Australia Telescope Users Committee
The Australia Telescope Users Committee (ATUC) is a group of ten to fifteen scientists (the number varies from year to year) who represent the users of the Australia Telescope National Facility. This committee is appointed by the ATNF Steering Committee and meets twice a year, usually around May and October.
ATUC meetings are a forum for ATNF users to raise any problems they have experienced with the operation of the facilities and to suggest changes to their operation: this discussion provides feedback for the ATNF management. ATUC also discusses and recommends priorities for ATNF future development plans. If you have a matter you would like raised at an ATUC meeting, please contact one of the members, or fill in the online feedback form.
ATUC also request agenda items and report back to users on their meetings via 4 emails to a general list per year, generally before and after each ATUC meeting.
ATUC have terms of reference to operate under.
ATUC meetings generally occur in May and and October each year.
The most recent meeting was held on 25-26 October 2011.
