 Measurement of azimuthal correlations of D mesons with charged particles in pp collisions at $\sqrt s =$ 13 TeV with ALICE at the LHC / Naik, Bharati (Indian Inst. Tech., Mumbai) The ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) detector at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is dedicated to the study of the properties of the hot and dense QCD matter (Quark–Gluon Plasma) produced in the nucleus-nucleus collisions at high energy. Heavy quarks (charm and beauty), having large masses, are produced in the hard-parton scattering in the early stages of the collision.

 The High Momentum Particle IDentification (HMPID) detector PID performance and its contribution to the ALICE physics program / Volpe, Giacomo (Bari U. ; INFN, Bari) /ALICE The ALICE apparatus is dedicated to study the properties of strongly interacting matter under extremely high temperature and energy density conditions. For this, enhanced particle identification (PID) capabilities are required. [...] 2017 - 4 p. - Published in : Nucl. Instrum. Methods Phys.

 Calibration of the ALICE PHOS calorimeter / Blau, Dmitry (Kurchatov Inst., Moscow) /ALICE The procedure for the energy calibration of the high granularity electromagnetic calorimeter PHOS of the ALICE experiment is presented. The methods used to perform the relative gain calibration, to estimate the geometrical alignment and the corresponding correction of the absolute energy scale, to evaluate the non-linearity correction coefficients and finally, to calculate the time-dependent calibration corrections, are discussed and illustrated by the PHOS performance in proton-proton (pp) collisions at .

 Coherent J/ψ photoproduction in ultra-peripheral Pb–Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC / Lavicka, Roman (Prague, Tech. U.) /ALICE There are several predictions for the behaviour of the gluon distribution in nuclei at small Bjorken-x and experimental data are needed to choose among them. This is achieved by measuring the cross section of processes specially sensitive to this parton distribution. [...] 2019 - 4 p. - Published in : J. Phys. : Conf.

 Hadronic shower properties in highly granular calorimeters with different absorbers / Chadeeva, Marina (Lebedev Inst.) /CALICE The CALICE collaboration develops and tests highly granular calorimeter prototypes for future collider experiments. The scintillator-SiPM-based prototypes of hadron calorimeters with steel and tungsten absorbers were exposed to test beams from the CERN SPS in 2007-2011. [...] 2019 - 6 p. - Published in : J.

 Overview of ALICE results on light flavour hadron production / Riabov, V G (St. Petersburg, INP ; Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) /ALICE Light flavour hadrons are copiously produced in hadronic and heavy-ion interactions and bring a wealth of information about properties of the produced medium and reaction dynamics. Having different masses, quark content and lifetimes, light flavour hadrons do not only serve as general observables in the soft sector, but also play an important role as high transverse momentum probes and signatures of the onset of collectivity in high-multiplicity collisions of small and large systems.

 Exploring hot QCD matter via direct photons at ALICE / Peresunko, D (Kurchatov Inst., Moscow) /ALICE We review ALICE results on direct photon production in pp, pA and AA collisions and compare them to predictions of NLO pQCD calculations, hydrodynamic, and transport models. In pp and pA collisions the measured direct photon yield is consistent with NLO pQCD calculations, scaled with the number of binary collisions. [...] 2019 - 6 p. - Published in : J. Phys. : Conf.

 Overview of ALICE results on ultra-peripheral collisions / Kryshen, Evgeny (St. Petersburg, INP) /ALICE Lead nuclei, accelerated at the LHC, are sources of strong electromagnetic fields which can be used to measure photon-induced interactions in a new kinematic regime. These interactions can be studied in ultra-peripheral p–Pb and Pb–Pb collisions where impact parameters are larger than the sum of nuclear radii and hadronic interactions are strongly suppressed.

 Recent results on hard probes in heavy-ion collisions from ALICE and LHCb / Hosokawa, Ritsuya (Tsukuba U. ; LPSC, Grenoble) /ALICE ; LHCb The heavy-ion physics program at the ALICE and LHCb collaborations aims at studying the Cold Nuclear Matter (CNM) effects and revealing the properties of Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) which is hot and dense QCD matter consisting of deconfined quarks and gluons produced under extremely high energy density. Hard probes, originate from the initial hard scatterings with large momentum transfer, are excellent tools to study heavy-ion collisions.
