Australian ESO Proposal Workshop 2022 

Dear colleagues,

Remarkably we are now halfway through the 10 year Strategic Partnership between Australia and ESO. While there have been some significant achievements already, including 4 successful Large Programme proposals and 6 papers in Nature or Science from Australian-led ESO programmes, a lot has changed since Period 101. The introduction of a new web-based p1 tool, Dual-Anonymous Peer Review, and most recently the use of Distributed Peer Review for smaller programmes have all changed the way we write proposals. In anticipation of the Period 111 proposal deadline at the end of September, AAL and Australia’s ESO Scientific Technical Committee and Users Committee representatives (Michael Murphy and Sarah Sweet, respectively) would like to invite our community to an on-line ESO proposal writing workshop to be held on Thursday 8 Sep from noon-2:30pm AEST (10am-12:30pm AWST). Topics to be covered include:
The Observing Programmes Committee Process
Summary of current and imminent ESO instrumentation
The Dual-Anonymous Proposal & Distributed Peer Review processes
followed by a round-table discussion involving a panel of major users of ESO and past OPC members about what makes a compelling proposal, and common mistakes to avoid. Participants will have the opportunity to pitch ideas for proposals to the panel for helpful feedback.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please register in advance by going to: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/slB9CL7EwMfPvjYKwTBSZB5?domain=us02web.zoom.us

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. A recording of the workshop will be made available afterwards upon request for anyone unable to join the event live.

If you have any questions about this workshop please contact Stuart.Ryder at astronomyaustralia.org.au

Kind regards,

Romy Pearse (for Stuart Ryder)
