      Upgrade of the NA61/SHINE experiment 1h 15m

      NA61/SHINE is a fixed target experiment located in the North Area of the CERN SPS accelerator. The main goal of the NA61/SHINE after Long Shutdown 2 at CERN (LS2, 2019-2021) is to measure open charm production in Pb+Pb interactions at SPS energies. To accomplish this, NA61/SHINE detection system undergoes a major hardware upgrade. The main purpose of the upgrade is to increase the readout rate up to 1 kHz and increase acceptance in the high density tracks environment. In this seminar I will discuss physics prospects for NA61/SHINE beyond LS2, I will also present status and plans of the upgrade.
