Proposals of which principal investigator (PI) belongs to the Korean and Japanese institutes/universities can be accepted for the 2015A CfP, but proposers are not required to include collaborators from KVN/VERA projects as a co-investigator (CoI). From 2015A CfP, proposals from the PIs belonging to Chinese and Taiwanese institutes/universities are also accepted. They are strongly recommended to add at least one collaborator(s) belonging to either KVN or VERA project. Note that the KaVA observing sessions in 2015A will be carried out as risk-shared open use.
