I found the Higgs!

| 6 September 2012 Two little visitors at show off the souvenirs they received at KEK's open house, held on Sunday, 2 September. The girl on the right was very happy to find a "Higgs" in her toy capsule given away at the ILC exhibit. Visitor numbers have increased dramatically from last year's open house, probably due to a special kind of Higgs mechanism that attracts the general public to particle physics.

Japanese high-energy physics community says go for the linear collider

| 23 August 2012 The Japanese high-energy physics community has now published its recommendations in English. Their report strongly endorses two large-scale projects: an early realisation of a linear collider and a large-scale neutrino detector. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Report to build a new international science city presented

| 2 August 2012 On 30 July, a report called "Science Frontier Kyushu" was presented in the eighth meeting of a study group in Kyushu, the southernmost island of Japan. This report is indicative of the prefectures' aim in urban development to build a new international science city, which could be a hub of science research in the 21st century.

Quantity, quality and keeping the resources

| 26 July 2012 With the news of the Higgs, public interest in particle physics in general and the ILC in particular is at an all-time high. Kaoru Yokoya, Asian Regional Director, says that now is the time to foster this interest and find the next generation of particle physicists in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

The vision to invite the ILC laid out

| 12 July 2012 On 10 July, governors, industrial leaders, and local officials of Japan’s northeastern area got together to attend a general meeting of the Tohoku Advanced Science and Technology Study Group. In the northeastern part of Japan, or Tohoku, activities towards inviting the ILC to the area has been intensified ever since the ILC was positioned as one of the promising means to recover from the disastrous earthquake occurred last year.

New ILC website launched in Japan

| 14 June 2012 Particle cartoons, enticing images, animations and lots and lots of information – that’s what a new website dedicated to the ILC in Japan offers its visitors to help them learn more about the ILC and particle physics. Created by the Advanced Accelerator Association promoting science and technology, it went live on Monday this week. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

Some highlights from the KILC12 workshop

| 7 June 2012 The international KILC12 workshop was held in April in Korea to discuss topics varying from ILC physics to the nuts and bolts of the accelerator and detector designs for the International Linear Collider. This meeting came at a crucial time when the design decisions for the Technical Design Report was being finalised and the writing of the report being begun in earnest.

France, Japan and Korea cooperation in particle physics

Image: CNRS/Yannick Legré | 31 May 2012 For the first time, two internationally associated laboratories, the France-Korea Laboratory for Particle Physics and e-science and the France-Japan Particle Physics Laboratory (renamed Toshiko Yuasa Laboratory), jointly held their annual meeting, providing new opportunities for trilateral collaborations. More than 70 physicists gathered from 28-30 May at the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire, in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Talks included overviews from the directors of KEK, KISTI, CEA/Irfu and CNRS/IN2P3 and a review of the latest results of the collaborative work on particle detector and accelerator R&D, astroparticle and neutrinos and grid computing.
