Welcome to the International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders
The 2016 International Workshop on Future Linear Colliders (LCWS2016) will be held 05-09 December 2016 at the Aiina Center & MALIOS in Morioka, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. LCWS2016 is organized by the linear collider collaboration (LCC). The workshop will be devoted to the study of the physics cases for future high energy linear electron positron colliders, taking into account the recent results from LHC, and to review the progress in the detector and accelerator design for both the ILC and CLIC projects. Being organized at a critical time for the ILC project development in Japan, we hope very much to have as many participants as possible in Morioka and boost the movement towards realizing the ILC in Japan.
