Whats in a Schedule

| 8 March 2007 Just before I presented at HEPAP, Dr. Raymond Orbach, Under Secretary for Science at the DOE, gave a presentation where he hypothesised a timescale for completion of the ILC of "the mid-2020s, if not later." Today I discuss the meaning and significance of that statement, as well as give my own views of what will determine the schedule of the ILC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

U.S. Congressmen Address ILC R&D and Industrialisation

| 8 March 2007 Last week on 28 February, U.S. industry members and scientists gathered at the Linear Collider Forum of America meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to start a dialogue with congressmen and senate and house staffers about the International Linear Collider. The recent publication of the Reference Design Report made the meeting a timely venue to discuss plans to increase worldwide ILC R&D, a programme that will require participation from industry members around the globe.
