NASA Astrophysics Strategic Missions Concept Study Conferences

Letter of Intent due: 20 September 2007
Pre-proposal Workshops October 4/5 (Greenbelt) and October 9/10 (Pasadena)

NASA has issued an amendment to Research Opportunities in Space and
Earth Sciences (ROSES) entitled "Astrophysics Strategic Mission
Concept Studies, for missions that may be carried out in the next
decade or for which technology development funding is sought in the
next decade. Study results are expected to be provided as input to
the upcoming 2010 Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey. Notices
of Intent to propose are due 20 September 2007, and proposals are
due 20 November 2007.

As these medium-class and large-class strategic missions will
ultimately be managed by a NASA Center, proposers are encouraged to
partner with a NASA Center to provide overall study management,
prior to submission of the proposal. To assist potential proposers, two
identical workshops will be held, in College Park, MD, 4-5 October;
and in Pasadena, CA, 9-10 October 2007. Proposers are not required
to participate in these workshops.  Attendees will learn about
available NASA Center resources and how they can be used to help develop
mission concepts. Registration for these workshops is via the web site

Concept Studies" in your web browser.
