The ALMA Director, on behalf of the partner organizations and all the personnel in Chile, East Asia, Europe, and North America involved in bringing ALMA to Early Science readiness, is pleased to issue the Cycle 2 Call for Proposals.

We invite members of the astronomy community to propose programs to be  scheduled within the ALMA Early Science Cycle 2 period which will start  in June 2014. This provides a new important opportunity for Early  Science from this cutting edge facility. The Cycle 2 period will span  17 months and users of any professional background, nationality, or  affiliation may submit proposals. It is anticipated that about 2000  hours of 12-m Array time and ACA time will be available for Cycle 2  projects and highest priority projects transferred from Cycle 1. A list  of the metadata from Cycle 1 proposals designated for transfer into  Cycle 2 has been posted to the ALMA Science Portal, so that Cycle 2  PIs can avoid duplicating these observations.

The ALMA Cycle 2 proposal submission deadline is 15:00 UT, 5 December  2013.

For details, please see the ALMA Call for Proposals:
