HRIBF Call for Proposals - PAC-15
Information for PAC-15
(may be updated in future).
Proposal due date: June 15, 2009 (9 am EST)
PAC-15 is scheduled for July 22-23, 2009.
The HRIBF will accept proposals for consideration at the next meeting of the Program Advisory Committee at any time. A list of radioactive ion beams and their intensities is available. The Program Advisory Committee will consider and prioritize proposals for any of the many radioactive ion beams now available for research.
HRIBF must receive your proposal an an email attachment on or before the submission deadline. We use electronic submission in order to save costs and to accelerate the processing of the proposals. The review process will proceed almost immediately after the deadline. Proposals received after the deadline may be held for the following period. HRIBF will review the proposals for safety and feasibility and may be in contact with the spokespersons before the PAC meeting. The proposals will remain confidential although some statistics concerning number, participants, affiliations, types of experiments, etc., may be made public. Following the PAC meeting, only the accepted proposals may be made public. Upon acceptance, instructions will be sent to the spokespersons.
A properly submitted proposal consists of a proposal submission form which may be filled out and saved as a file from our WWW site and a recommended maximum of 5 pages (excluding figures) describing the experiment, the physics to be addressed, and the significance of the experiment. Supporting calculations including assumptions of beam currents or dose rates, efficiencies, and counting rates are required. In the case of RIBs, you must include a statement about your tolerance of isobaric contamination of the beam. Additional information concerning proposal submission may be found at our proposal guidelines web page.
As always, proposals involving stable ion beam (SIB) will be accepted on the basis of the criteria:
New users are expected to to have a signed User Agreement in place between their institution and Oak Ridge National Laboratory prior to the start of their experiment including any appendices required by ORNL/DOE. Users will be contacted and expected to provide the contact information of a person (usually in your Research Contracts Administration) who can execute the agreement. Failure to provide the requested information or in signing the agreement, will cause delays in the start of your experiment. A User Agreement describes the responsibilities of each party during the course of the experimental research.
Experiments at our facility are usually for fundamental research. All results from your research should be intended for publication in scientific journals. By submitting a proposal to HRIBF you certify that the technology associated with your proposal does not involve any activities prohibited by the United States Departments of Commerce or State as follows:
