Call for Proposals: User proposals for ATF beam time are now being accepted for Calendar Year 2023. To ensure full evaluation, interested researchers should submit their proposals by Friday, February 10, 2023, 5:00 pm, EDT. For detailed information regarding proposal submission, proposal categories, and the beam time request process, please visit the ATF User Access Page.

The UED Facility will separate from DOE-SC User Facility operations effective April 1, 2023 and proposals are no longer being accepted for that facility as part of the ATF proposal call. The UED facility will resume operations as a non-designated user facility later in the year with a separate proposal submission mechanism.

This will be an in-person meeting with limited ZOOM support for remote presenters and registered attendees.


The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) is a DOE Office of Science User Facility that provides users with high-brightness electron- and laser-beams, and ultrafast electron diffraction capabilities. The ATF has provided a facility for users to study the properties of modern accelerators and new techniques of particle acceleration and radiation generation for over 25 years. It is the designated user facility for the Accelerator Stewardship Program.

During the meeting, the ATF Program Advisory Committee (APAC) will review the progress of the ongoing user experimental program and approve proposals for new experiments that are consistent with the ATF's mission within the Accelerator Stewardship Program.
