Group Photo at Spring 2017 EPICS Collaboration Meeting

The Spring 2017 EPICS Collaboration Meeting was held by Research Reactor Institute, Kyoto University (KURRI) and took place at KURRI from 15-19 May 2017.

Seminar 1: EPICS for beginners
Collaboration meeting - Main tracks
Seminar2: "EPICS 7 and CS-Studio" for advanced users

EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) is a set of open source software tools, libraries and applications developed collaboratively and used worldwide to create distributed soft real-time control systems for scientific instruments such as particle accelerators, telescopes, and large scientific experiments. These collaboration meetings provide a chance for developers and managers from the various different sites to come together and discuss their work and 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.

For further information, please contact the EPICS 2017 local team at epics2017##rri.kyoto-u.ac.jp (Replace ## with an atmark).
