On 1 April 2019 ESO released its new Phase1 system (p1) for the submission of Director’s Discretionary Time (DDT) observing proposals for the period between April and September 2019 (Period 103). The p1 interface will be extended to all types of observing proposals in the Period 105 Call for Proposals, which will be released in September 2019. This represents the first part of a broader overhaul of the ESO Phase 1 system that also entails a significant modernisation of the Observ-ing Programmes Committee peer review process and associated tools. Here we highlight the main features of the new user interface for proposals submission.
