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: , , ,

RPCs in the wild

| 27 June 2019 Technology developed under the AIDA-2020 project is sure to make the most out of collisions at future colliders. But did you know it might also be able to save lives? One detector made of resistive plate chamber technology improved under AIDA-2020 is set to take up residence at the side of a volcano in autumn to measure its inner structure using cosmic muons. The technology is called muography. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,
