ILC candidate site in Japan announced

| 29 August 2013 The ILC site evaluation committee of Japan announced the result of the assessment on the two candidate sites in Japan on 23 August 2013. As a location, they recommended the Kitakami mountains in the Iwate and Miyagi prefectures. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Strategy for linear colliders

| 22 August 2013 It has been another summer with discussions about future strategies for international particle physics. After work on the European Strategy last summer, the US strategy is on the table this summer. For the linear collider work the strategy processes have been positive, reports Steinar Stapnes, Associate Director for CLIC in the Linear Collider Collaboration. Researchers are closely following decisions being made in Japan. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

The ILC at a glance 2

| 8 August 2013 “The ILC in 2 minutes”, the new ILC animation, now includes the latest machine and detector design and also comes with optional sound and various languages subtitles. Make sure to share it! Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

The challenge of technology

| 25 July 2013 Now that the ILC Technical Design Report is published, does it mean the design is frozen? In this corner, ILC Director Mike Harrison explains how maintaining the technical flexibility to obtain the maximum benefit from ILC R&D and other current projects is both a challenge and a necessity, especially for major cost drivers like the ILC cryomodules.

Higgs: the story of the beginning

| 11 July 2013 Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains the Higgs (in Japanese) in a three-part video series entitled “Universe and matter – the story of the beginning.” Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , ,

China’s strategy on next-generation high-energy electron-positron colliders discussed

| 27 June 2013 From 12 to 14 June, the 464th Fragrant Hill Science Conference on “The Next-generation High Energy Electron Positron Collider - Current Situation and Future Strategy” was held in the Beijing Fragrant Hill Hotel. Thirty-five front-line scientists from theoretical physics, experimental physics, detectors and accelerators from eleven institutes in China joined the conference. Scientists reviewed the achievements of high-energy-frontier experiments and current research programmes on particle physics both at home and abroad. They also discussed China's strategy for the next-generation high-energy electron-positron colliders. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

The ECFA LC2013 workshop

| 30 May 2013 The European Linear Collider workshop, taking place in Hamburg from 27 to 31 May, coincides with very many important strategic processes at Japan, Europe and US, all of them nourished by the optimistic results from the LHC. Juan Fuster, chair of the workshop programme committee, explains the scientific and political context of the meeting. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Strategies and realities

| 16 May 2013 The European Strategy for Particle Physics is expected to be adopted by the CERN Council end May. The physics potential of future linear colliders is well recognised in the Strategy statements. As global projects have cross-regional consequences, this strategy could have a wide impact in and beyond Europe. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Forming a united front of the LC physics and detector community

| 21 March 2013 Recently appointed Associate Director for Physics & Detectors in the new Linear Collider structure, Hitoshi Yamoto discusses his mandate and solicits inputs from the linear collider community. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

From technology to diplomacy

| 7 March 2013 On 21 February the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) handed over to the new linear collider structure. The Linear Colllider Board (LCB), chaired by Sachio Komamiya, replaces ILCSC, and the Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) replaces GDE and the groups working on physics and detectors for both the ILC and CLIC. The LCC of course also includes the CLIC study. Linear Collider Director Lyn Evans looks ahead. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,
