Timely Technical Review

| 12 January 2012 The ILC Project Advisory Committee met in Prague last November to carry out a technical review of the accelerator and detector R&D and design programmes. This timely review provided a technical assessment of our R&D programme goals and ILC baseline for the task of producing the ILC Technical Design Report.

Taking heed of good advice

| 3 February 2011 The most obvious benefit of the seemingly endless series of reviews we undergo comes from the rigours of doing our preparations. But the reviews also serve to validate our work, and perhaps most importantly, the review committees give us good advice in their reports. Last autumn, we had a two-day technical review of the Global Design Effort by the Project Advisory Committee (PAC), a subcommittee of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC). Several recommendations came out of that PAC review that have been quite helpful to us as we prepare to make final decisions on the proposed new baseline configuration for the ILC Technical Design Report (TDR).

The first Project Advisory Committee review

| 6 November 2008 As we move forward in the Technical Design Phase, a new review process is being developed with two principle elements: a primarily internal review process for ongoing in-depth technical reviews and an external review process for accountability and high-level reviewing. Our external reviewers who report to the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC), the Project Advisory Committee (PAC) chaired by Jean-Eudes Augustin, held their first meeting in Paris in early October and have now released their first report.
