  The Spiral2 project at Ganil aims to produce rare ion beams using a uranium carbide target fission process. The accelerator consists of an RFQ followed by a superconducting cavity linac and is designed to provide high-intensity primary beams (deuterons, protons, or heavy ions). The accelerator should be commissioned by the end of 2011, and the first exotic beams are planned for one year later. The control system will be a result of collaboration between several institutes, among which is the Saclay Dapnia division, which has good experience and knowledge with EPICS. Because of its widely used functionalities, EPICS has been chosen as the basic framework for the accelerator control, and people from the other laboratories belonging to the collaboration are progressively acquiring their first experiences with it. The paper first explains the organization of the collaboration, then it describes the basic hardware and software choices for the project. Some preliminary implementations are therefore given. As the project is still in its beginning phase, the paper ends by listing some questions not yet resolved for the control system definition and remaining open to discussion.
