The International Conference on Accelerator and Large Experimental Physics Control Systems (ICALEPCS) is a biennial series of conferences inaugurated in 1987 by a number of control system specialists from accelerator laboratories around the world.

The series of conferences is intended to:

  • Facilitate the interchange of ideas and information between control system specialists working on large experimental physics facilities around the world (accelerators, particle detectors, tokamaks, telescopes, etc.)
  • Create an archival literature of developments and progress in this rapidly changing discipline
  • Promote, where practical, standardization in both hardware and software
  • Assist colleagues from technically less developed countries in the realization of all of these goals.

Keynote, invited and contributed talks and poster presentations will cover:

  • Project Status Reports
  • Project Management and Collaboration
  • Integrating Complex or Diverse Systems
  • Knowledge-based Techniques
  • Personnel Safety and Machine Protection
  • Hardware Technology
  • Timing and Sync
  • Software Technology Evolution
  • Experiment Control
  • Feedback Systems
  • User Interfaces and Tools
  • Data Management and Processing
  • Control Systems Infrastructure
