The Korean VLBI Network (KVN) invites scientific proposals for single dish observations for the 2021B season from Korean astronomical community. Observations of successful proposals will be scheduled between 2021 September 1 and 2022 January 15. Proposals should be submitted via the KVN website (http://kvn.kasi.re.kr) before the deadline of UT 08:00 (KST 17:00) on 2021 June 1.

The Korean VLBI Network (KVN) is operated by Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI, http://www.kasi.re.kr). Its three 21m radio telescopes are located in Seoul, Ulsan and Jeju Island. Both spectral and continuum observation modes are supported. Available frequency bands are K (18-26 GHz) and Q (35-50 GHz), extended-W (85-116 GHz), and D (125-142 GHz), and the simultaneous multi-frequency observing mode is supported. From 2021B season, the new backend system (GPU spectrometer) is implemented for shared risk observations. For each KVN telescope, 300 hours of single dish observation time is available for this call. Therefore, total available time for three KVN radio telescopes is about 900 hours.

Proposers should use the KVN single dish application form and carefully follow the instructions on the KVN website. The scientific and technical justification must be provided within 3 pages. Details of the information and current status of the KVN can be found in the KVN status report on the KVN website (http://kvn.kasi.re.kr).
