This document has been prepared by the
World Wide Physics and Detectors Study Group.
It is intended to set out the scientific case for a 500 GeV e+e- linear collider, upgradable to higher energy in future and with options retained for special investigations with alternate beam particles and added polarization capability.

|Call for Letters of Intents to produce detector Engineering Designs Reports for ILC
Guidelines for the definition of a Letter
of Intent (Oct. 3, 2007)
Shin-ichi Kurokawa, Chairman of the International Linear Collider Steering
"The International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC) announces a call for Letters of Intent (LOIs) to produce reference designs for the two ILC detectors. These designs will be detailed in two Engineering Design Reports (EDRs) to be completed on the timeline of the machine EDR being prepared by the Global Design Effort. The guidelines for the LOIs are presented in the appended document and a public presentation of the WWS roadmap for detectors can be found in the LCWS07 web site. The LOIs should be sent to the ILCSC by October 1, 2008 and will be reviewed by an advisory body appointed with the approval of ILCSC. This body, together with a management team led by the Research Director Sakue Yamada who has been appointed by ILCSC, will start a process leading to the formation of two groups capable of preparing the two engineering designs and the EDR documents."
Call for Expression of Interest (March 11, 2008)
Research Director of ILC
"The International Linear Collider Steering Committee of ICFA decided on February 11 to modify last October's call for Letters of Intent (LOIs) for ILC detectors in accordance with the new timeline of the Global Design Effort (GDE). The detectors are to be implemented in the ILC technical design, which will be completed in 2012. Given the stretched out GDE replan, the due date of the LOIs is shifted by one-half year to March 31, 2009....
In order to identify the groups which will submit LOIs, we call for an Expression of Interest (EOI).... "

||Proposal to ECFA for a new Linear Collider Study, September 2002
|| As the organizing committee of the Extended ECFA/DESY Study, we
propose that ECFA should support these activities for a further two years,
from Spring 2003. The three ECFA supported studies so far have played an
enormously important role in preparing the case for the linear collider.
This case has been endorsed by representative bodies in Europe, America
and Asia. An International Linear Collider Steering Group has been formed,
under the chairmanship of Maury Tigner, to promote the programme. It is
on the studies in the three regions to provide input on Physics and
Both the USA and Asia plan continued studies. The present ECFA/DESY Study
involves a widely distributed group of experimenters and theorists doing
feasibility studies, fundamental calculations and R&D. The momentum
of this work in Europe needs to be kept up to maintain our contribution to
the formation of an international user community.
ECFA accepted this proposal at their 29 November 2002 plenary meeting. The new 'ECFA Study of Physics and Detectors for a Linear Collider' will run to Spring 2005.
