All about the ILC

Welcome to the International Linear Collider! This project – we call it ILC for short – could be the next big adventure in particle physics. Currently at the planning stage, it would complement the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and shed more light on the discoveries scientists are likely to make there in the coming years. Find out more in this section about the machine, its status and the people who are working on it.
