BCD - Dec.2005 Snapshot

What is this?

This area provides the links to the GDE ILC Baseline Configuration Document (BCD) as of December, 2005. This is the first version of BCD that was created by GDE based on the discussion held at Snowmass 2005 workshop and subsequent work done by the GDE Working Groups and Global Groups. It was released at the Frascati GDE meeting in December, 2005 (thus nicknamed “Frascati BCD”).

This area also provides the links to the comments collected prior to the Frascati meeting as well as comments compiled afterwards towards early January, 2006.

Global Nodes

The following nodes currently represent place-holders for each of the Snowmass Global Groups. They are not intended to be as complete as the sub-system nodes (which represent a snapshot of the machine configuration), but are expected to evolve over the next months as work towards the Reference Design Report (RDR) ramps up. They are subject to change and review, and do not necessarily reflect the status of the Baseline Configuration.
