Florian Jonas and Hannah Bossi talk about their experience as CERN summer students in the ALICE experiment.

Florian and Hannah are now very good friends, even though they met only a couple of months ago in their office at CERN, where they sit one next to the other. Coming from Germany and the US respectively, they are participating in the CERN summer student programme developing a project in ALICE.

The summer ALICE week, one of the four yearly weeks of general meetings organized by the experiment, has become since a few years an occasion for celebrations. Besides being a fruitful gathering in which the latest data analysis and detector development work is reviewed, it includes special social events.

Held at CERN from 24 to 28 July 2017, this ALICE week has included a big party, a soccer tournament, as well as the 2016 PhD thesis award ceremony.
