“The International Linear Collider: the physics and its challenges”

Dr. Professor Hendrik J. M. Weerts
Director of the High Energy Physics Division , Argonne National Laboratory

Starting with overview of the precision physics case for the International Linear Collider(ILC), the talk will outline the required accelerator and detector performance to do this physics. Based on this performance the talk will outline what improvements need to be made in detectors and accelerator design to realize the physics potential. I will give a status of the worldwide ILC activities, what still needs to be done in the future and describe the status of the current detector concept studies that are being pursued worldwide.
