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 20 March to  21 September 2017 are solicited.

Detailed information can be found in the Call for Proposals. Please note that due to major upgrades of the antenna that will be implemented later in the year, this will be the only call for 2017.

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 by Thurday, 23 February 2017 (20:00 CET). 

The next deadline for the first half of the 2018 observing runs is foreseen for  March 2018.
