Call for Proposals at GANIL for PAC in November 2018

The next meeting of the GANIL Program Advisory Committee (PAC) will take place from November 15th to 16th 2018, at GANIL. The deadline for submission of the proposals is June 15th 2018 (12:00 CET)

The cyclotrons will be running approximately 4 months in one block in 2019. To optimize the running of the facility, this call for proposals is for experiments ready to run around April 2019.  Due to various technical constraints, this call will be restricted to experiments with:

·         G1 vault hosting the setup of VAMOS+MUGAST+AGATA

·         D5 vault hosting the setup FAZIA+INDRA

·         ACTAR placed either in G3 or in D6 (LISE) vault for entire beam period

·         D4 (LISE) and G2 vaults.

Proposals concerning experiments in the G1 and D5 vaults or ACTAR are required to be compatible and run as a campaign and coordinated as such, among the spokespersons, contact persons and scientific coordinators, prior to the proposal submission. Other interesting proposals not included in the above call should be sent as letters of intent so as to be able to help planning future calls.


Starting from this call, a new procedure will be introduced for the submission of experimental proposals to GANIL PAC. Please follow closely the proposal submission procedure below:

3.      The proposal should be submitted to GANIL via online submission using the following web form The deadline for proposal submission is on June 15th 2018 (12:00 CET). You should submit in pdf format:

·         a technical form (available at

·         a physics motivation (maximum 6 pages including figures and references)

4.      During the two subsequent weeks, exchanges between the spokesperson, the GANIL contact person and relevant scientific coordinators of the equipment will be used to assess the technical feasibility of the proposal and possible further improvements.

5.      The submission of the final proposal to the GANIL PAC is subject to validation, based on the outcome of the discussions on technical aspects between the spokesperson and the GANIL contact person. The spokesperson will be notified by email from the GANIL Beam Coordinator, before June 26th 2018.
