AWLC 2020:   Americas Workshop on Linear Colliders

Date: October 19-22, 2020
Location: Virtual - Zoom Conference
Details at the Indico Site


Preparations for the International Linear Collider in Japan have recently moved forward with the formation of the International Development Team, hosted by KEK.   At the meeting of ICFA and the Linear Collider Board during this summer’s ICHEP conference, ICFA announced this new phase of the ILC preparations:
This step calls for renewed discussion of the possible contributions to this project from laboratories, university groups, and individuals.  At the same time, the developing United States community planning process, Snowmass 2021, calls for a coordinated discussion and articulation of the scientific significance of the ILC and the roles envisioned for US scientists. Similar planning exercises are being done in Canada and Latin America.  To address all of these developments, we are planning a workshop hosted by SLAC. The workshop will be conducted virtually the week of October 19-23.
The workshop will bring together interested scientists from the global community to discuss the transition phase toward final preparations for the ILC and to formulate updated community plans and actions. The agenda will cover the present status of the ILC project and the opportunities available for participation in accelerator R&D, detector R&D, and physics studies. It will also include a focused discussion of opportunities at the ILC for early career physicists.
The workshop will be by Zoom videoconferencing.  Registration is free, but please register to receive the Zoom links.   Registration is already available at the Indico web site.
