This announcement is also available on the webpage (http://kvn.kasi.re.kr).
for Proposals 2020B
The Korean VLBI Network (KVN, http://kvn.kasi.re.kr/ ) invites key
science proposals. Principal investigators of the proposals should be
affiliated to Korean research institutes and universities. Observations will be
scheduled from 2020 August 15. Proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before
the deadline of UT 08:00 (KST 17:00) on 2020 January
15. The review results of the proposal will be announced until 2020
2. Important notes
1) The available frequency bands are 22/43/86/129
GHz in 8Gbps and in dual polarization.
2) The total available time for
all KSP proposals is around 1,000 hours per year.
3) The maximum requested time per a proposal is 500 hours per
4) The maximum duration of each proposal is 3 years. In case of
requesting a total period of more than 2 years, an intermediate evaluation will
be performed in late second year of the project.
5) The PI of each proposal is encouraged to establish a research
team consisting of experts in international community.
6) For proposals asking for a challenging research topic in
observational detection/mode of KVN, it is possible to request in the proposals
feasibility-test time (its length is not strictly limited but should be
reasonable) for the 2020A season (e.g., 2020 January 15~June 15). The proposal
may be accepted conditionally. The final decision of the proposal will be made
depending on the results of the feasibility test, whose reports should be
submitted to email@example.com no
later than 2020 June 30.
Preparation and Submission
The proposer should consult the webpage from here. All proposals
must be prepared using the KVN proposal form for VLBI observation or single
dish observation and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The scientific and technical
justification must be provided within maximum 6 pages. In addition, we strongly
recommend proposers to describe previous observations, publications, and
feasibility test results relevant to the proposals if any.
