On 1 March 1993, ALICE collaboration submitted a letter of intent to the CERN LHC Committee, proposing the construction of a heavy-ion experiment dedicated to the study of the physics of strongly interacting matter produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions. The letter of intent was the first official document in which the ALICE acronym for “A Large Ion Collider Experiment” was used.
