Physicist Jie Gao started his international scientific research career
at LAL/IN2P3/CNRS, France 16 years ago. Since 1992 he has been
concentrating on accelerator physics for the linear collider, which was
the subject of his "Habilitation à diriger des recherches" obtained in
1996. Before coming back to IHEP, China as a professor in January 2005,
he worked on and collaborated with SBLC/TESLA at DESY, CTF2/CLIC at
CERN, NLC at SLAC, and ATF at KEK. He appreciates not only working with
top accelerator physicists
on different linear collider projects around the world, but also
contributing to the
ILC as a great school of education both in science and humanism.
As a member of ILC GDE, he now convenes the damping ring working group
Jie Gao, IHEP, China
His research interests vary from the global design
linear colliders, beam dynamics, damping rings, to the beam
dynamics of storage ring colliders. Working with J. Seeman
of SLAC on the beam-beam dynamics of PEP-II, he now plays a role in the
upgrade program of the Beijing Electron Positron Collider, named
BEPC-II, at IHEP in Beijing.
He attended the Snowmass Workshop for the first
and enjoyed the atmosphere and dynamism of the meeting.
"Detailed discussions with people such as Barry Barish and Shin-Ichi
Kurokawa are very fruitful in forecasting China's participation in ILC
collaborations," Gao says. "ILC is the main trend of the
community of high energy physics and accelerator physics and
technology world wide. As a personal point of view, China, as an
country in economics and science in particular, with its special
should and could play its role just as in other large
international scientific collaboration programs, such as ITER.
As an Asian country, regional collaboration with other Asian
coutries is of the same importance compared with other regions."
Gao also serves as a panel member of ICFA beam
dynamics committee, and as a guest professor at Beijing University and
SINAP, host institute of Shanghai Light Source. He is also a referee of

| Linear Collider Forum of
America Sponsors ILC Industrial Meeting at Fermilab
The Linear Collider Forum of America will sponsor an International
Linear Collider Industrial Forum on September 21-22 at Fermilab. More
than 100 scientists, engineers and industry leaders from the United
and Europe are expected to attend.

Following a number of successful
discussions at the SRF2005 and Snowmass ILC Workshop, the main goal
of this upcoming meeting is to provide industry with technical
information about the International Linear Collider. In turn,
scientists hope to receive some insight from industry leaders as to how
to develop a model for the ILC industrialization. "The purpose from the
lab's point of view is to transfer information," said Fermilab
Associate Director Steve Holmes. "At Snowmass we had great discussions
between the labs, universities, and industry on models of collaboration
in both the R&D and construction phases. There was also great
communication between industries in the three regions. We are looking
to build on these discussions at the September meeting."
On the first day of the forum, Fermilab and SLAC
scientists, among others, will provide background information about the
ILC. Fermilab Director Pier Oddone, GDE Director Barry Barish and
GDE-Americas Regional Director Gerry Dugan will all provide updates on
the status of the ILC and industrialization. Industry leaders from
Europe and the Japan Linear Collider Forum will also give status
reports on the industry activities in each region. The second day of
the forum will focus on more specific technical areas such as
cryomodules and vacuum systems. "We all have to work together to get a
clear picture of costing and engineering on this truly global project,"
said Michael Peiniger of ACCEL, an R&D-oriented company in Germany
that supplies superconducting cavities, complete srf modules and other
accelerator components and systems worldwide. "Participating in the
industrial forum at Fermilab is important for both the scientists and
the industries. The important thing is to gain more momentum and to
talk to each other."
Interested scientists and industries are welcome
to attend the forum free of charge. All industries should register with
President of the Linear Collider Forum of America. For more information
about the forum, contact Maxine Hronek
in the GDE ILC office. A complete agenda will be available online at
the LCFOA Web site and the ILC Web site soon.
|The two-week linear collider
workshop at Snowmass is now over. Both the 2nd ILC Workshop and the
2005 International Linear Collider Physics and Detector Workshops were
great successes. Holding these two workshops together proved to be a
very good idea because they provided many opportunities for the
accelerator and the physics/detector communities to interact (plenary
sessions, noon time accelerator physics tutorials, coffee breaks, etc).
Snowmass was a big milestone for the GDE. It was the first time the 49 members
of the Global Design Effort met together to begin our work. The first
week at Snowmass was primarily organized along the lines of the
accelerator working groups that were formed last fall at the 1st ILC
Workshop. The main GDE influence was adding six global working groups
that met each afternoon to begin focusing on overall design issues such
as costing, facilities, operations, machine parameters, machine
detector interface, etc). These groups made very good progress on these
After the first week of the workshop, the GDE
members and working group leaders met on Saturday, 20 August, to plan
the second week. In addition to continuing the work begun in the first
week, our goals for the second week were to concentrate on identifying
the decisions that will need to be made to develop a complete
baseline configuration and to make conclusions or recommendations on
them, where possible.
Tom Himel greatly facilitated this process by
assembling a list of more than 40 items, which were used to focus the discussions for the
second week. Conclusions and recommendations from each working and
global group, as well as for the "Himel List," are being assembled and
they will soon be available on our ILC Website. This will provide the
starting point for the GDE work this fall toward a Baseline
Configuration Document (BCD) by the end of the year.

>From Inside Oregon,
27 August 2005
Preparations for history's most ambitious science
project are on schedule according to the University of Oregon physicist
who co-chairs national and international teams preparing to use
"Einstein's telescope" when it roars to life in 2015.
Jim Brau announced $817,000 in new funding for
the project from the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science
Foundation during his closing address at the two-week workshop on the
International Linear Collider . About 650 scientists from around the
globe gathered at Snowmass, Colorado, to develop the technical designs
and scientific plans for this massive project.
