Dear all,

the EPICS workshop at CERN will take place next week.
We have 30 -non CERN- participants registered!

The agenda is quite busy but -as always on our workshops- we are open to 
make changes. The agenda is meant to be our giudeline in order to plan for 
the duration of the talks. All the talks have been squeezed to be able to 
gather as much information as possible in the two days. 

If you are missing something we'll still find a slot to discuss it.

General items:

Wednesday is dedicated to more general training in the morning and 
installation issues in the evening.
This day we'll also have the CERN tour.

Thursday/ Friday is the workshop.
The visit to the CERN control room(s) still needs confirmation.
Looking at the agenda it might be better to plan for friday.
(Fabien: ok?)


The meeting will take place in the following rooms:

Wednesday	building 6 room 2024 
Thirsday	building 6 room 2004
Friday		building 6 room 2024
(please use the WEB to find out where this building is located)
 --> http://www.cern.ch/map/building?bno=6

Looking forward to see you all at CERN.

Matthias
