LETTER OF INTENT FOR MULTI-YEAR HERITAGE PROGRAMMES
In the next call for XMM-Newton proposals (20th Announcement of Opportunity) a "Multi-Year Heritage Programme" will be offered for the second time.
This programme seeks scientific visionary projects which require at least 2 Ms of observing time. A total of 6 Ms of observing time, spread over three years, is planned to be made available for this programme.
In order to organise the evaluation of "Multi-Year Heritage Programme" proposals, interested scientists are strongly urged to send an e-mail as letter of intent to the XMM-Newton Project Scientist (Norbert.Schartel + esa.int ) before 6 March 2020. The e-mail should contain a draft title, a short (up to three sentences) description of the respective scientific area and an estimate of the required observing time.
ANTICIPATED TIMELINE FOR NEXT XMM-NEWTON ANNOUNCEMENT OF OPPORTUNITY: AO-20
The planned key milestones for the Twentieth XMM-Newton "Announcement of Opportunity" have been established. Within this AO-20 a new call to submit proposals for observations to be performed with the XMM-Newton observatory will be issued
To be prepared for this, please find below the anticipated timeline:
|Announcement of Opportunity||18 August 2020|
|Due date for Proposals||9 October 2020 (12:00 UT)|
|Final OTAC approved programme||mid December 2020|
For approved proposals only:
|Start of Phase II proposal submission||11 January 2021|
|Closure of Phase II proposal submission||5 February 2021|
|Start of observations||May 2021|
The official "Announcement of Opportunity" will be made public in the XMM-Newton News and on the XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre Home Page.
LET US KNOW ABOUT XMM-NEWTON RELATED PH.D.
As already announced in previous issues of this Newsletter, the XMM-Newton team is collecting information about the completion of doctorates and Ph.D. theses based on (or making use of) XMM-Newton observations.
We would appreciate if you - being a candidate or a supervisor of a doctorate - could let us know details through the page
Also, we would be grateful if you could inform us (via a message to email@example.com, with subject "Ph.D. thesis work") in case you are aware of theses from, or supervised by, colleagues that make use of XMM-Newton data but are not yet included in the above list.
