Please submit proposals for the February 2014 run by December 15, 2013
. Proposals received after this date will be accepted but may not have time for full evaluation before the run and may be deferred until the next run.
If you are interested in beamtime for the current run please contact Kathy Dedrick, email@example.com
for more information.
CHESS Proposal Policy:
CHESS accepts and reviews proposals year round. Typically, a proposal will be considered for feasibility and peer reviewed within a week of submission, and then queued for scheduling based on merit. Early admission begins two months before a run, when CHESS begins scheduling up to 50% of the available beamtime with meritorious proposals in the queue. CHESS begins scheduling the remaining 50% of the beamtime one month before the run starts.
Proposals not awarded beamtime remain in the queue and will be considered for early admission in subsequent runs. Please submit early and often!
