CFHT Call for Proposals

The 2023B call for proposals is now closed. The call for 24A proposals will open around August 21st 2023. Stay tuned!

Kealahou K1 is the official Phase I tool for CFHT. For this call and all future calls, prospective users applying for NRC, CNRS, ASIAA, or NAOC agency time must do so through Kealahou K1 during each agency’s respective Call for Proposals. Additionally, prospective users applying for Director’s Discretionary Time must do so through Kealahou K1 via the Discretionary agency.

Prospective users applying for University of Hawai’i or the OPTICON-Radionet Pilot Trans-National Access programme time should continue to use their respective agency’s proposal submission tools.

The K1 Instructions provide general information about the QSO Mode, links to all instruments, their ETC, details of the overheads, and other important points specific to each instrument. Although the UI for K1 is quite intuitive, the tutorial includes login information for returning and new users, character limits and page limits for various sections, instructions on how to invite collaborators, and other details for each section within K1. Please note that proposals are available for viewing from within the K1 interface both prior to and after submission. Additionnally, K1 will generate PDF versions of your proposals which you can download for your personal records.

Lastly, Kealahou currently doesn’t offer Apple Safari browser support. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge are supported. We apologize for any inconvenience.
