User Committee

The User Committee represents the ISIS user community on all aspects of ISIS operations.

Committee members are drawn from ISIS user groups and ISIS senior managers. Users may pass any comments or concerns they have about ISIS to the user group representatives or contact the Chairman of the ISIS User Committee, Jon Goff.

The ISIS User Committee (IUC) terms of reference can be found here.
