The Spring 2015 EPICS Collaboration meeting is hosted by the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) and the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) and takes place at Michigan State University (MSU) from 18-22 May 2015.

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.

The Spring 2015 EPICS Collaboration meeting will take place in the Molecular Plant Sciences Building located on the campus on Michigan State University in Rm 1200.  All pre- and post- meeting sessions will be held at FRIB/NSCL on the campus of MSU.
