Notice of Intent to propose an SMA Large Scale Project
While Notices of Intent are accepted anytime,
the deadlines for consideration in the 2018A cycle are:
Notice of Intent: 15 January 2018
Full submission : 20 February 2018
For consideration in a given cycle,
this notice is required
ahead of full submission, in advance of the deadline for regular proposals for that semester, as part of our preparation for the process of reviewing large scale project proposals (more information is here).
Notices of Intent submitted here are for our informational purposes only and
are not considered binding. If you are even considering proposing a large
scale project, please submit this Notice. You are under no obligation to then submit a full proposal.
The project description in the NoI
must include a brief scientific justification, an estimate of the time and
observing conditions required to perform the observations and the rationale
for the use of the SMA as opposed to another facility. The list of expected
Co-I's is needed to avoid conflicts of interest in seeking expert reviewers.
Questions may be sent to sma [hyphen] largescale [at] cfa [dot] harvard [dot] edu.
You will have the opportunity to review your information before making your submission final.
