Since measures deployed in the ESA Member States have disrupted scientific activities in those countries, the INTEGRAL AO-18 proposal submission deadline has been postponed from Friday, 3 April to Monday, 4 May 14:00 CEST. ESA will continue to follow developments closely and may provide additional updates in the next weeks, at the latest by Monday, 20 April.
