General Program Advisory Committee (G-PAC)
The General PAC is an international program advisory committee of GSI with external members. The General PAC gives advice to the Directorate on selecting experiment proposals that are submitted by individual users or user groups in the areas of nuclear and atomic physics. Following periodic calls for proposals, the General PAC meets to evaluate those experiment proposals on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility and with regard to the GSI strategy, and makes recommendations on the amount of beam time to be allotted by the directorate. The G-PAC also acts as umbrella for the different sub-PACs of GSI for various research fields.
Next G-PAC Meeting
Date of the next G-PAC Meeting:June 23-25, 2020 - due to Covid-19 pandemic postponed to August 26-28, 2020!
Proposals for G-PAC asking for a significant amount of beamtime will be presented to the G-PAC during the Meeting. Information on the agenda will be available in due time.
Spokespersons will be informed on the directorate's decision of granting beam time within the weeks following the G-PAC meeting.
Proposals for the sub-PACs Mat-PAC, Bio-PAC and PPAC will be evaluated by the respective committee; for dates of those meetings see respective PAC webpages.
Database of granted beam time
For information on remaining shifts/proposals of approved experiments your local contact person can search a database of active proposals. Entries are updated at the end of each beam time block.
