  A new facility named SPARC_LAB (Sources for Plasma Accelerators and Radiation Compton with Lasers and Beams) has been recently launched at the INFN National Labs in Frascati, merging the potentialities of the an ultra-brilliant electron beam photoinjector and of a high power Ti:Sa laser. The test facility is now completed, hosting a 150 MeV high brightness electron beam injector which feeds a 12 meters long undulator. Observation of FEL radiation in variuous configurations has been performed. In parallel to that a 200 TW laser that is linked to the linac and devoted to explore laser-matter interaction, in particular with regard to laser-plasma acceleration of electrons (and protons) in the self injection and external injection modes. The facility will be also used for particle driven plasma acceleration experiments (the COMB experiment). A Thomson scattering experiment coupling the electron bunch to the high-power laser to generate coherent monochromatic X-ray radiation is also in the commissioning phase. We report in this paper the recent results obtained at the SPARC_LAB facility.

  !CHAOS is an INFN project aimed at creating the communication framework and the services needed for the definition of a new control system standard, mainly addressed to large experimental apparatus and particle accelerators. !CHAOS is under test at DAΦNE accelerator and has been developed to overcome the strong requirements throughput of new accelerators, like superB. One of the main components of the framework is the historical engine (HST Engine), a cloud-like environment optimized for the fast storage of large amount of data produced by the control system’s devices and services (I/O channels, alerts, commands, events, etc.), each with its own storage and aging rule. The HST subsystem is designed to be highly customizable, such to adapt to any desirable data storage technologies, database architecture, indexing strategy and fully scalable in each part. The architecture of HST Engine and the results of preliminary tests for the evaluation of performance are presented.
