Normal proposals

Proposal process

To apply for beamtime at the Australian Synchrotron, submit an application via the online proposal system (Portal).  Proposals are accepted 3 times a year (see key dates). 

Normal merit proposals are peer-reviewed for scientific merit by external scientific reviewers and a specialist committee. The technical feasibility of the proposal is also reviewed.  Based on these reviews, proposals are then ranked by the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) for each beamline. 

Users are then notified by the User Office of the outcomes of these allocations.
