While the state-of-the-art spectrometer is being developed, the NSF-NASA partnership will establish an exoplanet-related Guest Observer research program on the WIYN telescope with existing instrumentation at WIYN. Call for proposals are issued by NOAO and due on the normal semester schedule - Deadlines are the last day in September for the following “A” semester (February 1 – July 31) and the last day in March for the following “B” semester (August 1 – January 31). Proposal submission information can be found at http://ast.noao.edu/observing/proposal-info. NASA plans to provide modest funding to selected PIs to cover partial cost of travel, observation, data analysis and publication.
