  GUINEA-PIG++ is a newly developed object-oriented version of the Linear Collider beam-beam simulation program GUINEA-PIG. The main goals of this project are to provide a reliable, modular, documented and versatile framework enabling convenient implementation of new features and functionalities. Examples of improvements described in this paper are an easy interface to study the impact of electromagnetic effects on Bhabha event selections, a treatment of spin depolarization effects, automatic consistency checks and adjustments of internal computational parameters, upgraded input/output and user interface, an optimised setup for massive production on distributed computing GRIDs. A possible setup to perform fast parallelised computations is also discussed.

An interaction region with head-on collisions is considered as an alternative to the baseline ILC configuration. Progress in the final focus optics design includes engineered large bore superconducting final doublet magnets and their 3D magnetic integration in the detector solenoids. Progress on the beam separation optics is based on technical designs of electrostatic separator and special extraction quadripoles. The spent beam extraction is realized by a staged collimation scheme relying on realistic collimators. The impact on the detector background is estimated. The possibility of technical tests of the most challenging components is investigated.

  A way to determine luminosity at the International Linear Collider (ILC) is to measure the Bhabha event rate in a finely segmented calorimeter (LumiCal) at very low polar angles in the very forward region of the detector. An absolute precision between 10-4 and 10-3 is needed for a number of key physics measurements. Besides theoretical uncertainties on the Bhabha cross section and experimental errors when identifying Bhabha events in the LumiCal, the very strong beam-beam space charge effects which characterise the ILC e+e- collisions lead to a major bias in the counting rate, which drastically limits the luminosity measurement if uncorrected. In this paper, Bhabha event samples produced with the BHLUMI generator are used in the context of the GUINEA-PIG beam-beam simulation to study how beamstrahlung radiation and electromagnetic deflections affect the proposed experimental selections. A corrective method based on determining the luminosity spectrum within the LumiCal is suggested to minimise the resulting errors. The expected residual uncertainty after correction is estimated based on simulations with realistic beam conditions.
