Advanced Accelerator Association Symposium in Tohoku 2016

September 10, 2016

2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Understand the ILC in 1 minute

The International Linear Collider will be the most advanced experimental facility in the world and be used to unlock the mysteries of the origin of the universe. Various agencies and organizations within Iwate have been working to get the ILC built in the area, so the people of Iwate tend to hear and see information about the ILC in their daily lives. But do you know what it’s for, and what it will do?

This symposium will give an easy-to-understand overview of the ILC and contents of its research. You don’t need to be a brainy science major to attend! We want to use this opportunity to tell you about the ILC and its significance.
