What do ACKS, CALICE, CEP, SiD, SRB and XMC Have in
By Jean Deken
All of them are acronyms used at SLAC, and have
been added to the SLACSpeak glossary in the past 12 months—along with
their definitions or explanations. SLACSpeak is both a continuously
updated website and an occasionally re-issued publication produced by
the SLAC Archives and History Office.
There are several easy and convenient ways to
locate SLACSpeak on the Web when you need to look up an unfamiliar
acronym or term:
• Type slacspeak in the grey and white global
navigation (search) box on any of SLAC’s pages.
• Go to any top-level page on the SLAC site with
left-hand navigation links, and click on the ‘SLACSpeak Glossary’ flyout
link under ‘About SLAC.’
• Go to the Detailed Index and look under ‘S’:
• Bookmark SLACSpeak on your Web browser:
The SLACSpeak glossary may be searched by acronym
or by definition, or readers may browse an on-line alphabetical list of
the terms and acronyms it contains. There is also a ‘Suggest Term’ link
on the site that allows users to submit terms and acronyms that they
have searched for and not found, and that they would like to have added
to the glossary.
