 Open charm measurements at CERN SPS energies in the NA61/SHINE experiment - status and plans / Merzlaya, Anastasia (St. Petersburg State U.) /Na61/Shine Collaboration The study of open charm meson production provides an efficient tool for detailed investigations of the properties of hot and dense matter formed in nucleus-nucleus collisions. In particular, charm mesons are of vivid interest in the context of the phase-transition between confined hadronic matter and the quark-gluon plasma.

 Forward hadron calorimeter (PSD) of NA61/SHINE for heavy ion studies and its upgrade for experiments beyond 2020 / Morozov, Sergey (Moscow, INR ; Moscow Phys. Eng. Inst.) ; Guber, Fedor (Moscow, INR) ; Ivashkin, Alexander (Moscow, INR) ; Golubeva, Marina (Moscow, INR) /Na61/Shine Collaboration The Projectile Spectator Detector (PSD) is a segmented modular hadron calorimeter currently used in the NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS. The PSD is used for collision centrality determination as well as for estimation of the event plane orientation in nucleus-nucleus collisions.

 First NA61/SHINE results on Bose-Einstein correlation function / Porfy, Barnabas (Eotvos U.) /Na61/Shine Collaboration One of the main goals of NA61/SHINE is the investigation of the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter. NA61/SHINE observes collisions of various nuclei at different energies, allowing to study the same phenomena and observables in vastly different conditions.

 Recent measurements of identified hadron spectra and multiplicities in Ar+Sc and Be+Be collisions at SPS energies / Lewicki, Maciej P (Wroclaw U.) /NA61/SHINE Collaboration NA61/SHINE is a fixed target experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron. The main goals of the experiment are to discover the critical point of strongly interacting matter and to study the properties of the onset of deconfinement.

 Results from a Pilot Study on the Measurement of Nuclear Fragmentation with NA61/SHINE at the CERN SPS: $^{11}\text{C}$ Production in $\text{C+p}$ Interactions at 13.5 A GeV/c / Amin, Neeraj (KIT, Karlsruhe) /NA61/SHINE Collaboration We report the analysis of data taken during a pilot run in 2018 to study the feasibility of nuclear fragmentation measurements with the NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS. These nuclear reactions are important for the interpretation of secondary cosmic-ray nuclei production (Li, Be, and B) in the Galaxy.

 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.
