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.

Directorate on the road

| 22 January 2015 The LCC Directorate is constantly reinforcing its bridges, especially with our Japanese colleagues. At this critical time before the decision whether Japan will offer to host the ILC is taken, they travelled to the designated site to inspect port, roads and discuss with local and national authorities, reports LCC Director Lyn Evans. If the ILC gets built, some real bridges will have to be reinforced so that heavy high-tech can travel from the port to the site. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

A chat with Masataka Miya of the Iwate Government

| 22 January 2015 Things are moving forward in the year 2015 – technical planning for the ILC is proceeding, and the Japanese national government is preparing to make a decision whether or not to host the project. But what about Iwate, the region home to the Kitakami candidate site? What are their plans for 2015? Masataka Miya, director of ILC Promotion for Iwate, talks to Amanda Wayama, International Communications Officer for the Iwate Prefectural Government, about Iwate’s strategy for the next year.

A year with the ILC

| 8 January 2015 For the ILC, 2014 was a year of progress in many areas, but the most important activities were centred in Japan, where Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has started deliberations to evaluate the physics justification as well as the scope and cost of the project. The past year also featured nice results from the ATF2 facility in Japan and the XFEL in Europe. Mike Harrison, associate director for the International Linear Collider in the Linear Collider Collaboration, didn’t avoid the temptation to look back before looking ahead to 2015.

Japanese industry getting ready for the ILC

| 11 December 2014 Japanese businesspeople and scientists gathered in Tokyo last week to attend the general meeting of the Advanced Accelerator Association Promoting Science and Technology, which is now a general incorporated association. At this occasion, three special lectures were given Lyn Evans, Hitoshi Murayama and Sachio Komamiya from the Linear Collider Collaboration and Board. The Japanese science community will closely collaborate with the association in the future towards the realisation of the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Voice your dream for the ILC!

| 30 October 2014 The ILC may be the first science project in the world that gets approval by video message. But only if there are enough of them, says LCC Director Lyn Evans. Everybody is invited to share his and her enthusiasm for the project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

ILC: What’s happening in Japan

| 18 September 2014 With a technical design well in place and R&D continuing on accelerator and detectors, the community is waiting for the next big milestone to occur towards the realisation of the ILC. Apart from crucial next results from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, all eyes are on the potential ILC host Japan. So what’s happening in Japan?
