General Information

The purpose of the IP Beam Instrumentation (IPBI) Working Group is to specify in detail the beam instrumentation necessary to achieve the physics goals of a 500 GeV linear collider. For more details please see the first announcement.


Working group meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month. See the meeting page for details.

A SLAC mailing list, lcd-bi, exists for communications about IPBI.  Information about this list can be found here.  Instructions for subscribing to the list can be found here.  Messages can be posted by sending email to  Archives of the lcd-bi mail items can be found here.

A WORKSHOP on the Machine-Detector Interface at the ILC was held at  SLAC, January 6-8, 2005.

IPBI and MDI agendas at Snowmass, Aug. 14-27, 2005.  Additional references from Aug. 3 IPBI meeting.

The FY04 university R&D proposal to DOE and NSF is available here.
Information for FY05 proposals (due January 21, 2005) can be found here.
