A potential US site for the ILC

| 20 September 2012 There are no official proposals for where the ILC could be located. Rather, our approach has been to develop an ILC design compatible with three “sample” sites that have different characteristics. In this process, we have by no means ruled out the possibility of housing the ILC in a shallow site, even though all three of our sample sites are deep underground. A new shallow site possibility has recently been suggested in Hanford, Washington in the US. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The vision to invite the ILC laid out

| 12 July 2012 On 10 July, governors, industrial leaders, and local officials of Japan’s northeastern area got together to attend a general meeting of the Tohoku Advanced Science and Technology Study Group. In the northeastern part of Japan, or Tohoku, activities towards inviting the ILC to the area has been intensified ever since the ILC was positioned as one of the promising means to recover from the disastrous earthquake occurred last year.

Baseline Technical Review 4 – conventional and unconventional facilities

| 3 May 2012 The fourth and final Baseline Technical Review was held at CERN on 22 and 23 March. The completion of this review marks an important milestone en route to producing the ILC Technical Design Report. The subject matter of this final review was conventional facilities, including a variety of site-dependent issues. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

A visit to the two candidate Japanese ILC sites

| 2 February 2012 On 17 and 18 January, several senior members of the ILC design team had the opportunity to visit the Japanese candidate sites. As reported in ILC NewsLine last month, the Japanese have identified two candidate sites for the ILC, one in southern and one in northern Japan. Today, I give my impressions following our visit to both sites. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

ILC goes one step further

| 19 December 2011 The ILC has reached the point where the Japanese government is starting to consider it as a possible future project in the context of Japan's national policy. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Japanese delegation explores European labs

8 December 2011 A delegation from the prefectures Fukuoka and Saga on the Japanese island Kyushu visited two European labs, CERN and DESY, last week to learn about existing research infrastructures and the labs' experiences with management, administration, local communication and a whole lot more. The region is one of two possible Japanese sites for the ILC, and the delegation, consisting of four members of the Fukuoka/Saga ILC planning committee, wanted to establish a dialogue with the European labs to exchange ideas and information. At DESY, they heard about DESY regional cooperation, socioeconomic impacts, innovation and technology transfer, outreach with local communities and of course DESY and the ILC. They also visited some facilities on campus, including the new accelerator module test hall for the European X-Ray Free-Electron laser XFEL, pictured here.

The future city of the ILC

| 24 November 2010 What will happen when the ILC is built? One hopes discoveries will change the way we see the universe. It will answer the questions about what the universe is made of. And maybe it will help generate new Nobel Prize winners... Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

The ILC in a mountainous region

| 30 September 2010 There is an encouraging possibility that Japan will bid to host the ILC. Earlier this month, at the autumn meeting of the Physical Society of Japan held at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, representatives of the Japanese ILC community announced two potential ILC sites.

The proposed Russian ILC site

| 10 July 2008 One 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Integrating ideas at Dubna
