The Australia Telescope Users Committee (ATUC) is a sub-committee to the Australia Telescope Steering Committee. ATUC is a group of ten to fifteen scientists (the number varies from year to year) who represent the users of the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF). This committee is appointed by the ATNF Steering Committee and meets twice a year, usually around May and October. ATUC meetings are a forum for the ATNF users to raise any problems they have experienced with the operation of the facilities and to suggest changes to their operation; this discussion provides feedback for the ATNF management. ATUC also discusses and recommends priorities for ATNF future development plans.
