The Student Observing Proposal
Part of the workshop experience is writing a proposal for the workshop observations. As a student,
you are responsible to:
- review material listed on the Things to Know page.
- join telecons, as scheduled below. Each telecon will have background reading and a series of questions.
The telecons are designed to prepare you for writing the telecon and the answers to the questions will help
form text for the proposal.
- contribute to writing and proofing the proposal draft

proposal instructions. We will not follow this 100%. Most notably,
you won't submit the proposal and it won't be refereed!

contains observing information.
This is a good place to look for information on what has been observed already,
