Resolutions from the May 2014 Meeting of the ATLAS Users Group:

• The Users strongly support the development of accelerator- and equipment-related initiatives that will enhance the scientific reach and efficient utilization of the ATLAS facility. These initiatives include the upgrade of ATLAS to provide multi-user capabilities and the timely development of the AGFA and AIRIS instruments

• The Users strongly support the establishment of a Center for Accelerator Target Science (CATS) and urge the timely consideration of the CATS proposal submitted to the U. S. Department of Energy

• The Users strongly urge that sufficient support be provided for operations and staffing levels in order to efficiently utilize the ATLAS facility

• The Users strongly endorse the vision expressed in the draft ATLAS Strategic Plan for the future of the ATLAS facility
