Barry Barish | 10 May 2012The ILC physics programme is based on building two complementary detectors that will share beam time. The value of having two detectors with different designs, technologies, collaborations and emphasis has proven to be a very effective way to exploit the science. For the ILC, we propose using a push-pull concept to cost-effectively share the beam between two detectors.

Sakue Yamada | 20 March 2008... I would like to ask those groups which intend to submit Letters of Intent (LOIs) to send me an email with the names of currently participating institutions and up to two names of contact persons. There are many issues to discuss and to do together with the LOI groups before the LOIs can be submitted.

Barbara Warmbein | 16 August 2007Like the rest of society, the ILC community is split into two categories: the early risers and the night owls. Workshop organiser Andrei Seryi considers himself a night owl. Nevertheless he is up at 5 and in the lab at 6 am many days per week these weeks, holding phone meetings with the rest of the world. Some hundred specialists are already extremely busy preparing for the ILC interaction region engineering design workshop, or IRENG07, at SLAC in September. Their goal: to have all the facts together to take important decisions for the ILC’s interaction region.
