The Large Hadron Collider recently completed its Run-2 operation period (2015–2018), which delivered an integrated luminosity of 156 fb$^{−1}$ at the centre-of-mass proton-proton collision energy of 13 TeV. This marked 10 years of successful operation of the ATLAS Semiconductor Tracker, which operated during Run 2 with instantaneous luminosity and pileup conditions that were far in excess of what the SCT was originally designed to meet. The first significant effects of radiation damage in the SCT were also observed during Run 2. The SCT operations, performance and radiation damage studies were published as a paper. This document summarises the operational experience, challenges and performance of the SCT during Run 2, and Run-3 operation prospects with a focus on the impact and mitigation of radiation damage effects.
