The ALICE experiment has been designed to study strong interactions at the unprecedented energies provided by the world’s most powerful accelerator: the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. After three years of data taking, ALICE has generated a wealth of results addressing soft and semi-hard QCD questions in proton-proton collisions. Yet, the most relevant results have been obtained with Heavy-Ions, the core Physics program of the experiment. The ALICE results are shedding new light on the remarkable properties of strongly interacting matter at extreme densities and temperatures, the highest ever studied experimentally. Very intriguing results have also been published also from the run with proton against lead. First results are now coming from the recently started 13 TeV run.
The experiment has also a very exciting long term future: based on what has been learnt so far, a major upgrade of the experiment has been proposed, which will allow a detailed quantitative study of the properties of the Quark Gluon Plasma at the LHC: thanks to the upgrade, ALICE will be able to analyze, with improved detail, one thousand times the amount of data collected so far. The Upgrade program progresses in parallel with data taking and analysis, making this a particularly rich moment for the whole experiment.
