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.
Image: CERN | 23 January 2014One hundred metres under Swiss roads and fields, Yoshitaka Sakurada, Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, was pleased to discover the Japanese flag proudly displayed on an inner triplet magnet, one of the Japanese contributions to the Large Hadron Collider LHC at CERN. Guided in the LHC by LCC Director Lyn Evans and Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto, Sakurada and his team visited the tunnel and the ATLAS experiment, two examples of how international collaborations can achieve great things for science.

Barry Barish | 18 October 2012The S1-Global experiment was conceived to demonstrate the radiofrequency (RF) operation of an ILC cryomodule with an average accelerating gradient of 31.5 MV/metre. The project to build a segment of a superconducting linac system and test the string of superconducting RF cavities was carried out at KEK through a global collaboration. This experiment provided a significant and successful demonstration of the operation of eight nine-cell superconducting cavities and associated hardware components with components provided from laboratories around the world.

Image: ILC, Map implementation: Jeffrey Clark (GDE) | 19 January 2012Map implementation: Jeffrey Clark (GDE) The ‘international’ in ‘International Linear Collider’ isn’t just a part of a name. The ILC is demonstrably global, involving thousands of scientists from the Americas, Asia and Europe in accelerator activity, detector research and physics pursuits. The map is a picture of ILC activity around the world. Visit the map webpage and click around. And if you notice any inaccuracies or see that an institution is missing, please don’t hesitate to notify us. We can make corrections. Enjoy exploring the world of the ILC!
