Hello, and welcome to this, the third issue of ALICE Matters.
A screenshot from the Digital Graffiti video, which premiers in this fortnight's issue
In this issue: we learn why lead ions are being collided in the Large Hadron Collider, report the latest from the pilot of ALICE’s masterclass exercise, interview Mateusz Ploskon and premier ‘Digital Graffiti’, a special art video which uses collisions from the ALICE experiment.
We also report on the works being undertaken on the users’ office, advice ALICE members of the new requirements for the French Protocole d'accueil, and also unveil the ALICE 2011 Calendar.
As usual, Matters is open for pitches, ideas and submissions – so if you have something to say or share – please do get in touch.
Editor, ALICE Matters
