On 18th and 19th April 2023 the IRAM program committee met in Grenoble to discuss NOEMA and 30m proposals submitted for the summer semester 2023. The discussions were organized in two panels which were chaired by Natascha Foerster-Schreiber (MPE, Germany) and Dmitry Semenov (MPIA, Heidelberg, Germany). The authors of each proposal will be informed by letter which will include comments issued by the committee if there are any. As usual, the proposals were classified A (accepted), B (backup), and C (rejected).
You have to login to highlight your proposals (PI or Co-I) in the tables below.
We received 65 proposals for the 30m telescope. The total requested telescope time amounts to 2152 hours. This includes 12 proposals requesting short-spacing observations in 367 hours. About 82% of the requested time is dedicated to Galactic science.
The highest rating "A" was given to 13 proposals, and 20 proposals were rated "B", i.e. were given backup status. The remaining proposals, although scientifically valuable in most cases, were rated "C". The individual ratings are listed in the table below. We plan to schedule all A-rated proposals on the telescope, although some with less time than requested. We expect that about half of the B-rated programs will actually be scheduled. The selection will take into account scientific merit, crowding in certain right ascension ranges, and general aspects of balance. Proposals rated "C" will not get telescope time.
The short spacing proposals will be scheduled on the 30m if they get observed with NOEMA.
As had been announced in the last call for proposal, the servo system of the telescope is currently being upgraded. Science observations are planned to resume on best effort basis in early October.
A total of 79 proposals were received for the interferometer, including 1 proposals submitted in the "Large Program" category.
Proposals rated A will be scheduled in priority. Further time, if it becomes available, will go to the B programs, taking into account scientific merit, crowding in certain right ascension ranges and general aspects of balance.
For proposals rated A or B which do not have an IRAM internal collaborator, please consult the list of local contacts.
