Submitting proposals

Electronic submission of documents

All documents for the INTC have to be submitted via the following interface:

For more details, see also the official INTC website.

Please note that the reference numbers for Proposals, Letter of Intent, and other document types are given electronically within the process of electronic submission of documents.


The deadline for submitting Proposals and Letters of Intent is six weeks prior to the INTC meeting, permitting a more thorough refereeing and the possibility to even out the load on the Committee by deferring presentations to later meetings. This period is also necessary to allow the documents to reach the Chairman and Committee Members, to decide and circulate the agenda, to appoint referees, inform speakers about their eventual presentations, and finally to give referees time to read and to evaluate the proposals fairly before the meeting.

Beam requirements

In order to assure proper planning and efficient use of the ISOLDE targets we ask that the information shown in the example below be included in experiment proposals.


Beam Min. intensity Target material Ion Source Shifts
73Br 1.8x107 Nb powder Negative surface 15
    or Nb foil Hot Plasma 15

The information on beam intensities, target material and ion sources may be found on the ISOLDE web page or in case of doubt obtained from discussions with the ISOLDE technical group.
