The Chandra X-ray Center welcomes visits to the CXC for the purpose of collaboration on specific research projects with CXC scientific staff. Limited funding to support short-term (nominally 2-5 day) visits is available through the CXC Research Visitor Program (RVP). Interested members of the Chandra Users Community are invited to contact a potential CXC collaborator who can initiate a request for such support. Proposals for RVP support are solicited internally twice per year.
A directory for the CXC scientific staff is available at http://cxc.harvard.edu/cdo/cxcstaff/cxcstaff.php
Support may be requested for transportation, accommodations, and incidental travel expenses for U.S. or international Chandra users.
The first internal call for RVP proposals will commence on 1 July 2016, with a due date of 31 July 2016. Travel must be completed before 31 December 2016. The next call, for visits in the first half of 2017, will occur in December 2016.
