XMM-Newton AO-10 OTAC Results
The list of XMM-Newton proposals accepted by the AO-10 Observing Time
Allocation Committee (OTAC) and the associated proposal abstracts are
The Principal Investigators of submitted proposals have been informed
by e-mail about the results of the OTAC evaluation. The e-mail
contains the details about the second phase proposal submission for
successful observations, which must be done via the XMM-Newton Remote
Proposal Submission System (XRPS). The XRPS will be closed on the 4th
of February 2011 at 13:00 UT.
In AO-10 proposers were asked for the third time to submit very large
programs (VLPs). Of the six VLPs that were submitted, OTAC has
accepted one with 3 Ms of observing time (proposals 067166, 067167 and
067169). In combination with existing archival data, the program aims
at covering two areas of the sky of 25 square degrees each with 10 ks
exposures, for cosmological studies. This program will be carried out
over AO-10 and AO-11. With VLPs, the XMM-Newton project aims to
establish legacy-type data sets with the widest scientific impact.
The whole interested community is invited to explore and analyse the
data and, consequently, by default no proprietary rights are allocated
to data resulting from VLPs.
AO-10 observations will start to be routinely performed in May 2011.
