Field trip to a model lab

| 28 May 2015 A delegation from Kesen-Numa City, from Japan, led by the Mayor Mr. Shigeru Sugawara, visited CERN and the area around it from 18 to 20 May. The group consisted of 16 representatives from the city's Council, the Commercial and Industry Association, the Board of Education, the Reconstruction and Policy Planning Division and many other official bodies. They visited CERN to gather information on how a working laboratory functions and what it needs. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Building trust and big machines

| 28 May 2015 The Japanese town Kesen-Numa has large expertise in the fishing and port industry, but they have never hosted a major international lab. A delegation recently visited CERN to learn how these labs work, what they need and what benefit they bring to their neighbours. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

Crossing technical and cultural borders

| 28 May 2015 Accelerator experts from Europe and Japan have a long history of cooperation for projects such as ATF at the Japanese lab KEK, and of course the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. A new EU-funded project makes sure that cooperation continues with future projects like the high-luminosity LHC, the Future Circular Collider FCC, CLIC, the ILC and many more. The first researcher (from the German lab DESY) has already spent nine weeks in Japan to improve simulations for site-specific machine-detector-interface questions for the ILC.

“ILC to Japan!”

14 May 2015 The people of Iwate prefecture in northern Japan – the potential future home of the ILC – go to great lengths to show their support for the collider project. Banners under cherry blossoms and bumper stickers are just a few of the many examples of visible support – here are a few impressions from a recent visit of the interaction collaboration to the region.

Towards the realisation of the International Linear Collider

30 April 2015 At the ILC Tokyo Symposium, held on 22 April 2015 at the Ito International Hall, Tokyo, Japan, the Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) and the more than 300 participants from around the world at the Asian Linear Collider Workshop (ALCW) 2015 decided to issue a statement confirming their conviction of the scientific justification for a prompt realisation of the International Linear Collider (ILC).

Bright lights, big city – the ILC comes to town

| 30 April 2015 The organisers arranged a special “Tokyo Event”, to highlight the benefits of the ILC to Japanese society. More than 400 politicians, industry, media and workshop participants heard about the Tokyo Statement, Japanese demographics and followed a panel discussion that included the claim that physicists come across as ignorant. Mike Harrison sums up his impressions. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

April in Paris

| 16 April 2015 For the first Programme Advisory Committee meeting of the Linear Collider Collaboration, experts from all over the world gathered in France to review the status of the LCC and progress since the completion of the Technical Design Report in 2013. The committee was impressed by the progress both on the machine and the detectors. Brian Foster, European Director in the LCC, reports about the details.

Altogether now: ILC! #mylinearcollider

| 5 March 2015 This video of support for the ILC was recorded during the latest project meeting of ATF2 which took place from 24 to 26 February 2015 at LAPP laboratory in Annecy, France. Your message really makes difference. Participate in the #mylinearcollider video campaign, and ask your colleagues and friends to join, too! Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , , ,

Towards global political support

| 5 March 2015 Who are the counterparts to the Japanese Federation of Diet members in support of the ILC? What are the timescales for other future collider projects like FCC and the muon collider? LCC Deputy Director Hitoshi Murayama says the physics community should stay focused, consistent, and strategically uniform if it wants to convince decision makers to support the ILC.

Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 coming soon

| 5 February 2015 The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015) will take place at KEK from 20 – 24 April. The workshop will be devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high energy electron-positron linear colliders. It comes at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan and will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan, says Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto.
