****** SOSH 97 ---- SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT *******

  There will be a Software Sharing Workshop in Vancouver, British
Columbia,  following the PAC 97 conference.  This workshop is part of a
series of workshops aimed at fostering the reuse of software within the
accelerator and detector controls
communities.

  Date:     May 19,20, 1997
  Location: Hotel Vancouver

  To register, and for more information, see 
        http://sunset.triumf.ca/sosh97/sosh97.htm

  PLEASE NOTE THE HOTEL RESERVATION DEADLINES OF APRIL 6 AND APRIL 10

  If you don't have access to the world-wide web, please send e-mail to
  waltraud@triumf.ca to receive registration information.

                                R. Keitel (local organizer)

******** Preliminary Program ********

The Software Sharing Workshop will include both oral presentations on
control system topics, and working sessions aimed at one particular
aspect of software sharing within the accelerator, astronomy, and
physics detector control communities.

Four working sessions are planned, covering:

    1) Accelerator Device Standardization & Shareable Applications

    2) CDEV Common DEVice framework: usage conventions, new proposals

    3) Java: Sharing the most portable of software

    4) Finite State Machines

Participants will be given an opportunity to take part in 2 of the 4
working groups, and invited and contributed talks will be given during
the plenary sessions on these topics to start the discussions going.


Monday Morning

        Session 1:  Distributed Computing

          1. Invited talk on OLE - (working on speaker)
          2. CDEV Overview - Chip Watson, JLAB
          3. New CDEV Networking Extensions - Walt Akers, JLAB
          4. (related contributions)

        Session 2: What's Good and Shareable!

          1. VME bus software standards - Wayne Koska, FNAL
          2. (other contributions)

Monday Afternoon

        Session 3:  Standardizing accelerator device control

          1. Reports & Talks from the Working Groups on
              * standardizing device class/field/attribute definitions
              * standardizing device status     
              * error reporting & logging

        Parallel Working Groups:

          Working Group 1: Accelerator Device Standardization
            Animator: Franck DiMaio, CERN

              * Experience using CDEV in building beam 
                steering software - Johannes van Zeijts, JLAB
              * Development of standard definitions for common
                accelerator components used by high level software,
including
                accelerator specific classes (magnet, bpm, others)

          Working Group 2: CDEV Developments/Extensions
            Animator: Walt Akers, Jefferson Lab

              * Propose and create detailed requirements for new 
                extensions to the cdev framework
              * Discuss how to interface CDEV to existing systems

Tuesday Morning

        Session 4:  Graphics

          1. Contributions on portable GUI applications
              * EPICS tools ported to cdev: stripTool, alarm handler,
...
              * new cdev tools: XACT, zplot, ...
              * Motif widget libraries
              * (other)

          2. JDM: Java Display Manager - Chip Watson, JLAB

          3. Experiences with Java in a large HEP detector 
             (speaker not confirmed)

        Session 5:  Finite State Machines

          1. The EPICS state machine (speaker not confirmed)

          2. (other state machines)

Tuesday Afternoon:

        Parallel Working Groups:

          Working Group 3: Java
            Animator: Chip Watson, JLAB

              * Develop requirements for java applets to interact with
                a control system, including authentication, data flow 
                control, gateway architecture issues
              * Work on collaboration framework for sharing java class
                libraries
              * Discuss collaborative development of JDM

          Working Group 4: Finite State Machines
            Animator: (tbd)

              * Can we make a portable/shareable FSM?
              * Is an existing program a good starting point?


        Session 6:  Reports from Working Groups

          This session will allow time for further interaction on
working 
          group topics by all participants, perhaps organizing ongoing 
          working groups on a small number of topics.
