Hotel Les Trésoms, Annecy

Hotel Les Trésoms, Annecy

3, boulevard de la Corniche, Annecy, France
Description
The principle aims of the workshop are to:

Discuss mid-and longer-term improvements of the MP systems:
  • Review of the current operational experience with MP systems during the first running period (2010-2012).
  • Understanding the planned changes of MP equipment during LS1 and the consequences for operation after LS1.
  • Identifying areas where improvements are required.
  • Ensuring coherence between the different MP systems.
  • Identifying misses.
