Now open: the Planning Office for the International Linear Collider to realise the ILC

| 6 February 2014 I am pleased to be in charge to provide the Director’s Corner in timely manner and coinciding with a public announcement from KEK. KEK has set up a Planning Office for the International Linear Collider, headed by Atsuto Suzuki, Director General of KEK. It may serves a precursor for an international planning organisation for the ILC, in the preparation phase starting after the Technical Design Phase completed.

From DESY inForm: Under one roof

| 19 December 2013 One-stop (work)shopping for high-gradient cavities: in a new lab at DESY in Hamburg all inspection and treatment processes for cavities come together under one roof to make treatment faster and more reliable and prepare for serial production.

Planning for the future of the US high-energy-physics programme

| 21 November 2013 The US Department of Energy High Energy Physics Advisory Panel is currently in the process of updating the 2008 US High Energy Physics roadmap. The Committee will produce a draft report by early March 2014 and a final report by May. Mike Harrison, Associate Director for the International Linear Collider, explains the context and possible outcome, for the ILC, of this roadmap. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

“The GDE must write” – The first steps to the ILC Technical Design Report

| 23 November 2011 ILC Project Manager Nick Walker describes the several books that will form up the ILC Technical Design Report. This ambitious document, planned to be released by Spring 2013, should reflect the enormous job led by the Global Design Effort over the last years. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

International Linear Collider Steering Committee confronts ILC R&D support issues

| 20 May 2010 The most recent meeting of the ILCSC, chaired by Jon Bagger, was held on 25 February 2010 at Brookhaven National Laboratory, a day before the meeting of ICFA. This meant that many of the major laboratory directors could take part in the ILCSC meeting, and since much of the ILC R&D programme is carried out through these laboratories, this meeting presented the opportunity to have meaningful and frank discussions of the support and resources needed to achieve the high-priority ILC R&D goals, both for the ILC accelerator and detector efforts.

Technological Benefits from ILC R&D

| 9 April 2009 We are pursuing a very ambitious R&D programme in order to develop the technologies that will be required to build the International Linear Collider. Recognising that important technological benefits are resulting from our ILC R&D programme, the Funding Agencies for Large Colliders, a group composed of representatives of national science funding agencies worldwide, commissioned a study.

ILC R&D plan updated

| 5 March 2009 We characterise the present period of the Global Design Effort activities as a four-year programme to prepare ourselves to be ready to propose a well conceived ILC construction project to collaborating governments by around 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Involving Spain in the ILC R&D programme

| 12 February 2009 We had a nearly two-day meeting with the Spanish particle physics groups to explore collaborations for the ILC last month. (...) These meetings gave us a much better understanding of the capabilities and ambitions of the Spanish groups and gave them a better picture of the opportunities in ILC R&D and design work. We expect to continue these productive discussions, leading up to increased Spanish involvement in the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Progress and plans for ILC R&D at JLab

| 16 October 2008 Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) in Newport News, Virginia is a major DoE laboratory for Nuclear Physics. The laboratory has a pioneering 6 GeV electron accelerator that is based on superconducting RF accelerating technology. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Hot off the press: Technical Design Phase ILC R&D plan

| 19 June 2008 The R&D plan outlines our strategy to advance the ILC design effort to the point where we will be ready to propose a robust construction project in a few years. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,
