Preliminary Physics Summary: Measurement of prompt $D^0$, $D^+$, $D^{*+}$ and $D_s^+$ production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
We report preliminary measurements of the production of prompt $D^0$, $D^+$, $D^{*+}$ and $D_s^+$ mesons in p-Pb collisions at the centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV per nucleon-nucleon collision. The production yields are measured at mid-rapidity ($-$0.96$<$$y_{\rm cms}$$<$0.04) as a function of transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T}$) in the intervals 0$<$$p_{\rm T}$$<$36 GeV/$c$ for $D^0$, 1$<$$p_{\rm T}$$<$36 GeV/$c$ for $D^+$ and $D^{*+}$, and 2$<$$p_{\rm T}$$<$24 GeV/$c$ for $D_s^+$ mesons.

Preliminary Physics Summary: Centrality dependence of inclusive J/$\psi$ production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=8.16$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
The inclusive J/$\psi$ production in p-Pb interactions at the centre-of mass energy per nucleon-nucleon collision $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=8.16$ TeV is studied with the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC. The measurement has been performed reconstructing J/$\psi$ mesons via their dimuon decay channel, in the centre-of-mass rapidities 2.03 $<$$y_{\rm cms}$$<$3.53 and $-$4.46 $<$$y_{\rm cms}$$<$$-$2.96, down to zero transverse momentum.

Preliminary Physics Summary: Deuteron and anti-deuteron production in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV and in Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
The mechanism which is behind the production of light (anti–)nuclei in ultra-relativistic collisions is one of the open questions in high-energy physics. We present the preliminary results obtained from the analyses of the (anti-)deuteron production for two different data samples collected in the LHC run 2: pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV and Pb–Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV.

The ALICE definition of primary particles /ALICE Collaboration
In this public note, we specify what we mean by the term ``primary particle''. The definition is motivated by what is in principle measurable by ALICE and that event generators and other such theoretical considerations must be able to reproduce the same requirements [...]

Addendum to JHEP 11 (2015) 205: Centrality dependence of high-$p_{\rm T}$ D-meson suppression in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 2.76TeV /ALICE Collaboration
This is an Addendum to the article JHEP 11 (2015) 205. The figures 3 (right), 4 (right) and 5 are updated with published results on non-prompt J/$\psi$-meson production from the CMS Collaboration, Eur. [...]

Preliminary Physics Summary: Measurement of D$^0$, D$^+$, D$^{*+}$ and D$_{\rm s}$ production in Pb-Pb collisions at ${\sqrt{s}_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
We report preliminary measurements of the production of prompt D$^0$, D$^+$, D$^{*+}$ and D$_{\rm s}^+$ mesons in Pb-Pb collisions in the centrality classes 0-10%, 30-50% and 60-80%, at the centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV per nucleon-nucleon collision. The production yields are measured at mid-rapidity ($|y|<0.5$) as a function of transverse momentum ($p_{\rm T}$) [...]

ALICE luminosity determination for pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
Luminosity determination in ALICE is based on visible cross sections measured in van der Meer scans. In 2012, the Large Hadron Collider provided proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV. [...]

Preliminary Physics Summary: Inclusive J/$\psi$ production at forward rapidity in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s}_{\rm {NN}} = 8.16$ TeV /ALICE Collaboration
The inclusive J/$\psi$ production has been studied in p-Pb interactions at the centre-of-mass energy per nucleon-nucleon collision $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=8.16$ TeV, using the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC. The J/$\psi$ meson is detected, via its decay to a muon pair, in the centre-of-mass rapidity intervals $2.03<y<3.53$ and $-4.46<y<-2.96$, where the positive $y$ refers to the p-going direction and the negative $y$ to the Pb-going direction [...]
