Welcome to SuperB
We are an international enterprise aiming at the construction of a very high luminosity asymmetric e+e- flavour factory.
The physics studies possible at such a machine will provide a uniquely important source of information about the details
of the new physics uncovered at hadron colliders in the coming decade. A heavy flavour factory such as SuperB will
be a partner, together with the LHC and eventually the ILC, in ascertaining exactly what kind of new physics has been found.
The management team for the construction of the SuperB accelerator was defined during the last collaboration meeting, held in late March at the National Laboratories of Frascati. SuperB is the core of the Cabibbolab, the international centre for fundamental and applied physics, sponsored by the National Institute of Physics Nuclear and University of Rome Tor Vergata. Researchers of international level and some of the best experts in particle accelerators in Italy and worldwide were appointed to the main responsibilities for the construction of the machine, which design has been developed since the year 2005 thanks to different countries' skills and resources. They were designated team's leaders, Walter Scandale, professor at the Université de Paris-Sud 11, director for the technology infrastructures, and Alessandro Variola from the LAL laboratory of Orsay (France), who was appointed head of the accelerator's department. Fifteen of the 20 departments heads of the team originates from the accelerators group of the National Laboratories of Frascati and figure among the best experts of accelerators in the world.
Dear colleague, As you probably know, the Italian government has approved in May 2011 an ambitious project, the SuperB factory. This e+e- collider with its extremly high targeted luminosity (100 times more than previously achieved) will bring from 2016 onwards crucial information about the physics beyond the standard model that is likely to be discovered soon at the LHC. The SuperB project is happy to invite you to the SuperB Information Day which will be held in Strasbourg on September 23, 2011. http://indico.in2p3.fr/event/StrasbourgSuperB During this event, many details about the international SuperB project will be given to all interested people. We hope you will come to learn the latest news about this major European project, part of the European Roadmap for Particle Physics, either by curiosity or if you are potentially interested to benefit from the numerous and exciting opportunities to join the project. The following aspects will be presented: . the SuperB physics program, . the global project status, . the machine design, . the SuperB detector, . computing aspects, . the current contributions from some already participating countries.
The SuperB Factory, a major international research centre for fundamental and applied physics will be built on the campus of the University of Rome 'Tor Vergata'. The project proposed by the INFN is the first on the list of the 14 flagship projects of the National Research Plan of the Italian Ministry for Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). The announcement was made last week by Roberto Petronzio, President of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics. 300 physicists from all over the world gathered in Elba island (Italy) for the kick-off meeting of SuperB, which marked a crucial milestone on the road towards realization of the accelerator. The project involves the construction of a large underground electron-positron collider which will occupy an area of approximately 30 hectares on the University of Rome 'Tor Vergata' campus and be closely linked to the INFN Frascati National Laboratories, located nearby. The SuperB, which will ultimately cost few hundred million euros, obtained funding approval for 250 million euros in the Italian government's CIPE Economic Planning Document.
