Linear Collider Accelerator School

| 12 July 2012 A very talented group of accelerator physicists have come together from around the world to develop the technologies and design for a next-generation lepton collider that will complement CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Who better to learn accelerator physics from? The International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders to be held in Indore, India, next autumn offers this opportunity and applications are being accepted now for this year’s school.

Make no assumptions

| 5 July 2012 The LHC experiments are definitely homing in on a Higgs boson in a mass region somewhere around 126 GeV. Further studies and more data from the LHC will tell us more about what it is that they have found, but only a linear collider will be able to tell without prejudice whether it’s a Standard Model Higgs (or not) and determine its mass with a precision down to about 60 MeV. Here’s how. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

The Higgs and the ILC

| 5 July 2012 The announcements of the most recent results from the search for the Higgs boson at the LHC bring into sharper focus the new physics at the energy frontier and the potential role of the ILC. Although it is still too soon to know what will be uncovered regarding the Higgs mechanism from studies at the LHC, it is worth pointing out the long-range potential for Higgs physics at the ILC. Two examples illustrate how the ILC will be able to shed further light on the phenomena seen at the LHC. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

The Higgs is Different

| 5 July 2012 The Higgs is Different, says Jonathan Bagger, a theoretical physicist and chair of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee ILCSC. It has no spin, it fills the vacuum, but most importantly, it opens the door to a new range of questions. Questions which a linear collider with its clean and controlled collisions could help answer.

Organising the post-2012 era

| 28 June 2012 The new Linear Collider Organisation is being planned with a united ILC and CLIC physics and detector effort. This is a natural step, but the devil is in the details. While there has been a lot of fruitful collaboration in the past, there also remain differences that must be considered. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , , ,

New leadership for the Linear Collider

| 21 June 2012 ICFA announced yesterday that Lyn Evans will become the new Linear Collider Director, when the Global Design Effort (GDE) completes the ILC Technical Design Report and thereby its mandate next year. This is very welcome news! Not only is Lyn a superb and exceptionally well-qualified candidate for the job, but his early appointment will give us the opportunity to make a smooth transition.

From ICFA : Lyn Evans appointed as Linear Collider Director

21 June 2012 The international effort to design the world’s next major particle collider has a new leader. On 20 May 2012, the International Committee for Future Accelerators announced the appointment of CERN's Lyn Evans as the new Linear Collider Director. Evans is the first to hold the new position, which will lead the Linear Collider organisation created to bring two existing large-scale linear collider programmes under one governance. He will be based at CERN. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

From CERN Courier: Viewpoint: Authors and supporters

5 April 2012 While people often grasp only a fraction of the physics at stake, they easily recognise the full extent of the human undertaking. Particle-physics experiments and accelerators are, indeed, miracles of technology and major examples of worldwide co-operation and on-site teamwork. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,

ICFA leaders discuss the ILC

13 October 2011 CERN Director General Rolf Heuer, Fermilab Director Pier Oddone and KEK Director General Atsuto Suzuki discuss the state of high-energy physics at the Geneva Press Club's press conference of the International Committee on Future Accelerators. The lab directors begin directly addressing the press at 6'44. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Europe launches update of strategy for particle physics

| 4 August 2011 The year 2012 will be a crucial one for particle physics. Physicists expect the Large Hadron Collider and astroparticle physics experiments to draw a clearer picture of the field so that, at the end of the year, the CERN Council could vote on an update of the European strategy for particle physics and, in this way, announce Europe’s top priorities for the five years to follow.
