This is a reminder that the deadline for IPNS Call for proposals for the
period of February 2008-April 2008 is Friday, November 9, 2007.

Web-based Submission of Proposals

All proposals for the current round, Round 50, must be submitted by using
the IPNS Web-based proposal form, which permits quick and efficient
processing of your submission.  To prevent delays please read the
instructions before you begin using the form.  

If you are a returning user or have registered previously, enter your badge
number and password to log into the system.  Click on the following website:
https://beam.aps.anl.gov/pls/apsweb/ipns0001.start_page.  If you are an
unregistered user or forgot your badge number, enter your email address.  
You can attach images to the proposal but not a PDF file of the old IPNS
proposal form.

Please forward this message to anyone who may be interested in submitting a
proposal to IPNS. If you would like to be deleted from our mailing list,
please respond with DELETE in the Subject line.
Starting with the previous round we have implemented a new proposal review
system.  Larger external review panels than used in the past will evaluate
all proposals and a Beam Time Allocation Committee (BTAC) will determine
beamtime allocations.

PLEASE NOTE: If your proposal was put on Standby Status and you were not
given beam time during the previous round (Round 49) then your proposal will
be automatically submitted in the current run, unless you instruct us

Programmatic Proposals

IPNS will accept Programmatic proposals for many instruments.  Programmatic
proposals are similar to regular proposals, except that they require a more
extensive "scientific background" that justifies access to IPNS instruments
for two years.  The number of days requested should be for the next cycle

Programmatic proposals are identified by the first two words in the abstract
("Programmatic Proposal").  The same form is used for regular and
programmatic proposals and the submittal procedure is the same.  Reviewers
will evaluate each new programmatic proposal, assigning Numerical Ratings
(NR) as for other proposals, and time will be granted by the BTAC.  For the
following three cycles the Instrument Scientist (IS) or designate will
communicate with the PI to assign days based on needs.  

Instrument Scientists will review the scientific productivity of
programmatic proposals and continued access to instruments will be granted
only to productive proposals.  Renewals will be considered after 2 years and
will require review panel evaluation. 
For further information or questions, contact the respective Instrument
Scientist (contact information at IPNS website)
http://www.pns.anl.gov/proposal_call/ .

Experimental Reports

Those who have already run experiments should submit an experiment report on
the standard IPNS Experimental Report Form.  Referencing and discussing all
previous work at IPNS is useful to the Program Advisory Committee and can
enhance your proposal's prospects for acceptance.  Experimental reports will
also be accepted by email.  Proposal submission information can be found at

The experimental report form can be downloaded from the IPNS website
