On behalf of the ALCPG and GDE, the Local Organizing Committee of the Fermilab International Linear Collider Workshop 2007 invites you to the October 2007 joint meeting of the American Linear Collider Physics Group and the International Linear Collider Global Design Effort. It will be held at Fermilab, near Chicago, Illinois, USA, from Monday October 22nd through Friday October 26th.

The Fermilab ALCPG07 meeting is next in the continuing series of North American workshops on the physics, detector, and accelerator issues of the future International Linear Collider.

The GDE Meeting at Fermilab during ALCPG07 will provide a critical juncture as it will formally establish the new ILC Engineering Design Phase Project Management. A focus of the meeting will be the consolidation of the engineering design phase plans, leading up to the successful publication of the Engineering Design Report (EDR) by mid 2010.

The main meeting will open and close with joint plenary sessions, with parallel working sessions held between.

The meeting hotel is the Pheasant Run Hotel in St. Charles, Illinois.

Free transportation between the meeting hotel and Fermilab will be provided morning and evening, each day of the meeting.

A block of rooms has been reserved to be available at a favorable price to ALCPG07 attendees.

An "Early Meeting Check-in" reception Sunday night will be held at the Pheasant Run Hotel.

Online Registration deadline was October 12.
Registration will be accepted at the meeting.
