by Panos Charitos. Published: 14 October 2013

The SFT and the Education Group at CERN have joined forces to create a new application for CERN. The application gives to the users real time information on the status of the LHC and live event displays from the four experiments: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb. The team that works on developing this application is planning to include information about all CERN experiments and bring to them the latest news and results.

Workshop on Heavy Flavor Correlations in Nuclear Collisions

by Panos Charitos. Published: 15 October 2013

In the beginning of October, a workshop on heavy flavor correlations in nuclear collisions was held by the Institute of Physics and Technology in Bergen, a town located on the west coast of Norway. The workshop aimed to build an exchange platform for theorists and experimentalists working in the domain of heavy-flavor correlations in nuclear collisions in order to explore the potentials and challenges of heavy-flavor correlation observables from proton-proton to heavy-ion collisions.

A souvenir from ALICE

The ALICE shop expanded for the Open Days that took place on the 28 and 29 September. Visitors and collaboration members have discovered the new items of the shop. In addition to the mugs, books, magnets or paperweights let you be tempted by the new T-shirts, the 2014 calendar, the caps and the neckbands. Stamped with the new ALICE logo, the items will not leave you indifferent.

No you are not dreaming, the new tee shirts have a physics power… they make you happy.

The Papercraft of ALICE

by Lucile HERVET . Published: 18 October 2013

Designed and made by Tiziano Virgili, the papercraft is a good way for children and adults to discover the ALICE experiment.

Why have you created the papercraft?

At the beginning I had created the papercraft for my personal fun. Then I understood that it could be useful for ALICE. To make the detector and the experiment known to a larger public, in an unusual way.

During the Open Days you had an exhibition stand, did it work well ?
