MAC – Thinking Different

| 20 April 2006 "We will all give our very best to support the ILC design effort in achieving a design that both works and doesn't waste resources," says Ferdinand Willeke, freshly-appointed chairman of the brand-new machine advisory committee - MAC. The committee is a group of 17 'wise old men' who all have a lot of experience and expertise in designing, building and running different accelerators. They come from all types of machines - LEP, the Tevatron, the LHC, HERA, SLC, PEPII, B-factories - and from all over the world. Their mandate is to review GDE accelerator activities and to assist and report to the ILC Steering Committee. They support and advise the GDE in their decision on which technologies and solutions to choose for the ILC, review their cost estimates and milestones and check whether the whole system works.
