Changes in LCC and in the US regarding ILC

| 11 August 2016 The mandate of the current LCC structure ends at the end of 2016 and ICFA has now put a revised structure in place. There has also been a change in the way the US supports ILC activities. Harry Weerts, current regional director for the Americas, describes these changes and how they will affect ILC activities.

Bump or no bump

| 11 August 2016 High Energy Physics (HEP) has always been a field with great discoveries and the field seems to be ‘storming’ forward as some attendees of this ICHEP declared. Not only new LHC results were the center point of this conference but also the discovery of gravitational waves, new neutrino measurements and of course future facilities like the ILC and CLIC.

In the light of new accelerators

| 22 July 2016 Did you know that more than 1000 superconducting radiofrequency cavities for roughly 150 cryomodules are needed for accelerator projects which are seeking approval at the moment? And it’s more than 24000 cavities if we add the ILC and the FCC. The TESLA Technology Collaboration meeting is one of the key events to attract SCRF experts from all the world The latest one was held at the beginning of the month, at CEA Saclay, France.

International Linear Collider community meets at ECFA workshop LCWS16

| 23 June 2016 The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.

Coming up: the ECFA Linear Collider Workshop

| 26 May 2016 The ILC’s central region – the bits of accelerator and other technology around the point where particles will collide – will get special attention at the upcoming ECFA Linear Collider Workshop in Santander, Spain. But changes to the design, civil engineering issues and detector topics also feature on the agenda. ILC Director Mike Harrison looks forward to seeing his colleagues face to face, rather than by video. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

Spain and Japan strengthen industrial collaboration toward the ILC

| 26 May 2016 A Spanish Japanese Collaboration in industry and science? Yes, a collaboration which just took another important step to strengthen this relationship at May 13th at the Collaboration Opportunities on Fusion and Accelerator Technologies and Projects workshop at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo. Tohru Takahshi from Hiroshima University attended this workshop and offers his impressions about the actual developments and relations between Japan and Spain. In his short review of this event he included many details about the speakers, the Spanish Japanese History and of course a short look in further events. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

German particle physics community gives “strongest support” to ILC

| 26 May 2016 It may feel like only yesterday that the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics was adopted, but preparations for a new one, planned for 2018/19, are already underway. Germany has now published its first conclusions from a workshop on future electron-positron colliders that are very supportive of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , , ,

KEK changes organisational structure towards realisation of the ILC

| 28 April 2016 With the future in mind, Japan's High Energy Accelerator Research Organisation, KEK has made a change to its organisational structure regarding the ILC project. By doing so, KEK is getting ready for the "green light" from Japanese government. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

More time for collaboration

| 24 March 2016 DESY and KEK are two labs that have a lot in common. They know a lot about accelerators, operated and have operated a number of them in their long and eventful histories. They are their countries’ hubs for particle physics research, but they also run accelerators for photon science. They are national labs that collaborate closely with other institutes and labs from around the world. And, notably, with each other. At the recent DESY KEK Workshop at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, the two therefore decided to extend the existing cooperation agreement by another five years.
