Workshops and Trainings

Workshops (Mon 03 June)

The Monday workshops create a platform for presentation and discussion of specific topics in a more intimate setting, in more depth and with less time constraints than during plenary sessions.

Workshop organizers are responsible for managing their event and its agenda; please contact them directly on how to contribute and with other questions.

The workshops will be giving short reports in a plenary session. We will try to make the workshop materials available on this website.

The two morning workshops (Web Services and Timing) will be run in parallel.

Web Services (morning)

Lana Abadie will host a workshop about web service architectures on top of EPICS, current approaches and future directions.

This workshop focuses on web applications used to view EPICS data. Web applications are becoming trendy and there is a need to display live data to remote participants. The idea is to collect feedback, learn about existing architectures and see if there is room for a common approach and collaboration on that topic.

Timing (morning)

Jukka Pietarinen will organize a Timing workshop, focusing on the MRF timing system and its applications.

Motion Control (afternoon)

Torsten Bögershausen will hold a workshop on Motion Control, covering motors (stepper, piezo, servo), motor controllers and motion control applications.

Tentative agenda.

Trainings/Demonstrations (Fri 07 June)

The training and demonstration sessions on Friday will make sure you'll get out of this week a lot smarter and with your head full of bright new ideas and applications.


The CS-Studio and EPICS Java developers (contact: Kay-Uwe Kasemir) will give an introduction to using EPICS 7, in a setup that uses the latest generation of CS-Studio and areaDetector-based image processing.

This is a hands-on training: a virtual machine with the complete demonstration setup is available for download (~5GB); please follow the instructions.


Ulrik Pedersen and Gary Yendell (Diamond) will demonstrate how to set up and operate image acquisition systems using the areaDetector framework.
