Scope of the Workshop

The workshop will be held at the Ringberg Castle, a conference site of the Max-Planck-Society, overlooking Lake Tegernsee in the Bavarian Alps. There will be about two and a half days for presentations and discussions. On top of that, the many rooms at Ringberg Castle give very nice opportunities to meet informally and discuss the technical details in smaller groups while having one or the other glass of good wine.

The aim of the workshop is to bring  the ILC vertex community together and to have enough time to speak about the challenges and opportunities at the ILC in more detail. Working together, sharing experiences, and tackling the common problems and technology independent questions as a community is vital for the project which now goes into a new phase for the years to come.

Plenary presentations held by invited experts in the field will cover the topics:
The workshop should provide an in-depth overview of the project status and give a basis for the compilation of a "White Paper" which will be used as a Backup Document of the project.
