We get to know another of our new collaborating institutions in the February 2018 edition of the STAR Newsletter. Contributions also
focus on recent activities surrounding Run 18, from commissioning new
detectors to blinding analysis procedures, as well as recapping discussions
on these topics at the recent STAR Collaboration Meeting.
