The 19th biennial International Conference on Accelerator and Large Experimental Physics Control Systems (ICALEPCS) 2023, the largest conference dedicated to control systems for accelerators and large experiments in physics, will be held from 9th October to 13th October 2023 and hosted for the first time in Africa since its inception by the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) in Cape Town. The theme of the conference this year is “Accelerating Control Systems Software for Ground-breaking Science.”
ICALEPCS is a series of biennial conferences that rotates between three major areas of the world; America (including North, Central and South America), Asia (including Oceania) and EMEA (Europe, including Russia, the Middle East and Africa). The conference is inaugurated by several control system specialists from accelerator laboratories worldwide.
In recent decades several instruments have come online to conduct different experiments to test and glean more insights into theories and improve our understanding of the universe. The MeerKAT dishes in South Africa make a star appearance, contributing towards this goal of ground-breaking science with its highly sensitive receivers for radio wave observations. The need for equally matching control system software in scale and performance cannot be emphasised enough with the arrival of these powerful instruments.
Industry stakeholders will be sharing the improvements and advances in their work with the community, and the conference poses a unique learning opportunity to equip its participants to produce novel work and support the effort to churn out groundbreaking scientific work. The conference is an in-person event that aims to discuss innovations and fashion collaborations from the various meetings with participants.
