Today, 15.6.2017, at the FNSPE CTU in Prague the meeting of SAB of infrastructure BNL-CZ was held. The recent activities and future plans of STAR, PHENIX, sPHENIX and phenomenology conducted at CTU in Prague, CU in Prague and NPI CAS were presented. The members of SAB are prof. Dr. Alberica Toia (IKF Goethe-Universität), prof. RNDr. Pavel Cejnar, DSc.(CU in Prague) and doc. Mgr. Alexander Kupčo, Ph.D.(Institute of Physics CAS). The physics program of the infrastructure and services provided to the users of BNL-CZ were recognized as very important and very satisfactory.
During the past weeks NPI ASCR and FNSPE CTU in Prague pariticipated in data collections of polarized proton collisions.

Winter School of Theoretical Physics in Karpacz is a long-standing tradition at the University of Wroclaw. This year was the main topic "Understanding the Origin of Matter from QCD" and took place in karpacz, Poland on 26.2 - 4.3. Several students from FNSPE participated in this school namely Ing. David Horák, Ing. Lukáš Kramárik, Bc. Jakub Kvapil, Bc. Jakub Cimerman, Bc. Peter Pribeli, Bc. Josef Uchytil, Bc. Zuzana Gajdošová and Bc. Radka Sochorová. David, Lukáš and Jakub presented their posters and Jakub won the "Best experimental poster" award.

On 2.12, in the context of familiarizing the future particle physicists with acceleration technologies, Dr. Jaroslav Bielčík made a guided tour to the Institute of Nuclear Physics, partner institutions in BNL-CZ. CTU students visited the cyclotron and tandetron accelerators.
Quark Matter 2017 is one of the largest conference on ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions in the world which took place in Chicago, USA on 6-11 February. Many of our students and employees presented their up to date research progress.
