Worldwide Study of the Physics and Detectors for future linear e+ e- colliders



The Worldwide Study (WWS) was recognised by the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) after an inaugural meeting of its organising committee in 1998 at ICHEP in Vancouver.

It coordinates in a number of ways the work of the three regional studies:

  - European (ECFA) Study
  - North American (ALCPG) Study
  - Asian (ACFA) Study

Results from these studies are combined in the Linear Collider Workshops (LCWS).

The international organising committee of the Worldwide Study provides the programme committee of the LCWS series. It has also been adopted as the Physics and Detectors sub-committee of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee.
