Unite behind the ILC now

by Geoffrey Taylor

Asian countries are highly engaged internationally and Asian scientists continue to be at the forefront of international science. With the ILC, the International Linear Collider, Asia has the opportunity to host the most significant global collider in the coming decades.


ILCX: hybrid or fully online

by Hitoshi Murayama

Now is the time to dream up for new ideas of experiments at the ILC facility! Register for the ILC Workshop on Potential Experiments (ILCX2021) from 26 to 29 October 2021, which will be held either in the hybrid mode or fully online.


Invitation to join the SiD Consortium for the ILC

by Andy White and Marcel Stanitzki

The SiD Consortium is very open to new ideas and new colleagues who would like to contribute to our detector and physics studies and to push technology forward. We welcome participation from physicists at all levels. Join us!


Ready to take the next step

by Barbara Warmbein

The ILD detector is one of two detector proposals at the ILC, that take turns in taking collision data and look for exciting insights through precision studies of the Higgs, heavy flavor physics and searches for new physics. ILD has just undergone a thorough five-year concept revisit and development and is now even better and more ready for the next step than before, its international team of designers says.

    Many scientists support a plan to build the International Linear Collider (ILC), a straight-line-shaped accelerator that will produce collision energies of 250 billion (giga) electron volts (GeV). Though not as powerful as the LHC, the ILC would collide electrons with their antimatter counterparts, positrons—both fundamental particles that are expected to produce much cleaner data than the proton-proton collisions in the LHC.

    These Higgs factories will include the International Linear Collider (ILC) under consideration in Japan and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) at CERN, while the other two are circular: the Future Circular Collider (FCC-ee) at CERN and the Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) in China.
