Call for Proposals for the LNLS beamlines

Research proposals are submitted through the SAU Online portal

Call for Proposals is open for the LNLS beamlines (see list below).

Submission period: March 01st to 31st, 2017.
BeamtimeSecond Semester 2017.

Research proposals are submitted through the SAU Online portal. Learn more about the Submission process here.

SAU Online is also the interface for giving Feedback on infrastructure and services, to submit Experimental Reports and to update Publications related to research developed with the use of LNLS beamlines. LNLS users willing to submit/participate in a new proposal should know that Experimental Reports and published work using the LNLS beamlines are important criteria during the Proposal Review Panel. All users are asked to submit reports and update publications by going to SAU Online prior to the submission. In order to be associated to any proposal, published work has to be checked by our librarians and beamline coordinators. This procedure takes at least one week. We advise you to update your publications in advance.
