Upgrade Plans

ALICE is performing a major upgrade during the Long Shutdown 2 that started end of 2018. The new ALICE will have significantly enhanced read-out capabilities and improved accuracy and efficiency in tracking particles and identifying the interaction vertex.

The LHC operated with lead-lead collisions for a total of about four months during Runs 1 and 2. For Runs 3 and 4, more than 10 times Pb-Pb collisions are expected with an integrated luminosity of about 13 inverse nanobarns.
