PAC meeting in Taiwan: a discussion of long-term issues

| 7 July 2011 The ILC Program Advisory Committee met at Academia Sinica in Taiwan in May. In addition to their specific recommendations, they again urged development of a strategy for the post-2012 period, following completion of the accelerator Technical Design Report.

ILD collaborators make progress on detector design options

and | 30 June 2011 With the publication of the Detailed Baseline Design Report in their sights, members of the ILD collaboration work diligently to form realisable models of their detector, ones that take into account both their physics simulations and the nuts and bolts of engineering designs.

“Crazy” years await us – or maybe not

| 21 April 2011 Though the road ahead is long, the ILC collaboration has made considerable strides designing the machine and its two detectors, contributing to the advancement of other fields and bringing together a global community. Now we must keep up the energy for the remaining stretch as we fulfil our mandate to deliver its technical design. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , ,

Planning the Detailed Baseline Design Report

| 24 March 2011 The scientists that make up the physics and detector side of the ILC community come together to create the Detailed Baseline Detector Report, a document that reflects the newest developments and requirements in detector R&D. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , ,

New regional contact from Europe

| 20 January 2011 First of all a Happy New Year to all readers! We have now come over the middle point of the Letters-of-Intent (LOIs) process to produce a detailed baseline design (DBD) of the ILC detectors. The first half was very productive. Starting from the call for LOIs and establishing the advisory scheme, the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG), we came through the validation, which included both hard work for preparation by many people and elaborated examination by IDAG. Much work on detector R&D and physics simulation is now being continued to be integrated into two detector systems by the two validated groups. While further efforts are needed towards the completion of DBD, it is timely to make an interim report now, and we are already working on it. 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: , ,

What will happen after the DBD

| 19 August 2010 Right now, the two detector groups are striving to update their detector concepts towards the detailed baseline design (DBD) aimed to be completed in 2012. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: ,
