Barry Barish | 23 August 2012The International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) met in Melbourne at ICHEP12 to deal with the completion of its own mission and the initiation of a new organisation to pursue a future linear collider project. The ILC Technical Design Report (TDR) and companion Detailed Baseline Design (DBD) report will represent the final milestone in the mandate for the ILCSC. The ILCSC balanced its planning for receiving, reviewing and rolling-out of these reports over the coming year, with planning for the new organisational structure that will take the next steps toward a global linear collider project.
