The cut-off for consideration is the 14th day of each month. For example, requests for observations received between the 15th of June and the 14th of July will be presented and discussed at the monthly meeting held at the end of July.
It is recommended that proposers make their submissions as early as possible, so that the Science Schedule Coordinators (SSCs) have time to refine the proposals to fit the current Hinode situation.
Late submissions may be considered only exceptionally, if scheduling conflicts can be easily resolved in the operation planning meetings.
For more detailed information, refer to the following:
* The Hinode team will take into account the stated priorities if it is necessary to make adjustments to the proposed observations to fit in the day's available telemetry, etc.
* Specify which Hinode instruments are really required for the observation.
* Specify required observables (cadence, FOV vs pixel summation, wavelengths etc), with priorities, for the primary required Hinode instrument(s). - Provide rough estimate of the total data volume to be collected, if possible. See section 3 for estimating the total data collected.
* If support from non-primary Hinode instrument(s) is also desired, give a rough idea regarding preferable observables (cadence, FOV vs pixel summation, wavelengths etc).
* For IHOPs (IRIS/Hinode Operations Plans), specify the requirements for the IRIS observations, ideally with: - an IRIS OBS-ID (for details see https://www.lmsal.com/iris_science/doc?cmd=dcur&proj_num=IS0301&file_type=pdf) - alternatively, requirements for IRIS FOV, raster mode, raster cadence/exposure time, summing, slit-jaw choices
