Beam shifts are organized in 3 periods: owl (midnight-8am/00:00-08:00), day
(8am-4pm/08:00-16:00) and swing (4pm to midnight/16:00-14:00) shifts.
Shutdown shifts are from 09:00 to 09:00.
Complete details are found in the shifter link.
Each person (not institution) will be awarded points for doing shifts.
People with high points will be praised (and rewarded with food/drink),
people with low points will be encouraged to take more shifts.
Here are the points earned/shift:
Please arrive at least 10 MINUTES BEFORE the start of your shift in order to debrief the previous shifter.
There is a reserved parking slot at the west side of HiRise for the MiniBooNE shifter.
Training is held in the MiniBooNE control room. New shifters should take two day shifts (08:00 - 16:00) as their first set of shifts (M -F, if possible).
Shift taking is a PERSONAL rather than institution responsibility. You can see the shift statistics by individual from previous months here. Individuals with low or no points should sign up for shifts more often so we can reach a more uniform shift load.
A web based shift sign-up form is available. A few comments:
