Here is the list of local contacts associated to PdBI projects rated A/B at the last program committee. Only projects without IRAM collaboration need a local contact.

Before a project starts, the local contact in link with the PI writes and checks the observing procedure: coordinates, velocities, frequencies, offsets for mosaics, correlator configurations. This point must be done in close cooperation with Roberto Neri who is responsible for the monitoring of PdBI observations.
When the project is near completion, with respect to the planning of visitors managed by Anne Dutrey, the local contact and the PI agree on the best date for data reduction.
Finally during the visit of the PI at Grenoble, the role of the local contact will be to provide expert help in the data reduction.
In order to have a feedback from external users, we are planning to implement project reports, one for data quality, the other about data reduction software. These reports will ask simple standard questions (answers by YES/NO, most of the time). They will help us to optimize PdBI observations and software interfaces. The PI will give the project reports to the local contact before he/she leaves Grenoble. Since the next observing session is starting at Bure, PI are requested to contact their local contact as soon as possible. A few practical points:
Our WEB page contains most of the information external users need in order to 1) check the status of their observations and 2) prepare their visit to Grenoble.
All these informations are given at the following address:
Special attention must be given to the ``visitor list'' ( http://iram.fr/PDBI/visitor.html) which contains the list of people coming to Grenoble for data reduction of Bure projects. To avoid overbooking the computer facilities, no more than two groups should reduce data simultaneously.
