The 2015 Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics will be held in Ibarra, Ecuador from 4 to 17 March 2015. The lectures will cover a broad range of HEP topics at a level suitable for students working for a PhD in experimental particle physics. Note that financial support may be available for Latin-American students attending the School. Although the School is targeted particularly at students from Latin-American countries, it is open to self-funding students coming from other regions.
Details and application deadline can be found here.
Barry Barish | 8 November 2012The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) held a “Special Linear Collider Event” as part of their 2012 Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference at Anaheim, California. The special event, held on 29 and 30 October, came on the heels of the discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC at CERN this summer and included an array of leaders in the field. There were presentations on the International Linear Collider (ILC) and Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) accelerators as well as detector concepts, the potential impact of the LC technologies for industrial applications and a forum discussion about future LC perspectives.

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 29 September 2011The worldwide accelerator community gathered at San Sebastián, Spain for the second International Particle Accelerator Conference. Besides being the annual rendez-vous of accelerator scientists and engineers from around the world, it is also a very good opportunity for them to meet with the industry.

Leah Hesla | 11 August 2011The R&D of industry is as vital to the ILC project as research performed in the laboratory. The Global Design Effort has formed close relationships with multiple industry vendors, fostering innovation and reducing costs.

Akira Yamamoto | 26 May 2011As part of Technical Design Phase 2, the Global Design Effort has been working towards more realistic and cost-effective industrialisation models for the production of superconducting radiofrequency cavities and cryomodules, as these are primary cost drivers in the ILC construction estimate. To that end, they have been organising a series of visit to cavity and material manufacturers and workshops. The next one is in July 2011 in Chicago, US.

Barry Barish | 17 June 2010Producing high gradient superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) cavities that meet our demanding performance goals, are affordable and can be produced by industry represents one of the largest challenges on the way to making a solid project proposal for the ILC. [...] Developing a worldwide capability to produce our cavities in industry represents an enormous challenge - one we need to address now.
