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.
