2005 International Linear Collider Workshop Comes to
The 2005 International Linear Collider Workshop (LCWS05) will be held at
Stanford University from March 18 to 22.
The workshop will have more than 350
participants from around the world. (Poster by TechPubs)
This workshop is hosted by SLAC and sponsored by the World Wide Study
for future e+e- Linear Colliders. It will be the eighth in a series of
International Workshops devoted to the physics and detectors associated
with e+e- Linear Colliders.
History has guided us that lepton and hadron accelerators are
complementary in the exploration of new physics frontiers. The world
High Energy Physics community has reached an accord that an e+e- Linear
Collider operating at 0.5 to 1.0 TeV would provide both unique and
essential scientific opportunities; and endorsed with highest priority
the construction of such a machine. A major milestone towards this goal
was reached in August 2004 when the International Committee on Future
Accelerators approved a recommendation for the technology of the future
International Linear Collider (ILC). An effort is now underway to
construct a global design report for the ILC.
LCWS05 will consist of plenary and parallel sessions on the physics and
detectors for the ILC. On March 18, sessions will be held at the
Sheraton Hotel in Palo Alto. From March 19 to 22, the workshop will be
held on campus at the William R. Hewlett Teaching Center.
