2022B - 2024A CFHT Large Programs call


The Call for CFHT Large Programs for all the currently operating instruments is now open.

CFHT adapted the Northstar Phase 1 tool written initially for the Radionet community. Northstar has been ported to CFHT and modified in house to handle our specific requirements. You can access the CFHT Phase I tool during the call for Large Programs period and you need to select the Large Program agency.

It is mandatory that investigators interested in submitting a Large Program proposal submit a non-binding Letter of Intent. See the Implementation procedures for more details. The deadline for Letters of Intent is February 15, 2022 at 23:59 UT.

The deadline for proposals is March 31 2022 at 23:59 UT.
