Max Planck Society Call for APEX Proposals    

The MPIfR has access to 49% 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 28 April to  13 August 2020 are solicited.

Detailed information can be found in the Call for Proposals.

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 Thursday, 19 March 2020 (20:00 CET). 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic APEX science operations have been stopped in March. Successful proposal from the March 2020 deadline will be carried over into the fall semester.  The next deadline is foreseen for February 2021.
