Caring for Asian Accelerators

30 March 2006 Shin-ichi Kurokawa works actively as Chair of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC), which together with ICFA has created and is overseeing activities of the Global Design Effort. But he also has another face: For more than ten years now, he has been building a closer relationship between accelerators within Asia. His concern is not only for the electron machines but also for proton machines, synchrotron radiation facilities, and eventually, neutron scattering facilities in Asian countries.

GDE Welcomes Two New Korean Members

| 27 April 2006 The Global Design Effort used to have two Korean members, one from Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics (CHEP) and the other from Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL). But when a member from PAL moved to CHEP, the GDE recruited two new members, Jinhyuk Choi and Younguk Sohn of PAL, to restore balance. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

Kaoru Yokoya leads LC Office at KEK

and | 13 April 2006 As Fumihiko Takasaki steps down as the Asian Regional Director of the International Linear Collider to become the director of the Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies at KEK, he also steps down as the head of the Linear Collider Promotion Office, or LC Office, at KEK. His successor at the LC Office is Kaoru Yokoya, an accelerator physicist who has been working for the linear collider for more than twenty years. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

Hosting the LCWS06

16 March 2006 Rohini Godbole of the Indian Institute of Science, who hosted the combined workshop of LCWS06 and the third Global Design Effort meeting, sees the value of combining the phenomenologists, theorists, experimentalists, accelerator physicists, and people from industry to come together in one place.

Friendly Advice — KEK Publishes Interim Report on International Linear Collider

9 March 2006 When you need to make a decision, it is useful to have advice from influential people whom you trust. As the Director General of KEK, this was what Yoji Totsuka did to lead the future of high energy physics in Japan when ICFA announced the technology choice for the ILC. He set up a private ad hoc committee at KEK to discuss how Japan should play a major role in this international scientific project at an unprecedented scale.

ALCPG and GDE Announce Vancouver Linear Collider Workshop, 19-23 July 2006

16 February 2006 On behalf of the ALCPG and GDE, the Local Organising Committee of the Vancouver Linear Collider Workshop, invites you to the July 2006 joint meeting of the American Linear Collider Physics Group and the International Linear Collider Global Design Effort - organized by TRIUMF on the Campus of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, Wednesday 19th to noon Sunday 23rd July.

From Injection Systems to Kickers, KEK and SLAC Successfully Collaborate on ATF

| 9 February 2006 Last November, a team of accelerator physicists from KEK and SLAC succeeded in extracting three bunches of electron beam each spaced by 154 nanoseconds from the storage ring in the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) in Japan. (See ILC NewsLine, 10 November 2005) Using a "kicker magnet" with a pulse length of 310 nanoseconds, developed by SLAC, this important accomplishment delivered an ILC-like beam for the first time.

The Events in the Period of Chinese New Year 2006

2 February 2006 The first day of the 2006 Chinese New Year was on 29 January 2006. Following the 6 January announcement that an international research collaboration observed a resonant state at the upgraded Beijing Spectrometer (BESII), scientists celebrated very good news at this important Chinese festival. The discovery, which was reported in the 31 December 2005 issue of the Physical Review Letters, has aroused broad interest from the global high-energy physics community (detailed report). We believe that more interesting discoveries could be found in BES-III of BEPC-II, which is under construction at IHEP, Beijing, China. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

EUDET Kick-off Meeting

26 January 2006 The start of the European Union funded EUDET project is marked by a Kick-off Meeting at DESY on 15 to 17 February, 2006. The project assembles 31 European institutes and 20 international associates to prepare infrastructures to allow for ILC detector R&D with larger prototypes. Category: Around the World | Tagged:

Meeting in Beijing

19 January 2006 After the Frascati meeting, Asian institutes started seeking ways to collaborate on ILC R&D towards Reference Design Report (RDR). About 30 researchers from Korea, China and Japan met at IHEP, Beijing on 16 January. Indian members were not able to attend, therefore this meeting was dubbed as "ILC-Beijing", not "ILC-Asia".
