ILD will document its current development and the work which has happened since writing the technical design report (detector DBD) in a document called the ILD Design Report (IDR). On these pages you can find further information on the document, find the latest version of the document, etc.

Technically the IDR ist stored in a svn repository at DESY. In addition mirrors of the IDR are available on the overleaf system, to make the editing and working with the system easier. Note that both systems are not automatically synchronised. About once a day such synchronisation does happen.

To view the project in overleaf please use the following link: Overleaf link

If you need write access to the overleaf please request this here

If you want to work with the svn repository instead, plese read the following instructions:

  • To view the document in a browser, please click here
  • You will be prompted for a username: ILDReader <at>, password is ILD2018 (you need to use the full e-mail as user name)
  • If you need write access to the repository, please request this here


6.7.2018: Between 15.7.2018 and 3.8.3018 there will be delays in the synchronisation between svn and overleaf.

How to work with the IDR:

It is recommended that you use the overlaef overleaf system for working on the latex source. This provides the simplest and most robust way to edit the document. Changes done by other people are automatically merged and synchronised.

Overleaf however does require a constant internet connection, as it works with a server in the background. If you want to work offline you can either use the svn repository, or pull a copy of the relevent files from overleaf. Make sure you upload your changes back into the system - either on svn, or on overleaf. Please note that there will be some delay between uploading new contributions to the svn, and your changes becoming visible on overleaf.
