We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Mitch D'Ewart (SLAC)


Until recently VME RTEMS-based IOCs have been the platform of choice for control systems at SLAC. Cost and hardware availability make industrial PCs running Linux an attractive option for EPICS based IOCs. The CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch has been used to significantly improve the real-time performance of Linux. We will discuss real-time performance issues and migration experience for LinuxRT based EPICS IOCs.
