Barry Barish | 20 August 2015As is appropriate for an anniversary issue, this week's Director's Corner is authored by Barry Barish, who led the project from its conception in 2005 through major milestones up to the publication of the Technical Design report in 2013 and the formation of the Linear Collider Collaboration. He looks back at past achievements and advises the linear community to remain very, very patient.

Barry Barish | 14 January 2010Over the past year, the ILC project managers have led a focussed effort to assess the ILC baseline configuration that is documented in the Reference Design Report (RDR) and as a result have developed a set of proposed baseline changes that are aimed at reducing costs and improve the technical design.

Barry Barish | 26 January 2006Our major theme for the past six months has been to establish a basic configuration for the International Linear Collider. The GDE process got underway last August at Snowmass and culminated in our approval of a strawman configuration at a meeting in Frascati, Italy in December.
