XMM-Newton AO-15 closure

The XMM-Newton fifteenth Announcement of Opportunity (AO-15) closed on
the 9th of October 2015.

In  total, 431  valid proposals  were submitted,  requesting 81 Ms of
science time. This Announcement of  Opportunity covers a period of one
year, with 14.5  Ms of observing time available  for distribution. The
over-subscription factor is 5.6.

A  total   of  47  proposals  for  Large   Programmes  were received.
Triggered/ToO observations  were requested  in 58 proposals.   For the
joint programmes,  77 proposals were submitted: 22  requested time for
the  XMM-HST programme,  10 for  the  XMM-SWIFT programme,  6 for the
XMM-VLT  programme, 5  for the  XMM-Chandra programme  and 43  for the
XMM-NuSTAR programme.

SOC received proposals from 328 different principal investigators from
31  countries, mostly  ESA member  and associated  states,  the United
States and Japan.  The number of countries involved increases to 42 if
co-investigators  are   taken  into  account   as  well. Considering
principal  investigators and  co-investigators, about  1500 individual
scientists were involved in the response to the fifteenth Announcement
of Opportunity.

Yours sincerely,
