Joint ECFA / DESY Study: Physics and Detectors for a Linear Collider
ECFA announces joint working groups with DESY to study both the physics
potential of an e+e- linear collider of 500 GeV or more C. of M. energy,
conceptual design of the required detectors. The groups will be formed at a
first workshop in Frascati 5-6 February 1996. There will be a second workshop
in early July, and the results will be gathered together at a final workshop
in November 1996 at DESY.
February to November 1996
Four working groups will be set up, covering:
A consensus is growing in the worldwide HEP community that the physics
programme of a linear e+e- collider would complement the ongoing pp
programme of the LHC. As a result of an intercontinental collaboration
towards the realisation of the linear collider, conceptual design reports
are in preparation in the USA and in Japan. They are expected to appear
at the end of 1998. The purpose of the joint ECFA/DESY workshops is to
match the intensive work on the conceptual designs for the TESLA and S-band
accelerators with a conceptual detector design. This study
will draw on the results of previous physics studies done in Europe and
elsewhere in preparation for the LCWS workshops, in Finland, in Hawaii and
at Morioka, Japan, September 1995.
