As many members of the IRAM user community have noticed, there are currently two IRAM Grenoble web sites: the old, official http://iram.fr and the new http://www.iram.fr. This site includes in its http://www.iram.fr/IRAMES structure a mirror of the IRAM Granada web site http://www.iram.es/IRAMES, which is updated twice per day. On its turn, the Granada server mirrors the http://www.iram.fr/IRAMFR pages in its http://www.iram.es/IRAMFR pages.
The status of the new IRAM Grenoble pages is such that the site is in most aspects equivalent or more complete than the old one. In one important point, however, the new site is still behind: in the matter of CGI scripts which are essential for on-line forms such as the Grenoble proposal submission facility and the Grenoble mirror of the 30-m telescope time estimator.
Although we are confident that we can solve the remaining problems before the proposal deadline, we prefer to delay the change from iram.fr to www.iram.fr until after September 12th, 2002 17:00h (MET) to avoid last-minute problems with the submission facility.
For these reasons, please use the 30-m time estimator following the links on the spanish web site http://www.iram.es/IRAMES , and submit your proposal(s) with the submission facility on the old Grenoble site http://iram.fr/submission/submission.html . If you encounter problems with the new pages, do not hesitate to contact the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org).
