Membership of the INTEGRAL Users Group (IUG)
The IUG is composed of (i) external members, (ii) the chair of the Time Allocation Committee (TAC), (iii) members of the former ISWT, and (iv) ESA staff.
External IUG members should be active researchers in the field of high-energy astrophysics and be regularly using INTEGRAL scientific data. They should not formally be affiliated with INTEGRAL PI teams (neither instruments nor ISDC). The IUG chair is an external IUG member. From the beginning in 2005, when the IUG was formed, external members served on the IUG for a duration of two years.
However, for new memberships as of 2011, the term will be four years, with the term of the next IUG chair (starting in 2011) being two years, and then four years afterwards in order to preserve expertise. External IUG members are appointed by ESA's Director of Science, after consultation with the Astronomy Working Group, the outgoing IUG members and the Project Scientist.
- the chair of the Time Allocation Committee (TAC)
- IUG members from the former ISWT are:
The Co-PIs for IBIS and SPI, PIs for JEM-X, OMC, and ISDC, respectively; Mission Scientists and the Russian representative for the PROTON launcher.
- IUG members from ESA are:
The Project Scientist, his deputy, and the Mission Manager, as well as the INTEGRAL SOC Team Leader as secretary.
