The new issue of ALICE Matters is now on line

Posted By Administration, 22 August 2016

In this issue of ALICE Matters, you can read following: 

Central shifts in the ALICE Run Control Centre
Crucial for the experiment, the Data Quality Monitoring (DQM) prevents us from recording bad or low-quality data by alarming the DQM shifter in the Control Centre of any potential problem with the raw data which may occur.

The ALICE Juniors
The ALICE juniors form a community of people in the beginning of their career. They conduct a big part of the day-to-day data analysis, they perform service tasks, detector calibration and development, thus contributing to the smooth and efficient operation of the experiment.

The new issue of ALICE Matters is on line

Posted By Administration, 04 April 2016

In this issue of ALICE Matters, you can read following:

News from the ALICE Run Control Centre
On March 25 the first proton beams for 2016 started circulating in the LHC, which marked the official end of the 13-week long year-end technical stop. The next four weeks are dedicated to beam commissioning, which will be followed by a ramp-up in intensity by increasing the number of protons per bunch, until the target intensity is reached. Stable beams at 13 TeV are expected around the end of April.

New interactive window at the ALICE Run Control Centre
One of the best advantages of the interactive window is the possibility to show visitors what lies 52 metres below their feet and what hides behind the heavy red magnet doors.

New issue of ALICE Matters - January 2016

Posted By Administration, 19 January 2016
Updated: 02 February 2016
In this issue of ALICE Matters, you can read following:

While ALICE is sleeping
In order for the LHC and all the experiments to work properly throughout the year, certain changes need to be done. The right time for that is the year-end technical stop, or YETS.
News from the ALICE Collaboration board
During the last Collaboration board, which took place on the 18 December, the proposal to change the duration of the mandates of elected members of the collaboration was accepted. The mandates of the Spokesperson, the Chair of the Collaboration board and all coordinators (except the Offline, Technical and Finance coordinators), are now going to last for three years and will be non-renewable.
