Call for proposals

The next meeting of the GANIL Program Advisory Committee (PAC) will take place from the 27th to 28th  of November 2024. It will be held  in hybride mode. This call is open for experimental proposals to be performed at the GANIL cyclotrons experimental areas and the SPIRAL2/NFS facility. The deadline for submission of the proposals is October 1st, 2024 (12:00 CET).
  • Proposals for the NFS facility need to consider specific characteristics available on the NFS Web page.
  • For proposals of experiments in the D6 experimental hall in 2026, scientific coordinators of LISE and related detectors must be contacted at least one month before the proposal submission.
  • SPIRAL1 experiments and beam developments are encouraged. Since 2021, several in beam tests have been performed at the SPIRAL1 complex. The consolidated yields are given here.
Requests for test-beam time in auxiliary mode is encouraged via the following form. The submission of experimental proposals to GANIL PAC should follow the procedure below:
  1. Prior to the proposal submission, you are requested to communicate with the equipment scientific coordinators (see list at the bottom of the page here)
  2. The proposal should be submitted to GANIL via online submission using the following web form
  3. The spokesperson will be notified of the validity of the proposal for submission to the PAC by email from the GANIL Beam Coordinator, before October 5th, 2024.
  4. Each collaborator must confirm before submission of the proposal form that they have read the proposal and have agreed to participate in the experiment.
  5. Spokespersons and all collaborators are required to subscribe as members of the GANIL User Community (GUC). To become a member, please register at
In case, you encounter any problems please contact the beam coordinator Important Notes:
  • Accepted proposals are valid for a three-year period and can be scheduled at any time during this period. Beyond this period the validity of the physics case has to be reevaluated by the PAC independently of the reasons for its non-realization.
  • Approved experiments will follow the GANIL data management plan and data policy
  • Approved experiments must follow the GANIL Publication Policy.
Important dates:
  • The dead line for the proposal submission is October 1St 2024 at 12:00 CET
  • The TAC will be held on the 5th of November
  • The dates of the PAC meeting to be held are the 27th- 28th November 2024
