For those, who are only interested in parts of the detector chapter:

Chapters 1 ("Particle Physics") and 2 ("Detector for the Linear Collider") of the CDR were prepared in a Joint ECFA/DESY Study "Physics and Detectors for a Linear Collider"

Organizing Committee:

L. Mandelli (Milano, chair), G. Coignet (LAPP, Annecy), M. Danilov (ITEP, Moscow), E. Fernandez (Barcelona, chair of ECFA), K. Gaemers (NIKHEF), L. Joensson (Lund), M. Leenen (DESY), D.J. Miller (U.C. London), A. Wagner (DESY)

The work was performed in four working groups:

  1. Physics (including e+e-, real gamma gamma and e-gamma); benchmark processes and generators.
    Conveners: J.-F. Grivaz, T. Sjoestrand, P. Zerwas
  2. Detector concepts; B field, hermeticity, tools, simulation etc.
    Conveners: M. Martinez, D.J. Miller, M. Piccolo
  3. Detector subsystems; vertexing, calorimetry, triggers etc.
    Conveners: M. Mazzucato, D. Saxon, R. Settles
  4. Collider-experiment interface; backgrounds, masking etc.
    Conveners: N. Holtkamp, M. Leenen, O. Napoly

In the framework of this Joint ECFA/DESY Study four Workshops were organized at Frascati, London, Munich and finally DESY.
