TRIUMF Users Group

What is TUG?

The TRIUMF Users Group (TUG) is an organization whose members (Users) have a special interest in the use of TRIUMF’s infrastructure and facilities for the purpose of conducting research, developing technology, utilizing resources (e.g., experimental facilities, access to rare isotope beams, etc.) and/or interacting with personnel. As such, for decades TUG has been the forum for users to liaise with TRIUMF Management.  In addition, TUG is an entity responsive to the representations of its members for offering advice and counsel to the TRIUMF management on operating policy and facilities.

Joining TUG

Becoming a member of the TRIUMF Users Group is free and is open to all TRIUMF users in all TRIUMF disciplines.
