A separate LATEX template for Filler Queue Mode will be available.
Inside the ProMS system, the filler QM proposals can be selected from
the field “Service program” (Fig. 2.3). The template itself is
however quite different (Fig. 2.4, right), and no scientific
justification is required for HSC QM fillers.
Boxes 1 (Title), 2 (Investigators), 5 (Targets) and 6 (Archive) are the
same as for other kinds of applications. The Abstract in box 3 should
briefly describe the scientific aim and methods. In box 4 “Observing Run”
one should select “HSC' as the instrument, specify the number of requested hours (), and
set the transparency, seeing, and filters.
Time-critical programs may be
acceptable as Fillers, but the chance of OB execution might be small
unless the PI sets very relaxed time constraints.
Since ProMS cannot accept proposals with identical title,
the PIs submitting filler proposals which have similar scientific objectives
to their Normal or Intensive proposals have to use a different title.
