After many a summer – and corner…

| 8 September 2016 Among the LCC collaboration changes that will be put in place as of January 2017 will be the abolition of the Regional Directors. In this week’s corner, Brian Foster, soon-to-be former-European Director, explains what he has learned in 14 years of dedication towards managing the linear collider project, and gives some advice for the future.

The new ILD structure

| 23 June 2016 The International Large Detector (ILD) is one of two detector concepts which are under study for the International Linear Collider. ILD started about ten years ago with the merger of two different concept groups. The concept group developed a detector design which was documented in the ILC’s Technical Design Report TDR. Over the past few months ILD has given itself a new structure, to address the future challenges of the ILC project. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

How great does the ‘Great Wall’ have to be?

| 9 June 2016 A long-standing issue that had kept civil engineers and accelerator developers busy has now been resolved: the design option of the loaf-shaped Kamaboko tunnel will have a separating wall of 1.5 metres. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Linear Collider Collaboration published Progress Report for the ILC

| 29 October 2015 The ILC Progress Report is a document outlining the technical progress after the publication of the Technical Design Report (TDR) in 2013. It contains the information regarding the progress in civil engineering studies, accelerator hardware design/development updates, accelerator system layout updates, integration/test facilities to be prepared for “hub-laboratory functioning, and updated project implementation plan, and further preparatory work.

Ten Years and Counting…

| 20 August 2015 As 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. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Updating the physics case for the ILC

| 19 March 2015 The physics case of the ILC boils down to three main points, says Hitoshi Yamamoto, Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration. A physics case is a scientific justification based on studies and theory. And while the case for the linear collider has been made many times, the LC physics community thinks that it is now much clearer. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

A year in review

| 19 December 2013 With the Higgs boson safely bagged by the LHC and the TDR published the last months were eventful to say the least. Linear Collider Board chair Sachio Komamiya looks back at what happened, what was accomplished in 2013 and what still needs to be done to make the linear collider an operational project in Japan.

Good things come in threes

27 June 2013 The last issue of LC NewsLine featured the two summary videos from the Asian and the European Technical Design Report handover event. Today we are proud to present part three: the summary of the Americas event that took place at Fermilab and culminated in the handing over of a gift-wrapped set of the report from Barry Barish to Pier Oddone. Relive the baton toss again...and again... and again. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , ,

Worldwide video

13 June 2013 The nature of a worldwide event happening consecutively in three regions of world is that people can only attend one of the three. So when celebrations ended in Japan and started in Europe, a video of the Asian event showed the participants in Europe what had happened during the day. Likewise, when Europe handed over the Americas, a summary video showed the key moments of both the Asian and the European celebrations. Watch these videos here.

The ECFA LC2013 workshop

| 30 May 2013 The European Linear Collider workshop, taking place in Hamburg from 27 to 31 May, coincides with very many important strategic processes at Japan, Europe and US, all of them nourished by the optimistic results from the LHC. Juan Fuster, chair of the workshop programme committee, explains the scientific and political context of the meeting. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,
