The Advanced Photon Source (APS) is seeking user science proposals and requests for beam time on existing proposals. The submission deadline is Thursday, July 2, 2020, for the following:

  • New general user proposals (GUPs)
  • New beam time requests for APS run 2020-3 (10/1/2020 - 12/17/2020) on existing active proposals   
  • Partner user proposals (PUPs)
  • CAT member proposals
  • APS beamline staff proposals
  • CAT beamline staff proposals

APS is beginning to gradually expand the mail-in/remote access mode from the current only COVID-19-related work to any mail-in/remote access work involving low-risk samples and most medium-risk samples (as defined on the ESAF form). High-risk samples will not be permitted at this time reflecting the APS operational posture. For more information, see the APS website.  

Share this with collaborators who are new users: Please ask them to register to obtain a badge number for access to the proposal system early to avoid delays.

An APS badge number is required for proposal submission.  If you do not have a badge number, please register as a new user.

The GUP system will accept proposals and beam time requests until 11:59 p.m (CST) on Thursday, July 2, 2020. However, user office support will not be available after 5 p.m. that day. If you feel you may need help during the submission process, please create your proposal as early as possible.

For questions about the GUP system or the proposal submission process, email the program office.
