  After two-year's shutdown, the GSI accelerators plus the latest addition of storage ring CRYRING, will be back into operation in 2018 as the FAIR phase 0 with the goal to fulfill the needs of scientific community and the FAIR accelerators and detector development. Even though GSI has been well known for its operation of a variety of ion beams ranging from proton up to uranium for multi research areas such as nuclear physics, astrophysics, biophysics, material science, the upcoming beam time faces a number of challenges in re-commissioning its existing circular accelerators with brand new control system and upgrade of beam instrumentations, as well as in rising failures of dated components and systems. The cycling synchrotron SIS18 has been undergoing a set of upgrade measures for fulfilling future FAIR operation, among which many measures will also be commissioned during the upcoming beam time. This paper presents the highlights of the challenges such as re-establishing the high intensity heavy ion operation as well as parallel operation mode for serving multi users. The status of preparation including commissioning results will also be reported.

  CRYRING@ESR is a heavy ion storage ring, which can cool and decelerate highly charged ions down to a few 100 keV/u. It has been relocated from Sweden to GSI, downstream of the experimental storage ring (ESR), within the FAIR project. The ring will be used as a test facility for FAIR technologies as well as for physics experiments with slow exotic ion beams for several FAIR collaborations: SPARC, BioMat, FLAIR and NUSTAR. CRYRING@ESR is in its commissioning phase since summer 2016. Several ion-optical measurements such as tunes, tune diagram, dispersion, chromaticity and orbit response matrix were performed at the ring. The measurements will be used for several purposes such as improvement of the theoretical model, closed orbit control and correction of unacceptable misalignments, calibration coefficients and field errors.

  Due to the massive parallel operation modes at the GSI accelerators, a lot of accelerator setup and re-adjustment have to be made by the operators during a beam time. With the FAIR project the complexity of the accelerator facility increases furthermore and for efficiency reasons it is recommended to establish a high level of automation for future operation. The PEP (parameter evolution project) has been launched at GSI operations group in 2017 to investigate the potential of a settings optimization using evolutionary Algorithms. The working proof of principle has already been tested at the Cryring injector. The latest improvements and the further Development of the Parameter Evolution Project will be shown.
