Abstract content

The status and prospects for BESIII (BEijing Spectrometer III) is presented. It has been running stably since 2009 on the BEPCII (Beijing Electron Positron Collider II) machine. Upgrade plans for its sub-detectors have been proposed and the upgrade is undergoing. The major upgrade comes from the drift chamber and the time of flight counter. The other sub-detectors show good status and no upgrade are needed. Given the current status and upgrade plan of the BESIII detectors, it's foreseen that the BESIII is able to work for 8~10 years from now.
