On Proposal Submission

We invite users and collaborators to discuss their proposals with the beamline local contacts well in advance before the submission deadline. This is crucial for a careful assessment of the experiment feasibility and may result in an improvement of the proposal.  Please read carefully our guidelines for proposal submission.

ATTENTION: Since 2018, SAXS beamtime can be obtained ONLY by submitting a CERIC beamtime proposal !!!  Access via an Elettra beamtime proposal is NOT possible anymore. Therefore, both single or also multiple technique CERIC beamtime proposals are now accepted for the SAXS beamline

Call for proposals

The deadlines for CERIC proposal submission for beamtime allocation from January 1st to June 30th, 2020 are

  • September 1st 2019 at 17:00 CET for users who wish to get a pre-evaluation and the possibility to improve their proposal
  • September 30th 2019 at 17:00 CET final submission, recommended only for users that are experts in all the techniques requested, and know the available experimental set-ups.


Access Request

Users and collaborators coming to the Austrian SAXS beamline for experiments are requested to fill out the dedicated Access Request Form. Timing for the submission of the Access Request varies according to Users Categories: General Users, EU Funded Users, Research Team Members and Collaborators must submit their Access Form at least two weeks before the experiment. Italian Users must submit their Access Request form at least one month before the experiment.
