Papers currently open for comments can be inspected using the link: Paper in Collaboration Review (Open for Comments).

NEWS FROM POINT 2

  • pp data taking at reference energy, 0.7 Billion INEL events collected.
     
  • Sucessfull start of Heavy Ion commissioning. Set-up and collimation studies ongoing.
     
  • ALICE succesfully delivered lumi with ZDC and FIT, 160 Hz of hadronic interaction rate. ZDC and FIT commissioning and time alignement. EMCAL and PHS trigger conifguration commissioning.
     
  • First Heavy Ion Stable Beam is expected between Sunday 24 and Monday 25 September, the exact start time will be announced on short notice depending on the advancement of ion commissioning.
     
  • ALICE Run Manager (18 Sep - 1 Oct 2023):  Cristian Andrei:

    Cristian Andrei is a physicist from Bucharest NIPNE. He is a specialist in pion, kaon, and proton production in high multiplicity pp events, studying the dependency of their production as a function of charged particle multiplicity and event shape. He is an active member of the PWG-LF and has made significant contributions and has been member of several analysis and paper review committees (ARC, IRC). Cristian has substantial experience in data taking and ALICE operation at P2. Since 2016, he has taken up all central shifter positions: ECS, DCS, QC and SL. He has experience operating ALICE during the previous heavy ion run period and was a Run Manager in 2018.

    Cristian will face an incredible challenge as he will be in charge of the first RUN 3 Heavy Ion data taking. The ion run is scheduled after a break of 10 weeks (with only 17 hours of stable beam). During this time, major components were deployed, integrated, and validated with cosmics, synthetic and replay data.

    To make sure we collect a beautiful heavy ion data sample, Cristian, like all Run Managers before him, knows he can count on the incredible spirit of all experts of P2.

JUNIOR'S CORNER

Message from Junior representatives (Carolina, Florian, Luca):

  • LHC Early Career Mentoring Program: Application for mentors and mentees is now open. Please register here.. Detailed information about the program can be found here. In case of questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us: alice-junior-reps@cern.ch

    The LHC Early Career Mentoring Program is organised jointly by the representatives of early career scientists in each of the four large LHC experiments and is open to all members of any CERN experiment.

    The program aims at connecting early career scientists, who have well-defined professional goals, with experienced researchers, who are willing to guide a young scientist along their path and pass along part of their knowledge, experience, and insights in order to help them achieve their short- and long-term goals. Both mentors and mentees from past editions of the program have largely profited from their participation.

     
  • Guidelines for ALICE Thesis Video: we like to propose a ~3 min video summarizing the key results of PhD thesis. Guidelines are in the Juniors link. As an example:  Thesis video by Hannah Bossi is in the CDS link.
