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.
