Notice of Intent to propose an SMA Large Scale Project

While Notices of Intent are accepted anytime, the deadlines for consideration in the 2019A cycle are:

Notice of Intent: 10 January 2019
Full submission : 13 (US)/14 (Taiwan) February 2019 (NOTE: this was changed from 7 Feb to accomodate the Chinese New Year holiday period)

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.
