Max Planck Society Call for APEX Proposals
The MPIfR has access to 45% of the observing time at the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope. Half of this time will be made available to the Max Planck Society (MPS) community, including MPIfR, and also to German universities and research institutes, all on a competitive basis.
In this call, proposals for APEX observing requests for the period from 21 May to 26 July 2018 are solicited.
Detailed information can be found in the Call for Proposals. Please note that due to major upgrades of the antenna and the ongoing commissioning, as well as ongoing work on a new suite of instruments, fewer instruments than in previous calls are offered. The situation will change for the second half of the year with a call for proposals foreseen in July.
Proposals should be submitted as a single PDF file using the latex templates provided here.
Deadline for submission of proposals:
All proposals should be sent to email@example.com by Friday, 13 April 2018 (20:00 CET).
The next deadline for the second half of the 2018 observing runs is foreseen for July 2018.
