Program Advisory Committee (PAC)

The FRIB Program Advisory Committee (PAC) is a group of international experts who review proposals for non-proprietary beam time requests submitted to FRIB. PAC makes recommendations to the FRIB Laboratory Director about beam-time allocation.

PAC includes world-leading scientists who are highly regarded in the low-energy community. The term for PAC membership is three years. The FRIB Scientific Director is a non-voting convener, and the FRIB Manager for User Relations is a non-voting administrator. Observer status is offered to the DOE-SC Office of Nuclear Physics and a representative of the FRIB Users Organization.
