Liquid argon (LAr) sampling calorimeters are employed by ATLAS for all electromagnetic
calorimetry in the pseudo-rapidity region |η| < 3.2, and for hadronic and forward
calorimetry in the region from |η| = 1.5 to |η| = 4.9. In the first LHC run a total luminosity of
27 fb$^{−1}$ has been collected at center-of-mass energies of 7-8 TeV. After detector consolidation
during a long shutdown, Run-2 started in 2015 and about 150fb$^{−1}$ of data at a center-of-mass
energy of 13 TeV was recorded. With the end of Run-2 in 2018 a multi-year shutdown for the
Phase-I detector upgrades was begun.
As part of the Phase-I upgrade, new trigger readout electronics of the ATLAS Liquid-Argon
Calorimeter have been developed. Installation began at the start of the LHC shut down in
2019 and is expected to be completed in 2020. A commissioning campaign is underway in
order to realize the capabilities of the new, higher granularity and higher precision level-1
trigger hardware in Run-3 data taking. This contribution will give an overview of the new
trigger readout commissioning, as well as the preparations for Run-3 detector operation and
changes in the monitoring and data quality procedures to cope with the increased pileup.
