Linear Collider


Vancouver - Canada is famous for being a peacemaker, a negotiator, and a broker of transition and change that creates a brighter future for everyone. On February 21, TRIUMF will do its part in fulfilling this role as it plays host to a meeting of the leaders of the major high-energy physics laboratories around the world. The key outcome of this meeting will be the completion of an existing global collaboration and the launch of a new team that will coordinate and advance the global development work for the Linear Collider, the world’s next accelerator project aimed at pulling back the curtain on the secrets of nature’s most innermost workings.

The new Linear Collider Collaboration (LCC) will combine the two next-generation collider projects, the International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), under one organizational roof and will be headed by Lyn Evans, former Project Manager of CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Some may recognize Lyn Evans as recent co-recipient of the Milner Foundation’s Fundamental Physics Prize. (Evans will give a public science lecture on Wednesday evening at Science World.)

The Linear Collider Board, headed by the University of Tokyo’s Sachio Komamiya, is a new oversight committee for the LCC that will take up office at the same time.

There will be a press conference on February 21, 2013, at 4:00 pm PST at TRIUMF in Vancouver, BC.

Lyn Evans (Director, LCC) and Sachio Komamiya (Chair, Linear Collider Board) will speak at the conference, and Pier Oddone (Director, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, U.S. and chair of the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA), Jonathan Bagger (Chair, ILC Steering Committee), Hitoshi Murayama (Vice Director, LCC), Mike Harrison (Associate Director for ILC, LCC), Steinar Stapnes (Associate Director for CLIC, LCC), Hitoshi Yamamoto (Associate Director for Physics and Detectors, LCC) and Barry Barish (Director Global Design Effort, GDE) will be available for questions.
