EPICS meetings provide a chance for developers and managers from the various different sites to come together and discuss their work in progress and make plans for the future. They give a chance to see what is being done at other laboratories, and to review the specifications for new tools or enhancements to existing ones in order to maximize their usefulness to the whole community and avoid duplication of effort.

This is a Virtual Conference:

  • Event will be live during the week from Monday to Thursday,
    from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM  CET.
  • From Tuesday to Friday, there will be a Q&A session
    from 10 AM – 11 AM CET for the themes of the day before.

The conference will be broadcast via BlueJeans Events. Please click here to check your system requirements to ensure you are able to join this event: BlueJeans Event instructions for Attendees

The conference was originally intended as a "normal" EPICS Collaboration Meeting in September 2020. It was to take place on the campus of the Max Planck Society (MPS) in Golm (near Potsdam) at the Albert Einstein Institute (LIGO member). Satellite meetings at the Fritz Haber Institute (Free Electron Laser) and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion at the Berlin Synchrotron (BESSY, HZB) were planned. A visit to the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Greifswald (Wendelstein experiment) was planned. Unfortunately Covid-19 put a spoke in our wheel.

To ensure the usual liveliness of our meetings, we have decided that we want to present all lectures live. Unfortunately, we can not serve all time zones perfectly. The optimal time for us was 2pm - 6pm (UTC!).

We will probably activate the registration on September 15. For all presenters (also Lightning Talks (short talks, up to 5 minutes)) a registration is necessary. For all others, a registration is required to be able to distribute short term information about the event.

Troubleshooting for presenters: In case of problems with the presenter interface and/or sharing screen, audio etc. the test event is available for trouble shooting during the real event. Here you can get help
