EPICS collaboration meetings provide a chance for developers and managers from the various different sites to come together and discuss their work in progress and make plans for the future. They give a chance to see what is being done at other laboratories, and to review the specifications for new tools or enhancements to existing ones in order to maximize their usefulness to the whole community and avoid duplication of effort.
The links below are to web sites created by the hosting organization for each particular meeting, or to an APS copy of the agenda and presentations if the hosting organization has taken down the original web site.
The collaboration also hosts Codeathons that are events where developers get together, typically for a week, to work on implementing new features or improving the code.

Questions about collaboration meetings in general should be addressed to the Tech-Talk mailing list. The responsibility for selecting the locations of future meetings now belongs to the EPICS Council.
