The INTEGRAL Users Group (IUG)

Introduction and background

In 2005, ESA decided to set up an INTEGRAL Users' Group (IUG) in parallel to the already existing INTEGRAL Science Working Team (ISWT) for the extended mission. As a consequence of the termination of the Core Programme beyond 2008, however, one of the main tasks of the ISWT ("Establish and optimize the Core Programme") vanished, and the IUG and ISWT teams have been merged, in November 2007, into one IUG. After 12 years, the ISWT has been formally dissolved and its members (see below) have been transferred to the new IUG. It shall be noted in particular that the roles and responsibilities for PIs (instruments and ISDC) and Mission Scientists throughout the entire mission, as described in the Science Management Plan remain unchanged. To reach the INTEGRAL Users Group please contact the IUG Chair.

Mission Extension 2012

In 2012, the IUG made a major contribution to the new request for INTEGRAL's extension of science operations beyond 31 December 2012, by establishing a set of documents which can be downloaded here.

The request to confirm INTEGRAL operations from 1 January 2013 until 31 December 2014 was approved by ESA's Science Programme Committee (SPC) in November 2012. During a meeting on 18 & 19 June 2013, the Science Programme Committee (SPC) approved the indicative extension of science operations for INTEGRAL until 31 December 2016, subject to a mid-term review in Fall 2014.
