 Simulation of radiation-induced defects / Peltola, Timo (Helsinki Inst. of Phys.) Mainly due to their outstanding performance the position sensitive silicon detectors are widely used in the tracking systems of High Energy Physics experiments such as the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb at LHC, the world's largest particle physics accelerator at CERN, Geneva.

 Forward-central two-particle correlations in p--Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC / Oh, Saehanseul (Yale U.) We present the results of measurements of two-particle angular correlations between trigger particles reconstructed in the ALICE Forward Muon Spectrometer ($-4.0 < \eta < -2.5$) and associated particles reconstructed in the central barrel detectors ($|\eta| < 1.0$) in p--Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV.

 Recent results on two-particle correlations in ALICE / Ohlson, Alice (CERN) The discovery of correlations between particles separated by several units of pseudorapidity in high-multiplicity pp and p-Pb collisions, reminiscent of structures observed in Pb-Pb collisions, was a challenge to traditional ideas about collectivity in heavy ion collisions.
