Call for Proposals for GEMINI 2022A and SUBARU Exchange-time

The Gemini 2022A Call for Proposals has now been released, and Canadian specific information for Phase 1 can be found at:

https://nrc.canada.ca/index.php/en/research-development/products-services/technical-advisory-services/gemini-canadian-specific-information-phase-i

The deadline is: Friday October 1st, 2021, at 4pm (PDT)/ 7pm (EDT)

This semester Canada will have access to 188 hours on the North and 192 hours on the South. Please consider submitting programs with relaxed observing conditions, suitable for Band3, even if they will take longer to execute to get to the same S/N.

What’s New for 2022A:

  • PLEASE NOTE: Canada has now moved to a dual-anonymous review process (DARP) for proposals for this semester 2022A. Please follow the DARP guidelines to write an anonymous proposal (see the link in the Call above). This applies to all proposals even those not led by a Canadian, so please make sure to warn your PI.
  • The Priority Visitor mode and Classical mode will be offered for semester 2022A at Gemini-North, but not at Gemini-South. This may change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. Users are encouraged to use the Remote Eavesdropping mode for all queue programs.

For semester 2022A (1 February 2022 to 31 July 2022) the full instrument suite available on Gemini-North is: GMOS-N, GNIRS, NIRI, NIFS, and Altair. The Visitor instruments offered on Gemini-North are: GRACES, ALOPEKE, POLISH-2 and MAROON-X.

And on Gemini-South: GMOS-S, Flamingos-2, GSAOI + GeMs; and the Visitor instruments Zorro and IGRINS.

A guaranteed minimum of 5 classical nights will be available on Subaru. The instruments available are: AO188 (but no LGS-AO), FOCAS, HDS, IRCS, and Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC). Many visitor instruments are also available, please see the call. You must request half nights or full nights, except for HSC now taking programs in queue mode.

Good luck!
