Accelerating around the globe: big logistics experiment kicks off with Pre-lab phase

| 1 June 2021 The devil is in the detail. If a particle physics experiment doesn’t work, it’s often the low-tech components that cause trouble, not the high-tech ones, because the high-tech ones have been tested to the core. To avoid teething and logistics problems for the ILC, a project called “Cryomodule Global Transfer” will kick off next year. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

From CNRS: Joint French-Japanese laboratory in Tokyo for physics at the largest and smallest scales

19 April 2021 From neutrinos to dark matter, and from particle accelerators to gravitational wave detectors and the first light of the Universe: the ILANCE laboratory, bringing together the CNRS and the University of Tokyo, will conduct physics research at the very smallest and largest scales of our Universe.

Laboratories and industry in tune for particle physics detector R&D in Europe

| 19 April 2021 10 million euros. This will be the amount granted to members of the AIDAinnova project funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme. As particle physics requires highly-specialised detection equipment, often on an industrial scale, this project will be strongly marked by the collaboration between industry and academic institutions. Coordinated by CERN, it will explore advancement and innovation for particle physics detectors, including those proposed for the ILC. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

New organisation in Tohoku, the ILC’s potential host region

| 26 February 2021 Making the Tohoku area a welcoming place for the ILC and those who will live there – that is the goal of the newly established Tohoku ILC Project Development Center. It comprises 22 academic and local organisations in the north east of Japan. Atsuto Suzuki, president of the Iwate Prefectural University and former director general of KEK chairs the organisation.  Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Japanese high-energy physics community accelerates ILC effort with new organisation

| 31 January 2021 Since last October a new panel mandated by the Japan Association of High Energy Physicists will lead the Japanese community by developing and executing ILC promotion strategies targeted to a very wide audience, within Japan and abroad, in view of a timely realisation of the ILC project. Their first report is now available online in Japanese and English. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

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.

Perspective: Early-career scientists weigh in on the ILC project

24 December 2020 For the early-career physicists, the ILC may be the only new energy frontier accelerator in which they take a leadership role. See their enthusiasm and concern about the project.

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: , , ,

KEK publishes the International Working Group’s Recommendations for International Linear Collider

| 1 November 2019 KEK published a document on the recommendations for the ILC, a next-generation particle physics project, based on the report by the International Working Group on the ILC.

Japanese government delegation visits Germany and France

, and | 1 November 2019 On 1 and 2 July, a high-level delegation of the Japanese government led by Diet Members and MEXT officials visited Germany and France to show the current status of the ILC project and convey the governmental will to go ahead with the evaluation process towards a final decision. Discussions, which took place at German and French Ministry level, highlighted that the ILC process in Japan is progressing steadily and is considered as a major investment for the future of physics.
