Abstract:
The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) is a set of Open Source software tools, libraries and applications developed collaboratively and used worldwide. EPICS is used to create distributed soft real-time control systems for scientific instruments such as a particle accelerators, telescopes and other large scientific experiments.

EPICS is used extensively at the APS. The last comprehensive EPICS training at the APS was held ten years ago. Since then many things have changed, and many individuals have joined the organization. The AES Software Services Group is organizing an updated series of EPICS training classes to begin this September and continue through the winter of 2015. Many of the classes will have corresponding hands-on laboratory sessions.
