Call for proposals

The next meeting of the GANIL Program Advisory Committee (PAC) will take place on the 8th and 9th of December 2022. It will be held  in presence


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 24, 2022 (14:00 CET).


Proposals for the NFS facility need to consider specific characteristics available on the NFS Web page.


Proposals for experiments in the D6 experimental hall in 2023 are required to be compatible with the MUST2-MUGAST setup, to run as a campaign and coordinated as such, among the spokespersons, contact persons and scientific coordinators, prior to the proposal submission.


The PARIS array (8 clusters of 9 phoswiches each) will be available for the experiments from March to December 2023.


SPIRAL1 experiments and beam developments are encouraged.


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 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 31, 2022.
  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 must follow the GANIL Publication Policy.

Important dates:

  • The dead line for the proposal submission is October 24,2022 (14:00 CET).
  • The TAC will be held on November 22, 2022.
  • The dates of the PAC meeting to be held are the December 8-9, 2022.
