Abstract
The LHCf forward (LHCf) experiment measures the production cross sections of neutral particles emitted to the very forward region of an LHC interaction point in order to test the hadronic interaction models used in air-shower simulations. In this proceedings, we present the neutron and $\pi^0$ spectra measured in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV. In addition to them, many results will be delivered from currently on-going analyses of data obtained at LHCf-ATLAS common operation, and at the RHICf experiment with $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 510 GeV, as well as from future LHCf operations with $pp$ and $p\mathrm{O}$ collisions at LHC.
