Acknowledgements

The CLIC project plans have recently been summarized in several papers as input to the European Strategy for Particle Physics Update process (see related links for a full overview). The author gratefully acknowledges all contributors, authors and editors to these publications, providing the effort, technical and scientific substance summarized above. The selection of key design criteria to emphasize as important for CLIC, as well as similar accelerator projects, is biased by the author’s own view.
