From Fermilab Today: ILCSC and ICFA meetings

23 February 2012 Meetings for the International Linear Collider Steering Committee and the International Committee for Future Accelerators recently took place in Oxford, England. One of the principal issues discussed at both meetings was a new organisation for the worldwide linear collider effort. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

FALC meets at CERN

| 17 November 2011 The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders (FALC), an informal group of agency representatives met at CERN on 6 October. FALC is constituted to improve the possibilities for international cooperation in high-energy physics by understanding the planning processes in the funding agencies, exchanging information on plans and statuses of projects in different countries or regions and preparing for cooperation on future particle physics facilities. Highlights of this FALC meeting included discussion of plans for the ILC and more generally for lepton colliders following completion of the ILC Technical Design Report, as well as discussions of plans for the European Strategy Update just getting underway.

GDE position paper on post-TDR

| 13 October 2011 In anticipation of completing the Global Design Effort’s final deliverable, the Technical Design Report, by the end of 2012, serious discussions are underway as to the next steps and what will follow. The International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) is taking primary responsibility for creating a plan. As part of the process, the GDE Executive Committee submitted a position paper to ILCSC for its meeting in Mumbai, India in August. I share our input with our readers today.

Important meetings to come, important discussions to happen

| 21 July 2011 The high-energy physics community is gearing up to learn the latest from the world’s large particle colliders, to be presented at conferences this summer. The reports may guide the future efforts of the ILC community coming after the detector community’s detailed baseline design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , ,

PAC meeting in Taiwan: a discussion of long-term issues

| 7 July 2011 The ILC Program Advisory Committee met at Academia Sinica in Taiwan in May. In addition to their specific recommendations, they again urged development of a strategy for the post-2012 period, following completion of the accelerator Technical Design Report.

Congratulations to Shin-ichi Kurokawa

| 30 June 2011 Shin-ichi Kurokawa, who has been so instrumental in developing the Asian collaboration for the Global Design Effort, was awarded the Rolf Widerøe Prize for outstanding work in the accelerator field by the European Physical Society Accelerator Group Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Interim report on the ILC R&D programme

| 16 June 2011 We have reached the midpoint in the ILC R&D efforts towards the Technical Design Report. In recognition of that milestone, we release today a new report entitled International Linear Collider: A Technical Progress Report. This report gives a comprehensive summary of the major accomplishments to date of the ILC R&D programmes. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

ILCSC reviews GDE progress and plans

| 7 April 2011 The International Linear Collider Steering Committee met in Beijing in February and carried out their review of the Global Design Effort progress. They also had lively and informative discussions regarding the future of the worldwide efforts towards the ILC and beyond 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,
