Register now for ALCW2015: Early registration extended
There are only a few days left to register at more favorable price for The Asian Linear Collider Workshop 2015 (ALCW2015). The Early registration has been extended – but only until Sunday, March 29. Register today!
Being different from the past regional workshops in Asia this workshop is co-organised by KEK, ACFA, and LCC and a new session organisation is attempted; detector sessions consists of several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups.
The workshop, being organised at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, will have a special focus on the ILC progress in Japan. Your attendance for his workshop will greatly influence the future of the ILC. Join us from 20 to 24 April 2015, at KEK!
A must-attend is the Tokyo Event on Wednesday – a sSymposium and a special Food Festa to be held on 22 April.
Please see ALCW2015 website for details. Seeing you in Tsukuba and Tokyo !

Barry Barish | 24 May 2012The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders met in the Shonan Village Center in Kanagawa, Japan on 17 April. FALC is an informal group of agency representatives who discuss large international projects in particle physics, both projects that are under way and those in the planning stages. FALC has given special attention to the ILC since it is a totally global initiative and has no home laboratory to oversee its development. The meeting in Japan discussed the future of ILC R&D beyond the Global Design Effort mandate to produce a Technical Design Report next year.

9 February 2012The next-generation B factory to be built in Italy will reach new levels in luminosity by employing the innovative crab-waist scheme at the beam collision point. The SuperB concept represents a real breakthrough in collider design. The low-emittance ring has its roots in R&D for the International Linear Collider (ILC) and could be used as a system-test for the design of the ILC damping ring. The invention of the crab-waist final focus could also have an impact on the current generation of circular colliders. Read more in CERN Courier

Barry Barish | 13 January 2011Happy New Year! This is my first column of 2011 and I am very pleased to begin the year by reporting on the significant new investment in particle physics by the Italian government. The Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research has announced the funding of the proposed €400-million Super B project of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). The present plan is to site the machine at or near the Frascati Laboratory and to reuse magnets and other apparatuses from the PEP-II accelerator and the BABAR detector at SLAC in the US, both keeping costs down and enabling a rapid construction schedule, perhaps as short as five years.
