      • VLBA and HSA proposals, including VLBA+Effelsberg proposals, must be prepared and submitted using the Proposal Submission Tool. Note that email submission of VLBA+Effelsberg proposals should no longer be used since these will in future be handled as a subset of the HSA.

      • Submissions by email, fax, or paper will not be considered.
