14th - 17th October 2014


PCAPAC Gruppenbild

PCaPAC 2014 was hosted by the ANKA Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Karlsruhe, Germany. PCaPAC traditionally focuses on low cost control systems using PC technology for control and data acquisition systems. PCaPAC 2014 had a focus on emerging technologies such as:

  • Control systems (Status reports, Control system frameworks (EPICS, Tango, Tine), Network design, Reliability and longevity of control systems)
  • User interfaces and Data Displays (mobile systems, web services and other)
  • Cyber security (Gateways, Internet connectivity and other)
  • Hardware technologies (DSP, FPGA and devices, Accelerator specific development, Timing System PC busses and other)
  • Modern Data Acquisition (commercial off-the-shelf systems, (real-time) operating systems. embedded systems, PLC´s, IOC´s and other)
  • Management of Software projects (Development processes, Quality Assurance, In time development and other)
  • Databases (Control DBs, extremely large databases, noSQL DBs and other)
