EPICS is a set of Open Source software tools, libraries and applications developed collaboratively and used worldwide to create distributed soft real-time control systems for scientific instruments such as a particle accelerators, telescopes and other large scientific experiments.

Beginners: If you're just starting out with EPICS, take a look at the series of training lecture videos recorded at Argonne in 2014 and 2015.
