Abstract: The ILC control system architecture is evolving as requirements are gathered and the research and development effort gains steam. We present the general purpose control system architecture as of the time of writing the ILC Reference Design Report. We do not cover specialized subsystems such as timing, fast feedback, and machine protection. The rationale for establishing architecture at this stage is threefold: we require a model from which to make a cost estimate; we require a model to validate that we are meeting the control system requirements; and we must communicate our vision to the technical system groups early and often. The architecture described here is not fully specified; nonetheless a number of distinct design choices are made. Future requirements gathering, research, and development will complete the picture.
