The XMM-Newton twelfth Announcement of Opportunity (AO-12) closed on
the 5th of October 2012.
In total, 475 valid proposals were submitted, requesting 86.0 Ms of

year, with 14.5 Ms of observing time available for distribution. The
over-subscription factor is 5.9.
A total of 66 proposals for "Large Programmes" were received.
Triggered/ToO observations were requested in 57 proposals. For the
joint programmes, 43 proposals were submitted: 15 requested time for
the XMM-HST programme, 14 for the XMM-SWIFT programme, 9 for the
XMM-Chandra programme, and 8 for the XMM-VLT programme.
SOC received proposals from 364 different principal investigators from
24 countries, mostly ESA member states, the United States and Japan.
The number of countries involved increases to 38 if co-investigators
are taken into account as well. Considering principal investigators
