Positron polarisation workshop: POSIPOL 2014, 27 – 29 August
POSIPOL 2014 will be held at the new library of Ichinoseki-city, Iwate. As the ninth of POSIPOL workshop series, POSIPOL 2014 will discuss issues of polarised positron sources, high intensity positron sources, X-ray/Gamma-ray sources, and their applications. The positron sources for the linear colliders, ILC and CLIC, will be main subjects, but positron sources for other colliders such as B-factories will also be discussed.

Brian Foster | 3 April 2014Now that there are great hopes that Japan will soon step forward with a proposal to host the ILC, the time has come for the Linear Collider Collaboration to take another look at issues related to ILC governance. Brian Foster, European director for the Linear Collider Collaboration, has just been appointed chair of the subcommittee in charge of producing recommendations on the organisation and management of an ILC lab in Japan.
