During the initial 5-year period of 4MOST operations, 30% of the total available observing time will be available to the ESO community. The process of selecting the surveys to be executed during this time was kicked off by ESO on 26 November 2019 by issuing a Call for Letters of Intent for Public Spectroscopic Surveys with 4MOST (see also this announcement).
The submission deadline is 28 February 2020, 12:00 CET.
Note that letters of intent for 4MOST Community Surveys should be submitted in PDF format only to the following email: email@example.com. Please consult the Call for Proposals webpage and the 4MOST Public Survey policies for more information.
