TDAQ shift training

This is an informational page for taking TDAQ shifts at ATLAS point 1. You can take shifts for three different desks:
  1. Run Control
  2. DAQ/HLT
  3. Trigger

1. Requirements

In order to take shifts you need access to the ATLAS control room, for this, you need to take safety courses up to level 4A and sign up in EDH for ATLAS_U (should be replaced by ATLAS_CR soon) Furthermore you have to complete the shift training (see email below) and take some shadow shifts. You will also need an account a P1, which you can get by emailing the TDAQ run coordinators and sysadmins ( and explaining your situation. With this P1 account you should also be able to access the ATLAS elog. To change your password follow these instructions

4. Email with training information (2009)

The dates for the next TDAQ shifter training sessions are fixed till the end of this year.
Here are your options:
  1. ) 27-28 Aug.
  2. ) 01-02 Oct.
  3. ) 05-06 Nov.
  4. ) 03-04 Dec.

Each training session is still divided in 4 blocks, but the arrangement has changed a bit from the past: we'll have two consecutive mornings (Thursday & Friday), instead of a single full day:
--- Thursday Morning (09:00 - 13:30) at 6-2-024
  1. ) General introduction (obligatory for all) - intro to TDAQ & intro to common shifter matters
  2. ) Run Control desk (optional) ===> NOTE: no registration needed for these two blocks; you'll sign attendance sheets on the spot.

--- Friday Morning (09:00 - 13:30) at salleB or 40-4-C01, depending on the dates.
  1. ) DAQ/HLT desk (optional)
  2. ) Trigger desk (LVL1+HLT) (optional) ===> NOTE: At each session, a max. of 20 people will be trained for each of these two desks. In order to participate, please register and bring a laptop, as explained at the web pages mentioned above. For these two desks you'll walk through the hands-on exercises described on:

You can already schedule your attendance according to the desk which interests you. Recall that in order to take a shift at Point1, you have to have gone through:
a) the relevant blocks of a training session,
b) a hands-on exercise by following the relevant twiki
c) take some "shadow shifts" at Point1, in order to get familiar with the real system and job.
