Events visualisation in ALICE - current status and strategy for Run 3

Jeremi Niedziela for the ALICE Collaboration

A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) is one of the four big experiments running at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which focuses on the study of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) being produced in heavy-ion collisions.

The ALICE Event Visualisation Environment (AliEVE) is a tool allowing to draw an interactive 3D model of the detector’s geometry and a graphical representation of the data.
In addition, together with the online reconstruction module, it provides important quality monitoring of the recorded data. As a consequence it is in permanent use in the ALICE Run Control Center.

Total Event Display (TEV) is another visualisation tool recently developed by the CERN Media Lab and that can be used for all LHC experiments. It can be easily deployed on any platform, including web and mobile platforms. Integration with ALICE has already progressed well and will continue.

The current status of both solutions will be presented, as well as their numerous usages in ALICE. Finally an outlook of the strategy for Run 3 will be given showing how both AliEVE and TEV will be adapted to fit the ALICE O2 project.
