Newly formed European linear collider forum to increase communication with the project board

| 3 April 2014 The Linear Collider Board is the main decision body to promote and oversee the linear collider and its detectors as a worldwide collaborative project. In Europe, a new body, the European Linear Collider Forum, has just been launched to channel European discussions concerning the ILC and CLIC and to facilitate input for the international Linear Collider Board. Anyone interested to participate is invited to register to the mailing list. Will you take part? Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Press release: Colliders colliding

21 February 2013 Vancouver, 21 February 2013.
