In 2005 the DESY Directorate established a Beamtime Allocation
Committee (BAC) for FLASH which collects beamtime requests, discusses
priorities, and makes a proposal for the beamtime allocation.
Members of the BAC include representatives from the users of the FEL radiation, the European XFEL and the Linear Collider Effort (ILC).
Beamtime topics are:
- FEL user operation
- FLASH machine and photon beamline studies
- User run preparation
- Accelerator R&D
