Kenta Shigaki (Hiroshima Univ.), Taku Gunji (CNS Tokyo) and Tatsuya Chujo (Tsujkuba Univ.) recently wrote an article reviewing the first ALICE results obtained following the heavy-ion runs at the LHC.

Their article was published in one of the latest issues of “High Energy News” (Vol. 32, p.6-15, Number 1, April/May/June 2013) a physics magazine well known to the high energy physics community in Japan. In addition an ALICE event display was chosen for the cover of this issue, reflecting the importance of the collaboration between Japanese institutes and ALICE.


An ALICE event display appeared on the cover of HEP News magazine in Japan.

The article summarizes recent results from ALICE based on the previous lead-lead runs while they also covered the results on the proton-lead run, which has been taken in 2012 and 2013.

As a part of outreach activity of Japan, ALICE Japanese group web site (in Japanese only) has been made and was released in fall 2012. http://alice-j.org


A snapshot of the new ALICE-Japan public webpages.

The new webpage explains the physics goals and detectors of ALICE, and the latest news and materials on ALICE are archived.

This site is maintained by T. Chujo (Tsukuba), outreach representative of the ALICE-Japan team.
