Room: GSI, SB2 2.239b


Please, feel free to add topics to the agenda.
  • Protokoll of previous meeting
  • Definition of our aims. What do we want? Control systems for Experiments and interaction/interfaces with DAQ and Accelerator? Or control systems for DAQ? Or do we understand ourselves more as a kind of controls coordination group that works out recommendations? Or are we a working group that actually provides tools and intefaces that can be used in real life?
  • Commitments of FAIR collaborations
    In order to make this series of meetings efficient we definitely need commitments of the FAIR collaborations and affected groups. Do we want to go for a Memorandum of Understanding?
  • Controls School
    I proposed at ICALEPCS 2005 to organize a Controls School. I will report about the ongoing discussion. Are the member of FAIR collaborations interested in such a Controls School?
  • EMailList for invitations etc.
  • ...
