Motion Control Applications in large Facilities Workshop - 8th of October, 2017 - Barcelona, Spain

le 8 octobre 2017 Barcelone, Espagne

Organised by: Yves-Marie Abiven (SOLEIL), Christer Engblom (SOLEIL), Brian Nutter (DLS), Nader Afshar (AS), Paul Barron (ESS), Nicolas Janvier (ESRF), Nicola Coppola (XFEL), and Guifré Cuní (ALBA)

The ICALEPCS MOCRAF workshop group has been created on to discuss about the organization of the ICALEPCS Motion Control pre-conference Workshop. Its purpose is to get feedback from attendees to make the workshop as interesting and pleasurable as possible. This group will remain alive after the workshop to be the input for the future ICALEPCS MOCRAF meeting.

Different topics can be discussed like:

  • Experiences in Robotics
  • Closed-loop control system with different feedback sources
  • Metrology – Stage evaluations, estimations, simulations, characterization methods
  • Tools for modeling motion control and mechanical systems
  • Motion control challenges: submicron positioning, continuous and synchronous motion control and data detector's acquisition

For more information, please contact Guifré Cuní.
