I am spending a few days in Aix Les Bains, a pleasant lakeside resort in the French southwest, to follow the works of the second ECFA workshop
titled "High-Luminosity LHC". ECFA stands for "European Committee for
Future Accelerators" but this particular workshop is indeed centred on
the future of the LHC, despite the fact that there are at present at
least half a dozen international efforts toward the design of more
powerful hadron colliders, more precise linear electron-positron
colliders, or still other solutions.
