Two Linear Collider events in Whistler, Canada this autumn

by Steinar Stapnes

As the summer conferences are kicking off, providing more and more complete LHC 8 TeV results and the very first glimpses of 13 TeV data, it is also time to start thinking about the autumn linear collider programme. The LCWS15 and the International Linear Collider School will be held in Whistler, BC, Canada.

    In August 2013, the Kitakami mountain region in Japan’s north-east was chosen as the country’s candidate site for the International Linear Collider (ILC). The ILC is a mammoth project to build a huge underground particle accelerator over 30 kilometers long. It aims to recreate conditions in the universe right after the Big Bang, to track down unknown elementary particles and new physics phenomena. Tune in as we lift the veil on preparations for this colossal global project.
