Call for 2019B SACLA Research Proposals for Complementary Use of SPring-8, J-PARC MLF or the K computer

1. Overview

We have been launched a program called “SACLA Research Proposals for Complementary Use of SPring-8, J-PARC MLF, and/or the K computer” to promote the combined use of SACLA and these three large-scale facilities in Japan since 2017A:

This program is an extension of the former “Complementary Use Program among SPring-8, J-PARC MLF and the K computer” that has operated since 2014A, and treated under the category of “Non-Proprietary Research”.

You can apply to this program after submitting relevant research proposals to the individual facilities and receiving acceptance. Alternatively, you may submit a proposal if you plan to submit the relevant proposals to the individual facilities in the future.

For information on how to submit your proposal to the individual facilities, please refer to the links below.

  1. JASRI for SPring-8 application
  2. CROSS for J-PARC MLF application
  3. RIST for the K computer application

2. Application Method

3. Proposal Review

 Per the explicit indication of proposals applying to this program, peer reviews are conducted for the scientific and technological significance, and the research strategy. Please click the following link for more details: http://sacla.xfel.jp/?p=1517&lang=en#8proposalreview.
 The proposals submitted to the other facilities will be reviewed independently by JASRI (SPring-8), CROSS (J-PARC MLF), and RIST (K-computer), respectively. An acceptance by one facility thus does not indicate the approval of others, i.e., each proposal will be independently evaluated for each program irrespective of the review results from the others.
