LCWS2018: preparing for ILC realisation

| 4 October 2018 An ILC with collisions at 250 GeV is an “enormously exciting” first phase of the project, says the Linear Collider Collaboration’s Associate Director for Physics and Detectors, Jim Brau of the University of Oregon. Awaiting ILC project reviews in Japan while planning the next community meeting, LCWS2018, he explains how the Fermilab history of energy upgrades after successful and innovative management and operation could serve as a model for the ILC.

Powering detector developments

| 22 September 2016 There’s a fitting phrase for the funding landscape of international high-energy physics projects: “It’s complicated.” Hitoshi Yamamoto, Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration, describes the various sources of financial support, especially for developing future detectors, and where all of them stand. His advice: use all the opportunities there are. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Changes in LCC and in the US regarding ILC

| 11 August 2016 The mandate of the current LCC structure ends at the end of 2016 and ICFA has now put a revised structure in place. There has also been a change in the way the US supports ILC activities. Harry Weerts, current regional director for the Americas, describes these changes and how they will affect ILC activities.

One step further with the ILC Human Resource Working Group activities at MEXT, Japan

| 23 June 2016 The Japanese ministry of education, culture, sports, science and technology MEXT has been investigating the ILC project and the feasibility for it to be hosted in Japan with three working group activities on “Particle and Nuclear Physics” and “Technical Design Report validation” since JFY2014 and “Human Resource ensuring and training” since JFY2015, under the supervision of the ILC Advisory Panel coordinated by MEXT.

Driving cooperation projects forward

| 14 April 2016 The US and Japan work together on a long list of projects in high-energy physics, from current experiments to future plans. At an annual meeting of the “Joint Committee” in Japan, four new projects were added to the list of joint activities, and Harry Weerts, regional director for the Americas, reports that he sees progress on ILC work in Japan, but that US authorities are waiting for a sign from their Japanese counterparts before the project can go ahead.

Big science needs international partnership

| 24 March 2016 After a strategic US-Japan meeting earlier this year, the delegates from Japan recently briefed their colleagues on the outcome of the various discussions. The US and Japan have strong ties in science and technology, and the ILC plays an important role. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

KEK issues action plan for the International Linear Collider

| 14 January 2016 Japan's KEK laboratory took a step forward to realise the International Linear Collider on 6 January, issuing a “KEK-ILC Action Plan”. This plan blueprints how KEK should start its preparation towards the ILC when the Japanese government gives its green light for the project. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

New working group toward ILC in Japan meets for the first time

| 10 December 2015 Getting the best people from all over the world is one of the biggest challenges to realise the International Linear Collider, the next-generation electron-positron collider. That’s why there’s a new working group on human resources, called into being by Japan’s ILC Advisory Panel, to tackle the issue before the ILC has even been approved.
