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 Cycle call for proposals

Call opens: September
Approx. Beamtime period: March – August

Fall Cycle call for proposals

Call opens: February
Approx. Beamtime period: September – February
