Global community meets virtually for AWLC2020

and | 24 December 2020 The global community gathered virtually for the Americas Workshop on Linear Colliders (AWLC2020). More than 500 attendees registered for the programme of talks and discussions on the status of the project. Here's a summary of the highlights.

Americas Workshop on Linear Collider Planned for October

| 25 September 2020 The first virtual Linear Collider Workshop will be held in October. A rich programme responding to and preparing for recent developments will hopefully draw many interested national and international participants, says an organiser. The workshop will work to build the Americas community engaged in the ILC and to motivate ILC contributions to Snowmass 2021. Register now! Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

CERN Council Open Symposium on the Update of European Strategy for Particle Physics

and | 30 May 2019 Six hundred (600) particle physicists gathered for discussions of the physics case for various options on the future of particle physics. This process to update the European Strategy for Particle Physics is mandated by the CERN Council every 6 or 7 years and this is the third time. In addition to people in Europe, there was a substantial participation from other regions, including the Americas, Asia, and Oceania. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

LCWS2018: preparing for ILC realisation

| 4 October 2018 An ILC with collisions at 250 GeV is an “enormously exciting” first phase of the project, says the Linear Collider Collaboration’s Associate Director for Physics and Detectors, Jim Brau of the University of Oregon. Awaiting ILC project reviews in Japan while planning the next community meeting, LCWS2018, he explains how the Fermilab history of energy upgrades after successful and innovative management and operation could serve as a model for the ILC.

ILC250 Higgs factory: ready for launch!

| 1 March 2018 The ILC with a collision energy of 250 GeV in its initial stage will be a proper Higgs factory, producing half a million nearly background-free Higgs particles over the course of a decade for true model-independent Higgs studies, as well as other SM tests and searches for other, new particles. "Bring them on," says Jim Brau, Associate Director for Physics and Detectors in the Linear Collider Collaboration. "We are ready." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Congratulations, Barry!

| 14 December 2017 This year’s Nobel Prize was awarded to our colleague, Barry Barish, a former, prominent leader of the linear collider community for many years. Associate Director for Physics and Detectors Jim Brau reports on Barry Barish’s role in the first direct detection of gravitational waves and managing large science projects.

Organising the post-2012 era

| 28 June 2012 The new Linear Collider Organisation is being planned with a united ILC and CLIC physics and detector effort. This is a natural step, but the devil is in the details. While there has been a lot of fruitful collaboration in the past, there also remain differences that must be considered. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , , ,

Past and future of the Worldwide Study

| 22 September 2011 The groundwork for the Worldwide Study, a global linear collider physics and detector partnership, was laid more than ten years ago. Since then it has been a driving force for coordination and development of physics studies and detector R&D around the world. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,

ILC community meets in Oregon for ALCPG11

| 17 February 2011 On the eve of the 2011 ILC Americas regional meeting meeting, Jim Brau reports on the progress which has been achieved in the ILC detector and physics field since the last meeting in 2009. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

SiD moving forward

| 16 December 2010 The SiD (Silicon Detector) Collaboration met in a workshop at the University of Oregon in Eugene from 15-17 November to review progress, discuss plans, and further organise its effort for the Detailed Baseline Design (DBD) report due at the end of 2012. -- Jim Brau and Andy White for SiD Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,
