Sections

Applications and Services (APS)

The APS section provides generic data management services and comprehensive software solutions needed within the Accelerator & Technology Sector for the exploitation of the accelerator chain, and for the maintenance of the physical installations. Its services are used equally during the accelerator run and the long shutdowns and have a large, diverse user community, CERN-wide, and, in some instances, external to CERN.

The generic services provided by APS cater for:
