Toptics of interest related to the study
 FNAL Circle Line Tours
Series of 'CIRCLE LINE TOUR' talks being held at Fermilab to address physics issues central to future colliders.
 Line Drive
FNAL series of Linear Collider Double Headers
Between January 2001 and Snowmass 2001, in June-July, this series of talks was intended to energize the discussion of US high energy physicists of future initiatives, in particular the possibility of a Linear Collider.
  Laser based beam diagnostics R&D activities
The aim of the Laser Based Beam Diagnostics (LBBD) Collaboration is to study the feasibility of laser based diagnostics tools for future linear electron positron colliders.
The objectives of the laserwire project are to develop laser based techniques to measure the dimensions of electron (positron) bunches in a linear collider and optimizing their application using simulations.
 IP Beam Instrumentation Study
The purpose of the IP Beam Instrumentation study is to move beyond conceptual ideas and begin to specify in detail the beam instrumentation necessary to achieve the physics goals of a 500 GeV linear collider.
 LHC/LC Study Group
The aim of the LHC/LC Study Group is to investigate how analyses at the LHC could profit from results obtained at a LC and vice versa. It is furthermore studied how informations obtained at both machines can most effectively be put together in order to explore the physics of weak and strong electroweak symmetry breaking, Supersymmetric models, new gauge theories, models with extra dimensions, and electroweak and QCD precision physics.
 Detector R&D topics of interest
Informations on detector R&D for linear collider
 Testbeam
Informations on Linear Collider test beam efforts
  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,
