Challenges and goals for the LCWS14 in Belgrade 6-10 October

| 3 July 2014 Summer conferences are only just starting, but Steinar Stapnes, director for CLIC in the LCC, looks ahead to the linear collider autumn conference and its specific challenges for ILC as well as for CLIC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The roadmap for high-energy physics in the US from P5

and | 22 May 2014 After the release of the European Strategy for Particle Physics last year, the strategy process in the US is also being finalised. The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) was put together and charged by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) to create a “10 year strategic plan in context of a 20 year global vision” for the US programme. The complete committee report was presented to HEPAP today and discussions about its content are ongoing. The P5 roadmap outlines a broad particle physics programme for the US, including strong endorsements for the ILC in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Ichinoseki-eki: get on board the ILC train!

Image: Ichinoseki city | 17 April 2014 If you ever come to the Kitakami region and visit the ILC candidate site in Japan, you may well stop or change over at Ichinoseki station (Ichinoseki-eki). Since a few weeks, local people and the visitors can view an ILC booth in the station, providing information about the ILC project and candidate site. Read more...

Newly formed European linear collider forum to increase communication with the project board

| 3 April 2014 The Linear Collider Board is the main decision body to promote and oversee the linear collider and its detectors as a worldwide collaborative project. In Europe, a new body, the European Linear Collider Forum, has just been launched to channel European discussions concerning the ILC and CLIC and to facilitate input for the international Linear Collider Board. Anyone interested to participate is invited to register to the mailing list. Will you take part? Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Physics and detector organisation – Progressing on delicate balances

| 20 March 2014 Without a solid physics case, state-of-the-art detectors and well-defined infrastructures like computing and links with the machine, a linear collider would have few arguments to go by. The Linear Collider Collaboration has working groups installed that make sure that the detectors can advance towards real collaborations and that synergies between the two linear colliders are harnessed as much as possible. Hitoshi Yamamoto, Associate Director for Physics and Detectors in the LCC, describes the current status of the physics and detector directorate where most of the components are now up and running.

Future Colliders: A strategic perspective

| 20 February 2014 Over the past decades, colliders have defined the energy frontier in particle physics. Currently there are four studies worldwide: ILC, CLIC, FCC and a muon collider. Each high-energy physicist can argue about which one of these should be pursued and have his/her own preference. However, considering the strategic aspect and the time scale involved in realising these machines, the ILC is the natural next energy frontier machine. Harry Weerts, Americas Regional Director for the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains why. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

LCWS13 – a timely linear collider workshop

| 24 October 2013 LCWS13 is the first International Linear Collider workshop after the completion of the ILC Technical Design Report, the European Strategy for particle physics, the ILC site evaluation committee of Japan announcement and the Science Council of Japan report. All converges to make it a very promising linear collider meeting, Hitoshi Yamamoto explains. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

ILC candidate site in Japan announced

| 29 August 2013 The ILC site evaluation committee of Japan announced the result of the assessment on the two candidate sites in Japan on 23 August 2013. As a location, they recommended the Kitakami mountains in the Iwate and Miyagi prefectures. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Strategy for linear colliders

| 22 August 2013 It has been another summer with discussions about future strategies for international particle physics. After work on the European Strategy last summer, the US strategy is on the table this summer. For the linear collider work the strategy processes have been positive, reports Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for CLIC in the Linear Collider Collaboration. Researchers are closely following decisions being made in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,
