Abstract: DIAMOND is a new synchrotron light source currently being designed in the UK. The control system for DIAMOND will be a site wide monitoring and control system for the accelerators, beamlines and conventional facilities. Initial work on the control system has selected EPICS as the basis for the control system design. The requirements of the control system are presented. The technical solutions being considered to interface EPICS to the equipment being controlled are discussed together with the requirements for configuration and management of a large EPICS installation. Options being considered for the procurement, installation and commissioning of the control system are also presented.
