JWST Early Release Science Program: Pre-proposal Webinar

Pre-proposal Webinar: Feb. 7, 11a - 1p Eastern Time (US)
Notice of Intent Deadline: Mar 3, 2017 (Mandatory)
Call for Proposals Finalized: May 2017

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Director’s Discretionary Early Release Science (DD ERS) program. The initial DD ERS Call for Proposals is available at: http://j.tinyurl.com/hjt3u7e. The DD ERS program is intended to support planning of Cycle 2 JWST proposals by providing example data sets to the community within 6 months of the start of science operations (c. May 1, 2019) . The JWST project encourages submission of DD ERS proposals for all science themes, including Solar System science. Proposals should address a broad range of applications and observing modes relevant to their relevant theme. Participation in the program is open to all categories of organizations, both domestic and foreign, including educational institutions, profit and nonprofit organizations, NASA Centers, and other Government agencies.

STScI will host an initial webinar to help inform the community about the goals and requirements of the DD ERS program and JWST capabilities, and encourage submission of proposals. Additional webinars will be scheduled as needed depending on interest expressed at the first.
