Information for Proposers

Proposals for access to LDT nights under Boston University’s guaranteed 40 nights per year are handled by the BU LDT Time Allocation Committee (BU-LTAC), which is chaired by the Director of the Institute for Astrophysical Research, Professor Elizabeth Blanton.

She will issues calls for BU internal proposals twice per year, in advance of the Lowell deadline, the BU-LTAC will meet to consider and rank proposals, and the rankings will be conveyed to the Lowell scheduler for the LDT.

The next semester for which new observations can be proposed is 2022a.
