Charge for WWS LC Detector R&D Panel, 13-January-2005

1. Create and maintain a register of ongoing R&D programs relevant for LC experiments, which should include R&D goals and schedules, names of participating institutions and their responsibilities, relevant publications, level of support, and web-links to current work. The R&D programs should include not only those required for the proposed detector concepts, but also those needed for measurements of luminosity, energy, and polarization (LEP)and those associated with the masking system, possible beam EMI, and other areas which may a overlap with MDI. The registration of such MDI projects should be performed jointly with the MDI panel. Maintain a central web repository for this information, and update it regularly.

2. Survey the R&D relevant for LC experiments. This survey should review the R&D needs of all candidate detector concepts, LEP measurements, and relevant MDI issues as discussed above. It should strive to identify the critical R&D items which affect the viability of each concept and uncover any needed R&D which is not being pursued. In addition, it should encompass the existing R&D efforts, assess the relevance of these efforts to the various detector concepts and LEP or MDI needs, and flag areas needing more attention. Document this survey before August, 2005.

3. Critically review the Status of R&D Relevant for LC experiments. An important input for this review will be the Spring 2006 Detector Outlines, which will be requested from each of the current design studies by the World Wide Study Organizing Committee. Each outline will include an introduction to the detector concept, a description of the detector, its expected performance, subsystem technology selections or options, status of ongoing studies, and a list of R&D needed. Additional input will come from reassessing the ongoing R&D efforts with respect to relevance and importance, current level of effort, scheduled project completion times, duplication of effort, and additional resources required. Document this review by Summer, 2006.

4. Register the regional review processes for LC detector R&D. In consultation with the ILCSC and the GDE, facilitate review for R&D proposals which are not easily incorporated into these existing review structures.

5. Continue these activities, and whatever further activities are judged important to prepare needed R&D for LC detectors, until a global lab assumes these responsibilities.

Additional Charge for the WWS LC Detector R&D Panel, 30-September-2005

At the request of the chair of the ILCSC:

Produce a written report by the end of 2005 which identifies and prioritises the topics and areas of detector R&D which need immediate support. Inputs to this should be collected both from the detector concept teams and from all the detector R&D collaborations and groups interested, via their contact persons with the Detector R&D Panel. Individual proposals should not be identified. This report will initially be submitted to the WWS-OC, and then passed to the ILCSC.
