Certainly the articles should be merged. NLC was a particular group's proposal; now that the decision on technology has been finalized, all have agreed to call it the ILC. -- SCZenz 15:54, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

They certainly should be merged. However, it would be nice to keep the distinction between the old TESLA, the NLC and the GLC projects in the text. These merged into the ILC when the technology decision was made. 27/07/05

I agree. To keep the old NLC entry for historical reasons, while linking it to the successor project would seem the best course of action. --Kgf0 17:44, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

Merge completed[edit]

I ended up merging the articles. The old NLC and TESLA pages had minimal information, all of which I moved to ILC when it wasn't already there. Also, they were misleading in various ways, and were not being maintained as historical records. As such I think it's a lot easier to reference all the old projects from one article, and keep the weblinks about the seperate proposals for historical info. -- SCZenz 08:01, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

It's probably not correct to redirect the TESLA article to ILC since the TESLA collaboration still exists as collaboration for developing superconducting accelerator technology (not only for the ILC, but also for XFELs and proton accelrators. -- 00:18, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
I don't know that; the old article only referenced TESLA as the big new linac. Obviously I'd support TESLA being written as its own article, with a link to this one. Or you could add a sentence to this article about what the TESLA collaboration still does on its own. -- SCZenz 00:29, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

ILC Conceptual design[edit]

Now if they can just decide to put it in the San Joaquin where there are federal lines WAPA going in a staright line, we'll be OK. Or just put it in Hawaii, LOL Actually in the conceptual design most controls were going to be controlled using RF. I was working on some vacuum stuff before I left.

4th Concept[edit]

4th Concept can be found at ( 18:53, 18 April 2007 (UTC)) User: edurf, anne, 13:51,18 April 2007

Where is it?[edit]

Nowhere on this page (or on the ILC's website) does it say where the ILC is planned to be built. Anyone have a clue? Has it been decided yet? —Ryan McDaniel (talk) 13:40, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Nope, it hasn't been decided, they will choose between Fermilab in Illinois, CERN, and somewhere in Japan. (talk) 07:19, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I thought it was going to be in India, exactly where I have yet to find out. I've been doing a lot of research into this project and the LHC recently so I should be able to find it somewhere. Lowri (talk) 14:17, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

It still hasn't been decided. -- SCZenz (talk) 15:54, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Which gets to my point. The opening paragraph states "Research for CLIC is in progress to demonstrate the feasibility of some of the technologies in the year 2010 to allow a decision to fund the project afterwards. It seems unlikely that both CLIC and ILC machines will be built.[citation needed]"
HELLO, its 2012. Can someone update this sentence? Or at least rephrase it to make sense? Sunshine Warrior04 (talk) 07:39, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

'Largely considered cancelled'[edit]

A few mistakes had slipped into first paragraph, which is why the last sentence of it was deleted. The sentence on funding was deleted because both countries that, in the framework of larger budget cuts, had temporarily suspended funding for the ILC have put R&D for the project back on the agenda. The project is not considered cancelled -- please provide proof for this statement. ILC Comms (talk) 15:28, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
