The BABAR/PEP-II liaison group
1. Charge to the group
There will be one person from this group permanently on shift in the PEP-II control room during the first PEP-II run (May 7 /August 31 1999).The role of this person is to serve generally as a liaison between BABAR and PEP_II to increase the overall running efficiency and to minimize the background impact on BABAR. More precisely, they will:
a-Help PEP-II crew to use BABAR inputs and interpret what's going on in BABAR
b-Inform BABAR of what is going on in PEP-II
c-participate in immediate running decisions (under the authority of BABAR shift leader) with BABAR and PEP-II shift leaders.
d-collect all the information useful for BABAR in PEP-II control room
e-participate in daily BABAR and PEP-II meetings
f-analyse off-line babar backgrounds data wrt respect to the machine
g-Prepare and implement the automatisation of the above tasks, where relevant.
Note that they are not charged with a specific BABAR protection role. BABAR protection should rely on the BABAR protection system and not on human being interventions. However, by having a loving look at BABAR sensors, they will certainly contribute to the overall protection, spotting problems before they become critical.
'Administratively', they are to be considered like another BABAR person in shift, similar to those on shift in BABAR control room. They therefore report during their shift to BABAR shift leader.
2. Size and Composition of the group
This group requires specialized knowledge about PEP-II and its backgrounds and it is therefore restricted to knowledgeable people. The desire to keep the group in close contact with the machine puts also a limit on the group size to keep the shift frequency high enough (~1 per month). The present list of volunteers is (in random order)
