All experimental proposals at TRIUMF are screened by the Experiments Evaluation Committee (EEC), a peer review board constituted of distinguished scientists from all over the globe. The Materials Sciences EEC convenes to hear formal proposals twice a year, usually in early December and July. It then advises TRIUMF's Director of its recommended priorities in the allocation of beam time and major facilities. The Director is not bound by the EEC's recommendations, but has never ignored them. Proposals are solicited and received from individuals and groups around the world and are judged solely on the basis of scientific merit and feasibility. During their review they are assigned a priority rating that assists in the scheduling of the experiment.
Submit experimental proposals and progress reports using the online form.
To get a user-ID and password, if you do not have them already, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To be assigned a new experiment number, or to report problems, contact email@example.com (Melva McLean, phone 604-222-7438).
See the submission guide.
Deadlines for new proposals are usually around 2 months prior to the EEC meetings. Announcements of these meetings and the corresponding deadlines will normally accompany biannual mailings from the TRIUMF Information Office to registered members of the TRIUMF Users' Group (which you should join). Please pay close attention to these deadlines and leave plenty of time to prepare good proposals. You should check the CMMS announcements web page for news also.
