Procedure to Apply for Beamtime
At GSI several Program Advisory Committees (PACs) were formed to make recommendations for allocation of beam time based on written proposals submitted to the respective PAC. The decision on beam time allocation is taken by the Scientific Director of GSI based on the recommendations of the advisory committee, and is communicated in writing to the spokesperson of the respective proposal.
Calls for Proposals are published on the website of the respective PAC and through the mailinglist of the GSI Users' Group. This mailing list is based on registrations to the GSI Users' Group. Indications on the process of submission of experiment proposals are given on the webpages of the respective PACs. Proposals consist of information on the applicants and on the beam time request, a questionnaire on safety issues and a text explaining background and aims of the proposed experiment. For a continuation request, a brief status report of the previous as well as an outline of the future experiments should be given.
