A Large Ion CERN Experiment (ALICE) assembly and installation is close to completion. The commissioning of the detector with cosmic data is in the full swing. The next step is the first data with LHC. The ALICE first physics goals - both in proton-proton and ion-ion collisions will be presented. The role of UK in ALICE programme will be explained.
The experimental particle physics seminar series invites speakers from all over Europe to discuss the latest developments at the LHC, accelerator and non-accelerator based neutrino physics, hardware R&D and astroparticle physics. .
