Preparing for the update

| 1 February 2018 With input to the update of the European Strategy for Particle Phyics due by the end of the year, the linear collider community has its goals clearly defined: progress on the political level and on technology. Steinar Stapnes gives an overview. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Two Linear Collider events in Whistler, Canada this autumn

| 23 July 2015 As the summer conferences are kicking off, providing more and more complete LHC 8 TeV results and the very first glimpses of 13 TeV data, it is also time to start thinking about the autumn linear collider programme. The LCWS15 and the International Linear Collider School will be held in Whistler, BC, Canada. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

A successful Linear Collider workshop in Belgrade – and planning the main LC workshops in 2015

| 26 November 2014 After a successful linear collider workshop last month, which saw progress in site-specific studies for the ILC and detector optimisation for both ILC and CLIC detectors (and more), Steinar Stapnes is looking ahead to next year's workshops in Japan and Canada.

Efforts for the ILC to be matured “from Design to Reality”

| 2 October 2014 Things continue to evolve in the ILC design. In order to make sure that changes and optimisations formally make it into the new design, a change management board has been put into place, recounts Akira Yamamoto. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

In preparation for LCWS 14

| 4 September 2014 The next big linear collider meeting, LWS14, will take place in Serbia next month. Mike Harrison, Associate Director for the International Linear Collider, explains how this gathering will be key for the ILC project to discuss cross-cutting issues between the accelerator and detector communities and the workshop will emphasise on site-specific design. It should provide the forum to allow a final review by all the interested parties before adopting the new design into the ILC baseline. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Challenges and goals for the LCWS14 in Belgrade 6-10 October

| 3 July 2014 Summer conferences are only just starting, but Steinar Stapnes, director for CLIC in the LCC, looks ahead to the linear collider autumn conference and its specific challenges for ILC as well as for CLIC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Impressions from the 2013 Linear Collider Workshop in Tokyo

| 21 November 2013 Did you miss last week's International Workshop on Future Linear Collider LCWS 2013 but wish you'd been there? Or were you one of the over 300 participants who discussed the physics case for a high energy linear electron-positron collider at the University of Tokyo? Whatever your motivation, here is a slideshow with some impression from the intense five-day meeting. Accelerator experts and detector developers reviewed progress of the designs of ILC and CLIC and their detectors, looked closely at the latest Higgs results from the LHC and discussed possible future scenarios for turning the linear collider into a real project with a host.

A second snapshot of the evolving TDR draft

| 11 October 2012 The Technical Design Report will be the culmination and final deliverable for the ILC Global Design Effort. The report will be submitted in near final form to the ILC Program Advisory Committee in November for technical review in December at KEK. The drafting of the report has been under way since last spring. The GDE Executive Committee recently performed a critical review of a second snapshot of the evolving TDR draft.

Impresiones from Granada

29 September 2011 Linear collider researchers meet for five days this week in the grand Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos in Granada, Spain for the second International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders. Though a few local newspaper headlines would have readers believe that LCWS11 scientists debated the true velocity of muon neutrinos, conference attendees were far more interested in the particulars of the next precision particle collider. The conference organisers and its host, Universidad de Granada, also put together a vibrant social programme that included a public lecture by LAL Orsay's François Richard titled, "Viaje al corazón de la materia," and a visit to the grand, ornate Alhambra palace.

ILC community meets at LCWS and ILC08

| 21 August 2008 Which is the right word to complete this series: KEK, Snowmass, Hamburg, ... ? Chicago of course! After the first three venues, the fourth General ILC Workshop (ILC08) will take place in Chicago this year, organised in conjunction with the 2008 Linear Collider Workshop LCWS. As in the past, the workshop is supposed to bring detector and accelerator communities together. Results and plans from both worlds will be discussed in several joint plenary sessions.
