October 22, 2021

Gemini North and South are accepting proposals for the Fast Turnaround (FT) program. The upcoming deadline is 23:59 Hawai‘i Standard Time on 31 October 2021. Successful proposals from this cycle will be active in the Queue from December to February 2022. Please check the 21B (and 22A when available) telescope semester schedules for Gemini North and South and the detailed instrument availability for this period.

The FT program has been used to conduct pilot studies, complete observations for existing data sets, follow-up on newly discovered objects, and much more. Proposers will have two weeks to peer review up to eight other proposals and results will be announced around the 21st of the month. Data for successful programs can be obtained as early as a week or two after that. The FT program uses a dual anonymous proposal review process (DARP). Proposals must use the FT DARP proposal templates and be anonymized as described in the Call for Proposals here.
