EPICS Spring 2015 Week 7 Announcements (February 23 – 27, 2015)

  1. Good luck in Design Reviews this week!

    b. Reminder: Send the link or URL of your design documentation to ECN (epicsite@ecn.purdue.edu) ASAP if you haven’t done so already so it can be posted for the reviewers.

    c. We will use a local login for the podium computers in ARMS 1098B/C to facilitate the remote reviewers, so please bring your presentations on a USB drive to facilitate easy access.

    d. Schedule of design reviewers assigned by EPICS: REVIEWERS_Schedule.pdf (Note: the schedule often changes during the week. We will try to keep it as up to date as possible, but sometimes we only learn that someone cannot attend that morning.)
