LHC Experiments Committee

The LHCC was set up after the March 1992 meeting in Evian-les-Bains, where Expressions of Interest were presented. Intensive interaction between the Committee and the Collaborations is required in order to converge on the detector designs, and to review the construction, installation and commissioning of the experiments. Like other experiment committees, the LHCC makes recommendations to the CERN Research Board.

The LHCC also reviews the World LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) Project. The latter makes available to the LHCC for review documents and reports from the project, including its Technical Design Report.

The LHCC is also responsible for reviewing the remaining detector R&D projects (RD39, RD42, RD50, RD51, RD52 and RD53).

Upgrade Cost Group (UCG)

The Upgrade Cost Group (UCG) reviews the CORE cost of Technical Design Reports (TDR). Its mandate and composition can be found here: UCG Mandate and Composition (pdf). The UCG reports to the Research Board via the LHCC Chairman.The reports can be found in CDS via this link.

Chairperson: A.J.S. Smith (Princeton, USA)

Phase-II Upgrade Groups (P2UG)

The Phase-II Upgrade Groups (P2UG) monitor the execution of the Phase II upgrade projects, verifying the technical progress, tracking the milestones, and ensuring the level of effort and managerial organization are adequate. Their mandate and composition can be found here (url).
