 Searching for the critical point of strongly interacting matter in nucleus-nucleus collisions at CERN SPS / Davis, Nikolaos (Cracow, INP) /NA61/SHINE Collaboration One of the primary goals of the NA61/SHINE experiment at CERN SPS is the detection of the critical point (CP) of strongly interacting matter. In the interests of this search, an energy (beam momentum 13A - 150$A$ GeV/$c$) and system size (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La) scan is being performed.A number of observables are being considered as possible signatures of the CP.

 Antiproton production cross sections in cosmic rays / Korsmeier, M (Turin U. ; INFN, Turin ; RWTH Aachen U.) The cosmic-ray flux of antiprotons is measured with unprecedented accuracy bythe space-borne particle spectrometers AMS-02. Its interpretation requires acorrect description of the dominant production process for antiprotons in ourGalaxy, namely, the interaction of cosmic-ray proton and helium with theinterstellar medium.

 Recent Results from NA61/SHINE / Pulawski, Szymon (Silesia U.) /NA61/SHINE Collaboration The research programme of the NA61 collaboration covers a wide range of hadronic physics in the CERN SPS energy range, encompassesing measurements of hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus as well as nucleus-nucleus collisions. The latter are analysed to better understand the properties of hot and dense nuclear matter.

 Directed flow measurement in Pb+Pb collisions at $P_{lab}$ = 13A GeV/c collected with NA61/SHINE at SPS / Kashirin, E (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst. ; Moscow, INR) ; Selyuzhenkov, I (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst. ; Darmstadt, GSI) ; Golosov, O (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) ; Klochkov, V (U. Tubingen ; Frankfurt U.) /NA61/Shine Collaboration We present results of directed flow measurements in Pb+Pb collisions at beam momentum pbeam = 13A GeV/c recorded at NA61/Shine in 2016. Directed flow is measured relative to the symmetry plane of projectile spectators. [...] 2020 - 7 p. - Published in : J. Phys.: Conf.

 Anisotropic flow measured in Pb-Pb collisions with the NA49 and NA61/SHINE experiments at CERN SPS / Golosov, Oleg (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) ; Klochkov, Viktor (Darmstadt, GSI ; Frankfurt U.) ; Kashirin, Evgeny (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) ; Selyuzhenkov, Ilya (Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst. ; Darmstadt, GSI) Results are presented for directed flow v 1 of negatively charged pions measured relative to the spectator plane in Pb+Pb collisions at the beam energy 40A GeV recorded by the NA49 experiment at CERN. The measurements were performed as a function of rapidity and transverse momentum in two classes of collision centrality. [...] 2019 - 6 p. - Published in : J. Phys.: Conf.

 Convolutional Neural Network for Centrality Determination in Fixed Target Experiments / Seryakov, A (St. Petersburg State U.) ; Uzhva, D (St. Petersburg State U.) Fixed target experiments have an unique possibility to measure centrality of colliding systems by hadronic calorimeters on the beam line. This is usually achieved by the detection of all forward nucleon spectators and accomplishes fluctuation and correlation measures with lower biases than in collider experiments.
