The purpose of ADACS Time Allocation Committee (ADACS TAC) is to allocate data and computing expert service resources to the astronomy community, primarily through a call for applications and a merit-based evaluation of those applications.
It is envisaged that the ADACS TAC meets and allocates time twice per year as a minimum or as demand requires, via video conferencing. ADACS may request advice from the ADACS TAC on out-of-session applications or on related matters if such a need arises.
Members of ADACS TAC are appointed by the AAL Board via an application process (organised by AAL) and are installed for a two-year fixed term, with the possibility of renewal. In addition:
ADACS will provide administrative, logistical, and secretarial support for the ADACS TAC. ADACS is funded by and reports to the AAL Board through an AAL appointed committee.
