Lecturer: Marc WINTER

While CERN's Large Hadron Collider will be pursuing its physics programme during the next 15-20 years, the next generation of collider experiments is already being prepared since many years. It will offer improved sensitivity to the Higgs-boson and top-quark properties as well as to manifestations of physics beyond the Standard Model.

Electron positron collisions are privileged for these future experiments, planned to start around 2030. The lecture will cover prominent aspects of the most advanced project, based on a linear super-conducting collider called ILC. It will present its main physics objectives, describe the different components of the accelerator and the techniques involved as well as the experiments foreseen with emphasis on the key detection components. Finally, the lecture will detail several major physics topics targetted by the project.
