Impressions from Iwate

| 8 December 2016 Wish you were in Iwate for last LCWS2016 workshop? Here are some impressions of Iwate, proposed region for the International Linear Collider. More than 320 participants from around the world gathered for one week to discuss the latest R&D developments, the linear collider physics case, detectors and accelerators and project management updates for the linear collider. Scientists were warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic local community of ILC supporters. They were also honoured by the presence and speeches of distinguished guests from the Japanese Federation of Diet Members and Iwate officials. - View slideshow - Lost in Tohoku?

Forming a new plan for R&D

| 20 October 2016 First bilateral discussions between the Japanese and US administrations have led to a new emphasis in accelerator R&D for the linear collider that is both good and bad, Lyn Evans says. More bilateral discussions between Japan and European and Asian countries will follow. In the meantime, the community will lay down plans for SCRF research for the next two to three years during a dedicated workshop-in-a-workshop in December. Evans, current Director of the Linear Collider Community, hopes for great turnout. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Advertising past and future sights

14 April 2016 Iwate Prefecture in Japan is advertising the attractions of its region in four Tokyo subway lines. It proudly presents the world heritage site of Hiraizumi – as well as its possible future attraction, the ILC! Some things are more likely to happen in Japan than in any other country...

Thirst for knowledge – the ILC vending machine

| 24 March 2016 Fancying a coffee in Morioka? Supporting the ILC? You could do both at the same time with the ILC vending machine. For each cup, part of the proceeds will go to the Iwate ILC Promotion Council. You will find it on the third floor of the Malios skyscraper next to Morioka Station.

Morioka welcomes next LC workshop

| 24 March 2016 In northern Japan, Iwate prefecture is full of cultural and natural attractions and – even more important – very ILC friendly. Local governments support the ILC with enthusiasm and the local population is quite knowledgeable about the ILC, from children to grandparents. Attendants of the next LCWS2016 workshop will have the opportunity to see it by themselves while in Morioka next December. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Linear collider scientists gather in Japan

| 4 September 2014 It's meeting season in North Japan: a series of workshops held in Ichinoseki as well as in Tokyo brings together linear-collider scientists from all sorts of backgrounds: polarisation, particle sources, detector design, physics studies, and, coming up, machine-detector interface and civil engineering.

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...

Cool Japan, cool Kitakami

| 17 April 2014 Sushi, anime, manga, Hello Kitty, and Harajuku fashion…Many aspects of Japanese culture are setting to tone of cool and trendy around the world. Japan’s Iwate prefecture released videos entitled “Cool Kitakami” on 8 April. Composed of four themes – Tourism and Culture, Life, Future and International Linear Collider, these videos introduce how cool it will be to live around the expected site for the ILC to a non-Japanese audience. Don't miss them! Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

A day in the life of a particle physicist in Kitakami

| 20 February 2014 The life of a particle physicist is the same everywhere in the world one might say. It’s true that the physicist’s work life at the future ILC is easily predictable. Computing and data taking or analysis, meeting with colleagues, tons of coffee and tea, short lunch breaks at the cafeteria (with “electron” and “positron” menus?), preparing for future meetings in the afternoon, plus, for the lucky ones, night shifts for a detector or machine survey. I’m not going to tell you anything new about what you know already. Let me tell you the other side of the story, regarding your afterwork life at the Kitakami site. Put on your most comfy easy-to-take-off shoes – there is much to visit here - and follow me to the Tohoku region. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,
