The Future Colliders unit, within CERN’s Research and Computing sector, is launching a new seminar series dedicated to future collider projects. The aim of this new series is to create an information and discussion forum in which to present the various activities related to the different projects being studied: the Future Circular Collider (FCC), the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) / International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Muon Collider.
“A lot of work is taking place to prepare for a future accelerator facility beyond the LHC,” says Michelangelo Mangano, leader of the Future Colliders unit. “And while the basic motivations for future colliders, and their physics potential, are usually well known, more detailed information about technological challenges and progress, achievements, timelines, etc., is typically confined to internal meetings, and thus less easily available to the CERN community.”
This new seminar series intends to inform the broader CERN community – personnel from different departments as well as users and visitors – about the progress on these projects. The presentations will cover aspects ranging from accelerator and detector design and technology R&D, to civil engineering and environmental issues, to physics targets.
The seminars will take place in CERN’s Main Auditorium approximately once a month, on Tuesdays from 11.00 a.m., with Zoom and webcast transmission.
The first episode of the series will take place on Tuesday, 14 March. It will provide a general overview of the status of the three main projects, as an introduction to the whole series:
