User guide

Visitors Club

The ILL Visitors Club provides online access to all the information and administrative tools for our scientific visitors, presented in a user friendly environment.


Before your visit

A new ILL User Club is being implemented
For the moment, it contains a limited number of functionalities, mainly connected to electronic proposal submission. This is also where you will create a new user account. Other functionalities will be soon available.

In the meantime, you can access them via the Visitors Club. Click here to sign in (with your old Visitors Club ID)

  • Registration - Once you receive your invitation, complete and submit your registration via the ILL Visitors Club as soon as possible, indicating the exact dates of your arrival and departure. Please register for all experiments you are attending. Please note that experiments start and finish at 8.30 a.m. - a 2-day experiment starting on 01/11/14 will end at 8.30 a.m. on 03/11/14.
  • Adding a new scientist to the experimental team

      All scientists must have a User Club account before they can be added to the team

      As a proposer you can then proceed in one of two ways:

    • If you have not yet registered for the experiment: you will be able to add a scientist via the Visitors Club  by clicking on “Register for experiment” and then clicking on “add a scientist”. You can only do this if the scientist has completed all his personal data in his VC account.
    • If you have already registered for the experiment or if the scientist’s account data is incomplete: please send an e-mail to sco(at) asking us to add the scientist to the experimental team giving the user's name and experiment number. We will send them an invitation so they can register.
  • Make sure that you are insured for illness, hospital treatment and industrial accidents.
  • Ensure that the address of your local health physics/medical service of your workplace is up to date in your Visitors Club account. The ILL Health Physics service will send your radiation dose record to this address after your visit.
  • Wifi access on site: Don't forget to bring your Visitors Club login and password.
  • Safety training

Please complete the health physics training test in the Visitors Club.

If you plan to perform an experiment at the ILL you are obliged to take this test (valid for 6 months).

  • Site access - You will be asked to provide proof of identity (passport, ID card) to gain access to the ESRF/ILL/EMBL site.
