CERN-KEK offices established

26 November 2014 CERN and the Japanese high-energy accelerator research laboratory KEK have a long history of collaboration. An agreement signed at KEK on 21 November puts this on even firmer ground: both labs will establish CERN-KEK offices to increase the collaborative effort on accelerator R&D and construction projects of mutual interest.

A successful Linear Collider workshop in Belgrade – and planning the main LC workshops in 2015

| 26 November 2014 After a successful linear collider workshop last month, which saw progress in site-specific studies for the ILC and detector optimisation for both ILC and CLIC detectors (and more), Steinar Stapnes is looking ahead to next year's workshops in Japan and Canada.

The 2014 ICFA seminar in Beijing

| 13 November 2014 The recent ICFA seminar addressed many topics and chartered the future physics landscape to fine and, if in the further future, less fine detail, says Harry Weerts, Americas Regional Director for the Linear Collider Collaboration. But he thinks one important thing is lacking: a mechanism on how to achieve consensus on what constitutes the global programme for particle physics in the future.

The future of Higgs physics

| 30 October 2014 The Large Hadron Collider, the collider that helped find the Higgs particle, will resume operations again in a few months. Scientists will dig deeper into the properties of the Higgs particle. How can the ILC help? By studying how it couples to light particles, for example, and measuring its lifetime, say theorists.

The fall and subsequent rise of the ILC project through the eyes of a particle physicist journeyman

| 18 September 2014 The ILC project has witnessed some ups and downs in the past decade. The story told through the career of a physicist involved with ILC detector research and development who experienced it directly, from his days as a graduate student till now, as a researcher in Japan.

Linear Collider School switches lakes

| 21 August 2014 The Linear Collider school, a week of intense lectures and discussions on all things linear, has just taken place at lake Chiemsee in Germany, switching from its former venue in the UK’s Lake District to Bavaria. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration, was one of the lecturers and reports about exotic PhDs and linear collider news from a monastic setting.

What does the P5 report mean for the International Linear Collider?

| 21 August 2014 The 2014 P5 report makes provisions for significant US participation in the ILC construction, should the project move forward. The particle physics community recognises the imperative for US participation in the project to maintain its leadership position in high-energy physics. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

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!

| 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...
