The Optical Infrared Co-ordination Network for Astronomy (OPTICON) has issued its call for proposals for semester 2016B. The Liverpool Telescope (LT) is part of this consortium of observatories, and we have made available fifty hours of telescope time to be used in our semester 16B, which runs from 1st July 2016 to 28th February 2017 inclusive.
The deadline for proposal submissions is 23:59 UT on 2nd March 2016. Technical support for the submission software is not provided out-of-hours and late applications will not be accepted, so please complete your application in plenty of time. Full details of this 2016B Call for Proposals, including instructions on registration and submission of your proposal, can be found on the OPTICON Trans-National Access programme page, at http://www.astro-opticon.org/fp7-2/tna/opticon_call_new.html.
Proposals must meet certain EU and OPTICON rules for formal eligibility concerning team membership. Please pay attention to those rules or your proposal will be rejected without any scientific evaluation. The PI and at least half of the Co-Is must be working at institutions from EU member states or EU associated countries but which are outside the United Kingdom.
Full details of the LT's current instrumentation and capabilities can be found elsewhere on this site, but to get started, your attention is drawn particularly to our Telescope Specification, Instruments, and Phase 1 sections.
