ALMA Cycle 2 Notices of Intent Are Encouraged

Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 11:37

This item is posted on behalf of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA):

The Joint ALMA Observatory (JAO) expects to start the next cycle of early science observations (Cycle 2) in June 2014. A call for proposals will be issued at the end of October 2013, with an anticipated deadline for proposal submission in early December 2013. Cycle 2 operations will be conducted on a best efforts basis, similar to the current Cycle 1 and the past Cycle 0 observations.

To help ensure that the observatory is prepared to assess the proposals submitted for Cycle 2, principal investigators are strongly encouraged to submit a notice of intent by 15:00 UT on 10 October using our web form.

One form should be completed and submitted for each planned Cycle 2 proposal. This should not require more than a few minutes since the information to be provided is minimal. Notices of Intent are neither mandatory nor binding.
