Results of the 2014 Key Project Allocation

Last week the LCOGT Science Advisory Committee met, and, among other activities, reviewed the key project proposals. We had received 11 proposals, and the total amount of time requested was move than 17,000 hours on the 1m network and about 1700 hours on the 2m network. Although the pool for key project proposals (half of the yearly LCOGT hours) is about 6000 1m hours and 1200 2m hours, I wanted to allocate no more than half of these hours in the first call. This limitation is, in part, so that we can have at least one more call next year and allow additional programs to start, and, in part, so that we can lower the oversubscription seen by the scheduling software, with the goal of executing nearly all of the requested observations.I am pleased to announce that the following programs have received LCOGT network time.
