A total of 113 proposals were submitted for the deadline of Oct. 1997 (in addition to 15 short requests for discretionary time received between March and October 1997), 45 proposals were rated ``A'', 25 ``B'', the others ``C'' or ``D''. All the ``A'' and about half of the ``B'' programmes will actually get time on the telescope, some, however, with less time than requested. The telescope schedule is made until mid April; the programme PIs have been or are being notified.
Principal Investigators of accepted proposals receive with the telescope schedule a Confirmation of Observing Time form which we ask you to return, properly filled, by Fax to IRAM Granada and IRAM Grenoble (Scientific Secretariat, Fax (33/0) 476 42 54 69, attention Mrs. A. Jost). The list of frequencies to be observed (normally, the same as in the proposal) should arrive in Granada at least two weeks in advance. It is also only after we receive your confirmation in Grenoble that we will send out duly signed mission forms to those of you entitled to travel reimbursement.
If you have questions, please contact Mrs. A. Jost at IRAM Grenoble.
