Brief descriptionThis is a request for observing time for the timing campaign of new pulsar discoveries from the reprocessing of the low-latitude Galactic plane section of the HTRU survey (P630). We have now completed 90 % of the survey with GPU based coherent acceleration search, template bank and fast folding algorithm pipelines, and now have discovered 107 previously unknown pulsars. Interesting science can usually only be derived from a new pulsar after confirmation and a follow-up timing campaign is carried out. One year of initial timing is the minimum timespan required to fully characterise any newly-discovered pulsars, essential for deriving pulsar parameters such as the characteristic age, magnetic field strength, spin-down rate, as well as to detect any unexpected behaviour of the pulsar which might result from emission instabilities. This timing project is necessary for the timing of millisecond pulsars discovered in the current and last semester and for following up our confirmed pulsars from the HTRU Galactic plane survey. The follow-up timing in APRS22 will produce completely new and exciting results. In addition, this timing project will allow us to measure the true Galactic plane pulsar population and the boundaries of pulsar parameter space in the galactic plane.
