Materials Research Program Advisory Committee (Mat-PAC)
GSI has established a Materials Research Program Advisory Committee (Mat-PAC) that evaluates experiment proposals submitted to GSI in the area of materials research. The Mat-PAC members give advice to the GSI directorate on selecting experiment proposals that are submitted by individual users or user groups. Following periodic calls for proposals, the Mat-PAC meets to evaluate experiment proposals on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility, and makes recommendations on the amount of beam time to be allotted.
Next Mat-PAC Meeting
Date of the next Mat-PAC Meeting: 16 - 17 June 2020
Though this year's G-PAC meeting has been shifted from June to August due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mat-PAC meeting will take place as videomeeting in June as planned.
