October 2019 Call for Proposals

Gemini North and South are accepting proposals for the Fast Turnaround (FT) program. Here, we give information specific to this proposal cycle. Please see the other FT pages - particularly the rules - for general information about the program. FT-specific proposal templates must now be used for all FT proposals; see the "PIT information" section below. The revised 2019B PIT must be used.

Important dates

  • Proposal deadline: 23:59, Hawaiian Standard Time (HST), October 31.
  • Please ensure the latest version of the 19B PIT is used for submission.
  • Reviews must be complete by 23:59 HST, Nov 14. If you have submitted a proposal, but by the 2nd of the month have not received an email from FT regarding reviewing proposals, contact FT as soon as possible.
  • Results will be announced by Nov 21.
  • The deadline for preparing observations (Phase II) is Nov 30. Accepted programs meeting this deadline will be active from 1 December 2019 until 29 February 2020.
  • FT observations will be merged with the queue and observed on queue nights.


Eligibility

  • PIs from all participant countries taking part in the FT program may apply for this cycle.
  • We further welcome Japanese community PI proposals.
  • PIs from participant countries whose FT time for the semester has been used up should not apply for the remainder of the semester. Note that some participant countries only have very small amounts of FT time available each semester.  For GS in 19B, CA has only about 8.6hrs remaining and KR has only 3 hrs remaining.  For GN, KR has only 3.3hrs remaining. See Rule #4 and Q&A for more information.


Acceptable RA ranges

  • Gemini North: Targets from about RA = 21.5 hr to 17.5 hr are acceptable during this cycle. Note, however, that RAs near 21.5 will only be accessible for a couple hours during the first half of the first month (Oct) and only at northern declinations (Dec> 0) . Likewise, RAs near 17.5 will only be accessible for a few hours during the final month (Dec) and again only in the above declination range. Note Rule #9; an FT program may not fully backload its three-month active period; at least one of its targets must be observable during its first active month.
  • Gemini South: Targets from about RA = 22.5 hr to 17.5 hrs are acceptable during this cycle . Note, however, that RAs near 22.5 will only be accessible for a few hours during the first half of the first month (Oct) and only at favorable declinations (Dec < 0) . Likewise, RAs near 17.5 will only be accessible for a few hours during the second half of the final month (Dec) and again only in the above declination range. Note Rule #9; an FT program may not fully backload its three-month active period; at least one of its targets must be observable during its first active month.

  • Gemini North: Targets from about RA = 12 hrs to 5 hr are acceptable during this cycle. Also note that RAs near 12 hrs will only be accessible for a couple hours during the first half of the first month (July) and only at northern declinations ( Dec> 0). Likewise, RAs near 5 hr will only be accessible for a few hours during the final month (September) and again only in the above declination range. Note Rule #9; an FT program may not fully backload its three-month active period; at least one of its targets must be observable during its first active month.
  • Gemini South: Targets from about RA = 11 hr to 5 hrs are acceptable during this cycle. Note, however, that RAs near 11 will only be accessible for a few hours during the first half of the first month (July) and only at favorable declinations (Dec < 0) . Likewise, RAs near 5 will only be accessible for a few hours during the second half of the final month (September) and again only in the above declination range. Note Rule #9; an FT program may not fully backload its three-month active period; at least one of its targets must be observable during its first active month.
