The Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) has recently issued a Call for Reserved Time Proposals for Semester 2023A.

The proposal deadline for AAT Reserved Time in Semester 2023A (1 February 2023 – 31 July 2023) is 15 September 2022, at 17:00, Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC + 10 hrs).

AAT has changed the way it issues call for proposals – please read the following instructions carefully. The AAT will issue two separate calls in each observing semester, the Call for Reserved Time followed by the Call for Shared Time. For further information, please read the proposal web page or email any questions to [email protected].

Only astronomers and researchers affiliated with Partner institutions can be listed on proposals requesting Reserved and Shared time. Partners for 2023A are the Australian National University, Macquarie University, Monash University, University of Melbourne, University of New South Wales, University of Queensland, University of Southern Queensland, University of Swinburne, University of Sydney, University of Tasmania and Western Sydney University.

Night Availability

Each Partner institution has a different number of nights that can be allocated for the Reserved time proposals.

Proposals for Reserved time must be approved by the Partner institute of the PI and all other Partner institutions involved in the proposal before the proposals are submitted to the AAT’s online application system Lens. Each proposal must list the requested Reserved time for all Partner institutions in the table provided in Lens. The observatory will reconcile this listing with the information about the total requested Reserved time from all Partners.

The rules for submitting proposals for Reserved time differ for each institute. Please see the proposal web page for more details on this and all other aspects of this Call.

Please direct any enquiries to the ATAC Secretariat ([email protected]) or AAL Program Manager Dr Lucyna Kedziora-Chudczer ([email protected]).
