Call for Proposals at GANIL for PAC in June 2016


The next meeting of the GANIL Program Advisory Committee (PAC) will take place on: Thursday and Friday, June 9th and 10th 2016, at GANIL. The deadline for the submission of proposals will be: Friday, April 8th, 2016.


The PAC will evaluate at this meeting, proposals for experiments at the GANIL/SPIRAL2 accelerator facilities, including those related to the new NFS facility at SPIRAL2, and those related to the SPIRAL1 upgrade.
It is anticipated that approved experiments could be scheduled in 2017/2018. Before submitting a proposal, spokespersons have to contact their GANIL scientific representative(s) (1) for the apparatus or equipment they would like to use.  The scientific contact can assist you with completing the updated proposal form (2), answer any of your detailed technical questions, and will advise you on similar experimental setups that are foreseen in order to facilitate the coordination of possible campaigns of experiments. A new web-based interactive chart of the nuclides should be used for estimating beam intensities and yields (3).
Concerning LISE, proposals making use of the “LISE2017” arrangement, involving the combination of annular silicon detectors, MUST2 and an identification detector at 0°, are encouraged in order to profit from the campaign strategy agreed on by the community at the LISE workshop in December 2015.
Concerning beams from the SPIRAL1 upgrade, only a restricted list of beams is eligible to experiment proposals. The list of eligible beams will be issued on the following GANIL webpage (4) after the SPIRAL1 upgrade workshop on February 8th-10th 2016 (5).
Concerning the proposals using AGATA, only those involving NEDA and possibly other devices compatible with the coupling of AGATA and NEDA like DIAMANT will be evaluated and must have been submitted to the Pre-PAC workshop of the collaboration on February 10th-12th 2016 (6).
Concerning the NFS experiments, pre-proposals must be submitted to the NFS scientific coordinator (1) by Thursday, March 10th 2016. The pre-proposals will be discussed by the NFS collaboration board to assess the feasibility of the experiment according to the LINAC and NFS capabilities. This procedure is needed since this facility is new at GANIL. The available NFS beam characteristics can be found on the web site (7).
More information and instructions for submitting proposals can be found on our web site ( and by following the links provided below. Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions or experience any difficulties during the submission process.
We thank you in advance for your contributions.
