Barry Barish | 10 July 2008One of the most difficult and tricky issues for the Global Design Effort in carrying out our design work is how to approach the siting issue for the ILC before proposals are actually solicited for hosting the machine. Conventional facilities are a major part of the project, accounting for almost one third of the total costs. Therefore, in order to bring as much reality to our reference design as possible, we asked for and studied three "sample sites," one from each region.

Barry Barish | I am often asked where the ILC will be sited. The mere fact that I am asked such a question tells me that some of you think we know more than we are revealing about where the ILC will eventually be located.
