Workshop FAQ

3. Is there a cost for the survey observations?

The selected surveys (whether or not associated with a new instrument) will be performed in service mode by the professional team of CAHA observers. So there is no cost for projects with PIs from CSIC or Junta de Andalucía. For other PIs, the cost will be discussed with the CAHA director and specified in the resulting MoU.

2. Available instruments for surveys

The instruments available for legacies on the 3.5-m telescope are the ones listed in

1. Is there a template for a proposal?

There is no dedicated template (feel free to use LaTeX, word, etc.), but any proposal of type 1 (resp. 2) submitted must fit in 6 (resp. 10) pages and must include the following sections:

1. Abstract
2. State of the art and scientific rationale
3. Justification of the requested observing time

In addition to this, type 2 proposals will have four additional pages to explain:

4. Technical description and capabilities of the instrument
5. Description of the consortium (institutions, people)

The .pdf of the proposal has to be sent by email (as an attachement) to workshop AT caha.es before the specified deadline.
