AAL is pleased to announce a new Call for Large Program Proposals at the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT), to commence from Semester 2021B onwards receiving an initial allocation of time up to the end of 2025A, but noting that allocations may need to be reviewed subject to the funding available to the AAT Council after June 2022.

All proposals should be submitted to ATAC by 16 March 2021 at 17:00 (AEDT; UTC + 11 hrs) using AAT’s online application system Lens, which will open on 1 March 2021. The Lens system has recently been transitioned into Data Central. Any issues should be reported to Simon O’Toole. For additional user support please contact Shona Madoc, AAL Program Administrator.

Ambitious projects are encouraged – in past semesters, Large Programs have been allocated almost 50% of the available time. Existing AAT Large Program commitments are listed here
​Proposers should also familiarise themselves with ATAC’s Policies and Procedures, listed here

Those interested in submitting a Large Program should contact the SSO Director. Other general enquiries can be directed to the AAL Program Manager for the AAT, Dr Lucyna Kedziora-Chudczer.
