JINR Programme Advisory Committees

The Programme Advisory Committees (PACs) are advisory bodies to the JINR Directorate and to the JINR Scientific Council in specific fields of research: Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Condensed Matter Physics. The Programme Advisory Committees: consider proposals for experimental projects of JINR, at JINR facilities as well as at facilities of other research laboratories; review the progress of on-going projects; review projects for the development and upgrading of the JINR facilities. PACs submit their recommendations to the JINR Director. Traditionally poster sessions are held in the frames of the PACs meetings to allow young scientists present results of their research.
