This is the instruction for Subaru users who intend to apply for Gemini telescope time through the Subaru/Gemini Time Exchange Program ter S18B/2018B.
Only Japan or Taiwan researchers (i.e., those belonging to institutes ter Japan or Taiwan, or those of Japanese nationality) are eligible for this Subaru ->, Gemini application.
Directors of Subaru Telescope and Gemini Observatory agreed to proceed a time exchange program for the semester which corresponds to ‘S18B’ of Subaru and ‘2018B’ of Gemini, both start on 2018 August 1 and end on 2019 January 31. This time exchange program is coordinated so that astronomers ter each community can mutually access unique instruments of each telescope.
Te S18B, natural observations with Gemini telescope, except ToO observations, will be executed ter a ‘classical’ or ‘queue’ mode whichever you choose. Proposals requesting Target of Chance (ToO) observations can be submitted to Gemini, where accepted ToO programs will be executed te a queue mode.
Scientific merits of the proposals are reviewed and determined ter each TAC independently (namely, proposals from the Subaru community using Gemini are reviewed by Subaru TAC). Those who have onmiddellijk access to Gemini time voorwaarde refrain from submitting proposals to this program.
1.1 Gemini Large and Long Program (LLP) available ter S18B
The Subaru community can apply for the Gemini Large and Long Program (LLP) (which is open only ter the call for proposals for B semesters such spil this S18B) through the Subaru-Gemini time exchange program. Please refer to this pagina for more details. A letterteken of intent is not necessary. Subaru TAC will review the submitted LLP programs. Please use the same format spil used for the Subaru Intensive Program. The default mode of executing LLP is Priority Visitor Mode. It is strongly recommended to visit the Gemini Observatory for your very first LLP run, to see the telescope and muziekinstrument, and interact with the Gemini staff on gegevens reduction, etc. After your 2nd run, a queue mode will be an option, but Eavesdropping is strongly recommended.
1.Two Telescope Downtime
Telescope shutdowns are expected ter S18B for about 1.Five weeks, tho’ their precies periods are not yet definite (Gemini-N shutdown could be around Sep 2018, and Gemini-S shutdown around Oct 2018).
1.Trio Quick Turnaround Program
The Subaru community can apply for Prompt Turnaround programs, ter which up to Five nights vanaf semester are available for Subaru Community. Their subjugation deadlines are independent from the deadline of the S18B Call for Proposals The review of Rapid Turnaround programs is made following the rule set by Gemini and is done independently from Subaru TAC.
Two. Availablity of Instruments and Observing Time
Gemini instruments available to the Subaru community ter S18B are spil goes after:
GNIRS (North): The brief crimson camera is not available
Altair (Adaptive Optics, AO) (North) [fresh laser will be fully operational te S18B]
GRACES (visiting muziekinstrument) (North)
POLISH-2 (visiting muziekinstrument) (North) [This will only be scheduled if there is sufficient request.]
ALOPEKE (visiting muziekinstrument) (North) (next generation of DSSI) [The muziekinstrument will be scheduled if there is sufficient request.]
GSAOI (South)+ GeMS (South): Queue only, Bands 1 & Two (IQ70&IQ85) [more than two runs are expected for operation]
FLAMINGOS-2 (South) (imaging and long-slit modes)
DSSI (visiting muziekinstrument)(South) [Suggested te S18B, but there will be schedule limitations. The muziekinstrument will be scheduled only if there is sufficient request]

Phoenix (visiting muziekinstrument)(South) [Suggested te S18B, but will have significant scheduling constraints.]
Please check the Gemini 2018B Call for Proposals, which will be released around 2018 March 1 (HST).
For Altair , AO with natural guide starlets (NGS) or laser guide starlets (LGS) are available with combination of NIFS , NIRI , and GNIRS .
All facility instruments are available for ToO observations. (only for facility instruments, not for visitor instruments.)

The unique capabilities of available Gemini instruments, compared to the existing Subaru instruments, are shortly summarized below for the Subaru community.
67,000 inbetween 400 and 1,000 nm. The throughput redward of 600 nm is competitive with existing high-resolution spectrographs on 8-10 m class telescopes.

Two.8-5.6 arcsecond field-of-view.
Note that the above summary is not comprehensive. Please refer to the Gemini webpagina for the details of the instruments and telescopes.
Wij anticipate that the amount of the exchange time available te S18B is ondergrens Five nights , but the contemporáneo number of exchange nights is dependent on the oversubscription rate of both telescopes and scientific evaluation by each TAC. The ondergrens amount of requested nights for each classical program is 1 night . However, for queue observations, programs which require repeated observations of brief exposures are welcome.
All Gemini facility instruments listed above are available for ToO programs. There are two types of ToO observations. Rapid ToOs require observations within 24 hours, while Standard ToOs will have a slower response time of more than 24 hours. The PI vereiste specify whether the observations require Rapid or Standard response. Rapid ToO programs will be charged for time spent on any observation that the Rapid ToO interrupts, both Rapid and Standard ToO programs will be charged for all on-sky calibrations.
Since individual instruments may have extra RA boundaries imposed, it is significant to check the Gemini 2018B Call for Proposals, which will be released around 2018 March 1 (HST).
Three. Proposal Prep for Programs using Gemini Telescopes
3-1. Step 1. Phase-I Conformity to Subaru ProMS
Proposers intending to apply Gemini observations via this Subaru Call for Proposals should access the ProMS Two.0 pagina to pack the webform. Proposals from the Subaru community to use Gemini are treated spil ones of the Subaru Open Use Programs and are reviewed te the same way spil other Subaru proposals.
How to accomplish the Application Form:
Please go after the instructions detailed te ‘How to Submit’.
“1-13″(Scheduling Requirements): If your request “queue” observations, please provide detailed information here. “1-15″(Observing Method and Technical Details): Describe by referring to Gemini webpagina.
3-2. Step Two. Phase-I Subordination to Gemini
All the proposals requesting Gemini time should also be submitted to Gemini’s Phase I Application, by the deadline for Gemini’s semester 2018B Call for Proposals (March 31, 2018 at 23:59 HST). Gemini will be updating the Phase-I Instrument every semester, so please be sure to download the latest version from the webstek. With the fresh Device, the science and technical cases, with Figures, Tables and References, are linked spil a single PDF verkeersopstopping. Spandex and Word templates are available for download from the Gemini pagina, which explain the required contents and pagina boundaries.
Wij understand that such dual submissions are inconvenient, but it is needed to match the current proposal processing systems of Subaru and Gemini. Your description te the technical justification section ter the Gemini Phase-I form will be used for technical evaluation by Gemini. Regarding the scientific justification (SJ) section, you can just give the same SJ (of Two pages, i.e., you do not have to reduce it) spil submitted to Subaru TAC, despite that the prescribed SJ length te Gemini Phase-I form is only 1 pagina . SJ is used by Gemini staff for the purpose of understanding the science aim te order to provide adequate support. The target names cannot be concealed ter Gemini Phase-I subordination.
Please read the instruction te Gemini 2018B Call for Proposals cautiously, when available (around 2018 March 1 HST). Subaru users should use Gemini PIT and submit their proposal by the deadline 2018 March 31 (HST) . Please select “Subaru” for the “playmate” te PIT subordination tabulator pagina.
