2005 International Linear Collider Workshop Comes to Stanford

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.
