[Diamond logo]The prioritization process for the third tranche of beamlines is starting now, to be available in 2008.

Outline proposals for new beamlines are invited from the scientific community and from non-UK government and commercial organizations. The proposals can be for beamlines on insertion devices or bending magnets. Outlines should be no more than three sides of A4 and include: the science case; an outline specification of the beamline; and a summary of the community that would make use of the beamline. The deadline is November 1, 2002. Proposals submitted last year may be resubmitted.

A selection will be made and the successful proposers will be invited to submit a more detailed specification and costing by March 2003. Final selection of up to four beamlines will be made after May 2003.
