LHCf is a collider experiment dedicated to cosmic-ray physics. It measures the energy spectrum of very forward particles generated in pp collisions in LHC. Its aim is to minimize systematic errors in air-shower simulations used in ultra-high-energy cosmic-ray experiments like the Pierre Auger Observatory. In this paper we briefly summarize the current status of the experiment: DAQ, analyses, and works for foreseen detector upgrade.
