ATLAS Proposal Submission

A call for ATLAS Proposals is made 2-3 times per year, depending on the backlog of approved experiments and the available beam time. The formal call for proposals will be issued by e-mail to our list of ATLAS Users approximately two months prior to the PAC meeting. To join the list of ATLAS Users and receive the call for proposals anouncements, please contact Ms. Barbara Weller at

The deadline for submitting proposals to the May 21-22, 2017 ATLAS PAC has now passed. If you have submitted a proposal, you should by now have received by email an acknowledgment of your submission.

If you have any questions regarding PAC submissions or any other ATLAS related matter, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Shaofei Zhu at
