Organizer: Roland Müller (BESSY, Germany)
The IADBG (International Accelerator DataBase Group) was set up in 1994 to provide a forum for exchange of information and ideas concerning the use and role of RDBMS in accelerator laboratories. Beside a three-day workshop following ICALEPCS 1995 in Chicago regular information flow has been based on satellite meetings at PAC and EPAC conferences, as well as the circulation of a newsletter and private contacts (see http://iadbg.web.cern.ch/IADBG/). Since PAC 1999 IADBG activities have been dormant.
In contrast, the importance of RDBMS has significantly risen within the last few years. The need for discussion of ideas has already lead to some smaller working group meetings within certain DB interest fields. In particular, there are several application areas of extreme importance to any new accelerator related project where a common level of awareness would be advantageous for a wider community:
To address the general needs of the accelerator (controls) community, we are holding a one-day meeting on Sat Dec 1st 2001 after the ICALEPCS covering the following areas:
The workshop will start with a collection of status reports in the morning followed by moderated discussions in the afternoon. This would allow us to identify the present areas and directions of RDBMS activities within the accelerator controls projects.

|Registration--ABS registration is required and is separate from ICALEPCS registration|
The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) software tool kit is used in more than 100 laboratories, universities, and industrial facilities throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Following the tradition at previous ICALEPCS meetings, a workshop will be held in conjunction with ICALEPCS 2001, giving newcomers an opportunity to learn about EPICS. EPICS users will also have the opportunity to give feedback and suggest ideas for new enhancements with the developers.
