The 17th edition of the International Conference on Strangeness in Quark Matter (SQM 2017) has just kicked off in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The event, which is one of the two key annual appointments for the ALICE collaboration, will focus on new experimental and theoretical developments on the role of strange and heavy-flavour quarks in high-energy heavy-ion collisions and in astrophysical phenomena.

ALICE will participate with 19 talks in parallel sessions and 2 in plenary ones. Eight additional presentations will be delivered by ALICE Collaborators during plenary sessions.

An overview of the Conference will be published in the next issue of the ALICE Matters newsletter.
