Call for proposals

The next meeting of the GANIL Program Advisory Committee (PAC) will take place on September 24-25th 2020, at GANIL. This call is open for experimental proposals to be performed at the GANIL cyclotrons experimental vaults and SPIRAL2/NFS facility. The deadline for submission of the proposals is May 15th 2020 (14:00 CET). The cyclotrons will be available for experiments starting from February 2021 and the NFS facility will be available for experiments starting from September 2021. This call for proposals covers the experiments ready to run for these periods. The G1 vault will host AGATA coupled to VAMOS. Proposals for experiments in the G1 experimental hall are required to be compatible to run as a campaign and coordinated as such, among the spokespersons, contact persons and scientific coordinators, prior to the proposal submission. Other proposals for the G1 experimental hall, not complying with the above call, should be sent as letters of intent. All proposals for the experimental halls, other than G1, are not subject to restrictions. Proposals for the NFS facility need to consider specific characteristics available on the NFS Web page of the GANIL website. 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 below in "Scientific coordinators")
  2. The proposal should be submitted to GANIL via online submission using the following web form The deadline for proposal submission is May 15th 2020 (14:00 CET).
  3. The spokesperson will be notified of the validity of the proposal by email from the GANIL Beam Coordinator, before May 30th 2020.
  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
Should you encounter any problems please contact the beam coordinator Important Note: Accepted proposals are valid for a three-year period and can be scheduled at any time during this period. Past this period the validity of the physics case has to be reevaluated by the PAC independently of the reasons for its non-realisation. Useful dates:
  • The dead line for the proposal submission is on May 15th 2020 (14:00 CET).
  • The PAC meeting will be held on September 24-25th 2020.
