INSTRUMENTATION & CONTROL AND CODAC

Parallel session C2

6th October 2022/ 11:00-13:30
Picasso room
(floor -2)

Big Science organisations have a particular need for high performant I&C (Instrumentation and Control) and CODAC (Control, Data Access and Communication) systems. These are used for the scientific exploitation of the facility for the data acquisition and processing of the data, and they are also used for the essential control systems for e.g. safety, machine protection, robotic systems etc. The technical areas of relevance include for example: real-time systems, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, for example EPICS), electronics and FPGA design, automation, and network infrastructure.
