CCI INTERNATIONAL TIME (2005) CALL FOR PROPOSALS The International Scientific Committee (CCI) of the Roque de los Muchachos (ORM, La Palma) and Teide (OT, Tenerife) Observatories invites applications for International Time Programmes (ITP) on telescopes installed at these Observatories. The ITP offers up to 5% of the observing time on all the telescopes at the Canarian Observatories, evenly spread throughout the year and lunar phase. An ITP proposal can request observing time over a period of up to two years. Full details of the scheme for the night-time telescopes, and how to submit an application using the specific proposal form, can be found at http://www.iac.es/gabinete/cci/tinoc1.htm and an overview of the instrumentation offered on the ING telescopes is available at http://www.ing.iac.es/Astronomy/observing/instruments.html The closing date for submission of proposals to the 2005 ITP is Feb. 28, for projects which may start during the fall of the same year. The aim of the ITP is to encourage large-scale international scientific projects of the highest quality, which cannot easily be accommodated within other time allocation schemes. Proposals should be international in their range of participants, and are expected to involve astronomers from at least two of the European countries that have signed the Agreements for Cooperation in Astrophysics. They can include astronomers from scientific institutions in any of the countries associated with the EC’s Framework Programmes and may entitle them to reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs related to their participation in the observing programme. Moreover, such proposals can include astronomers from scientific institutions from any other country in the world, but this does not entail the right to reimbursement of their expenses. The observing programmes should concentrate on a single large-scale astronomical investigation. Proposals that would benefit from the use of more than one facility, and which would be unlikely to obtain the necessary observing time through the usual time allocation panels because of the scale of the project, or because of the difficulty to coordinate several telescopes, are especially encouraged. However, collaborative international projects that require the use of a single facility are also welcome.
