Call for proposals

MAX IV opens Calls for proposals twice per year for the General User Access program. The calls are named according to their beamtime period (and year), not when the call itself opens. The two calls & beamtime cycles are split approximately like this:

Spring call for proposals

Call opens: September
Beamtime period: March – August

Fall call for proposals

Call opens: February
Beamtime period: September – February


Spring23, Call for proposals

The table below lists which beamlines are open to what access types (proposal types) for the current open call, or the next one if no call is currently open.

If you click the beamline name in the leftmost column, it will take you directly to that beamline page.
