SiD detector concept meeting at SLAC

6 March 2008 After the news about budget reductions, especially for ILC activities, in December last year in the UK and US, there was considerable discussion within SiD whether to have this meeting or not. In the end we decided to proceed as planned because the call for LOIs still exists and SiD wants to prepare an LOI. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Live from ALCPG

25 October 2007 A hotel built around a New Orleans street, burgers for lunch, autumn colours, bison and a duelling piano - this must be ALCPG! More than 300 machine and detector people and theorists have been debating and planning the ILC's entry into the Engineering Design Phase this week and are now looking forward to the R&D tours this afternoon and the conference dinner tonight. DOE Under Secretary for Science Raymond L. Orbach addressed the community on Monday. A lively 'duelling scientists' session on Tuesday circled around questions on the project's future. The vertex detector review is still going on, and the new Research Director will officially take up office on Friday, so stay tuned for more news next week. In the meantime have a look at some impressions of the week so far. Category: Feature, Slideshow | Tagged: ,

Windy city prepares for ALCPG07

| 13 September 2007 Get ready for deep-dish pizza and hot dogs piled high with onions, peppers and a pickle because the 2007 American Linear Collider Physics Group and International Linear Collider Global Design Effort meetings are heading for the windy city. Fermilab, located just outside Chicago, Illinois, will host the joint ALCPG07 meeting on 22-26 October in a continuing series of workshops on the physics, detector and accelerator issues of the proposed ILC. Interested participants should register soon, as the deadline to book a hotel room is 21 September. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,
