ILC250 Higgs factory: ready for launch!

| 1 March 2018 The ILC with a collision energy of 250 GeV in its initial stage will be a proper Higgs factory, producing half a million nearly background-free Higgs particles over the course of a decade for true model-independent Higgs studies, as well as other SM tests and searches for other, new particles. "Bring them on," says Jim Brau, Associate Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration. "We are ready." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Successful visit to Europe: one big step for ILC realisation

| 1 February 2018 A Japanese delegation of 18 persons – Diet members, government officials, industry leaders, and scientists – toured France and Germany in a four-day visit seeking to strengthen relationships towards ILC realisation. Essential view points from the two countries on investment and timescale were clarified and confirmed with the delegation. The importance to include the ILC into the next European strategy for particle physics was also reaffirmed. Category: Feature, Uncategorized | Tagged: , , , ,

Preparing for the update

| 1 February 2018 With input to the update of the European Strategy for Particle Phyics due by the end of the year, the linear collider community has its goals clearly defined: progress on the political level and on technology. Steinar Stapnes gives an overview. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Proudly presenting: the new LCC management

| 8 December 2016 As many of you will have heard by now, the Linear Collider Collaboration was given another three-year mandate by the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA). It took the opportunity to streamline management a little, so from January we will run the collaboration in a smaller and slightly changed team. Let me introduce the new and old management to you.

Science First with the ILC- Keynote speech by Takeo Kawamura

8 December 2016 In his keynote at LCWS2016, former MEXT Minister Takeo Kawamura stressed that while fundamental research may have application in the long run, it's the science that is most important. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

ILC constructed in Tokyo’s Roppongi area

| 23 November 2016 A not-to-be-missed event in Tokyo this autumn was a 15-metre-long original art work representing the ILC. Designed by famous architect Jo Nagasaka, the exhibition was built with the help of more than 300 students in a traditional Japanese way with rammed earth. In one week, more than 40,000 enthusiastic visitors had the chance discover the ILC project in a unique way. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Interesting times

| 6 October 2016 Future ex-Director Mike Harrison dedicates his last corner to describing the challenges that come with a change of emphasis in the R&D. The main R&D goal is optimised SCRF cost coupled with optimal design – but it's not that easy, Harrison says. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

Changes in LCC and in the US regarding ILC

| 11 August 2016 The mandate of the current LCC structure ends at the end of 2016 and ICFA has now put a revised structure in place. There has also been a change in the way the US supports ILC activities. Harry Weerts, current regional director for the Americas, describes these changes and how they will affect ILC activities.
