Abstract: The CALICE prototype for a Si-W electromagnetic calorimeter has been testedin large scale test beams. Several million events with electrons and hadrons ofdifferent energies and impact angles have been recorded. The energy resolutionhas been measured to be 16.6 +- 0.1%-sqrtEGeV for the stochastic and 1.1+- 0.1% for the constant term with a linearity within the 1% level. The nextstep will be the construction of a large scale prototype which will takerealistic experimental costraints into account. This module will naturallybenefit from the experience gained with the first prototype.
