1. CALL FOR OBSERVING PROPOSALS FOR PERIOD 89


The Call for Proposals for observations at ESO telescopes during Period 89 (1 April - 30 September 2012) has been released.


Proposers are strongly encouraged to check the Call for news items and a description of instruments and policies. VISIR is undergoing a major upgrade and is only available in the second part of the period. ISAAC proposals are accepted on a limited basis as it is likely to be decommissioned in P89 to allow for the installation of SPHERE. NACO may be decommissioned at the end of the period in order to allow for the installation of MUSE.


In Period 89 there is also a final call for ESO/GTC proposals; details of the offered instrument modes are available.


The deadline for proposal submission for both the ESO and ESO/GTC cycles is 29 September 2011, 12:00 noon CEST. The full Call for Proposals and the ESOFORM electronic submission package can be obtained here.


In order to avoid last-minute problems, users are strongly encouraged to fully verify their proposal well ahead of its actual submission, using a preliminary version including all necessary technical information (see the ESOFORM manual for details).
