KEK changes organisational structure towards realisation of the ILC

| 28 April 2016 With the future in mind, Japan's High Energy Accelerator Research Organisation, KEK has made a change to its organisational structure regarding the ILC project. By doing so, KEK is getting ready for the "green light" from Japanese government. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

More time for collaboration

| 24 March 2016 DESY and KEK are two labs that have a lot in common. They know a lot about accelerators, operated and have operated a number of them in their long and eventful histories. They are their countries’ hubs for particle physics research, but they also run accelerators for photon science. They are national labs that collaborate closely with other institutes and labs from around the world. And, notably, with each other. At the recent DESY KEK Workshop at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, the two therefore decided to extend the existing cooperation agreement by another five years.

KEK’s science comic features the ILC

| 10 March 2016 LC NewsLine will provide English versions of KEK's science comic "Kasoku Kids" from this issue. The comic exists since 2008, but this new series has a new protagonist: the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Directors from major particle physics labs meet Japanese journalists

| 10 March 2016 On 26 February, members of the ICFA gathered in a conference room in Tokyo, Japan, for the press conference, explaining the status of accelerator science in the world. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,

Here’s your physics case, once and for all

| 11 February 2016 Dear colleagues, this one is for you. All those paper writing thesis completing report submitting physicists out there: here comes a new central paper for your list of references and your reading list. It provides a comprehensive physics case for the e+e- linear collider and puts all the topics and ideas from theory, collider searches, astronomy in context to each other. It’s been published in the open-access peer-reviewed European Physical Journal C (EPJC). Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

ARUP tool shortlisted for prestigious prize

| 11 February 2016 Remember the ingenious civil engineering tool that British consultancy ARUP has developed for CERN's FCC and that is also being used for site-specific planning of the ILC? That thing where you can play around with shafts, tunnels and rock formations without leaving your desk? It's been shortlisted for a prestigious award, so keep your fingers crossed.

A dream comes true

| 11 February 2016 The direct detection of gravitational waves, announced today by the LIGO-VIRGO scientific collaborations, marks another great day in the history of fundamental research. It is the product of years of preparation, data taking and hard scientific work and provides just as many answers as new questions to physics. One man has witnessed the project’s history and its breakthrough first hand and provides his personal view of the story (and what it means for other science projects): former ILC Director Barry Barish.

LHC Run-2 results to point the way

| 10 December 2015 Phil Burrows, acting Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration, says the linear collider community should be prepared for new results from the LHC over the course of the coming years, with the first to be announced next week. They will help us decide which future path we should take. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Collider facts

| 12 November 2015 In Whistler, British Columbia, some two hundred physicists gathered to the annual Linear Collider Workshop. As the last speaker of the meeting, I tried to summarise the status of various collider options currently under discussion. In particular, I tried to clarify their readiness and timelines.

Crossing technical and cultural borders

| 28 May 2015 Accelerator experts from Europe and Japan have a long history of cooperation for projects such as ATF at the Japanese lab KEK, and of course the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. A new EU-funded project makes sure that cooperation continues with future projects like the high-luminosity LHC, the Future Circular Collider FCC, CLIC, the ILC and many more. The first researcher (from the German lab DESY) has already spent nine weeks in Japan to improve simulations for site-specific machine-detector-interface questions for the ILC.
