Call for proposals

The Call for Proposals for the winter semester 2020/2021 is available here (pdf file). This document describes the  proposal submission procedure. A detailed description of the observing capabilities of the 30m telescope and the current status of the NOEMA interferometer are given in separate documents.

Proposals should be submitted through the Proposal Management System (PMS) at More details on the proposal submission procedure with PMS are available in the Call for Proposals and on the IRAM web pages. Note that this tool is straight-forward to handle, yet we urge proposers to start preparing their proposals well before the deadline. This semester, PMS will be opened about 2 weeks before the deadline.

Please also take note of the IRAM data policy.

Finally, note that we encourage the submission of Large Programs that require more than 100 hours of observing time and that address strategic scientific issues, using the 30m telescope with EMIR. Following the successful installation and commissioning of the PolyFiX correlator, Large Programs will be also accepted for NOEMA during the current Call for Proposals. However, certain restrictions are put in place to account for the ongoing, significant investment of technical time that is still needed for the NOEMA project.
