Sardana is a software suite, based on Tango Controls, for Supervision, Control, and Data Acquisition in scientific installations. It aims to reduce the cost and time of design, development and support of the control, and data acquisition systems. Sardana development was started at the ALBA synchrotron and today is supported by a larger community which includes several other laboratories and individuals (ALBA, DESY, MaxIV, MBI-Berlin, Solaris, ESRF).
Sardana Continuous Scans Workshop will be hosted by the SOLARIS and held on September 20th & 21st 2023. Speakers and attendees are welcome on-site but the sessions will be also accessible remotely.
As other similar frameworks, Sardana offers continuous scans to the users. The current design of our continuous scans is dated for 2013-2015. Anticipating new requirements we are starting discussions on eventual enhancement projects. The purpose of this workshop will be to learn from other similar frameworks on their approaches to continuous scans, exchange implemented solutions to advanced continuous scan cases, and discuss possible collaborations.
Presentations and discussions will cover:
Solution from DESY
Solution from Diamond
The proposed 2 days event will be organized in three parts.
Day One - Part One:
Invited speakers of similar frameworks will give short presentations: general architecture, current features, possibilities of each framework, and a short and mid-term roadmap.
Day One - Part Two:
Invited speakers of similar frameworks will give detailed presentations on their approaches to continuous scans, and solutions to advanced continuous scan cases (not necessarily implemented as parts of the frameworks). Ideally referring to the missing features in Sardana, as listed below:
