             abstract = "BINGO is a unique radio telescope designed to make the first 
                         detection of Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) at radio 
                         frequencies. This will be achieved by measuring the distribution 
                         of neutral hydrogen gas at cosmological distances using a 
                         technique called Intensity Mapping. Along with the Cosmic 
                         Microwave Background anisotropies, the scale of BAO is one of the 
                         most powerful probes of cosmological parameters, including dark 
                         energy. The telescope will be built in a very low RFI site in 
                         South America and will operate in the frequency range from 0.96 
                         GHz to 1.26 GHz. The telescope design consists of two \∼ 
                         40-m compact mirrors with no moving parts. Such a design will give 
                         the excellent polarization performance and very low sidelobe 
                         levels required for intensity mapping. With a feedhorn array of 50 
                         receivers, it will map a 15\◦ declination strip as the sky 
                         drifts past the field-of-view of the telescope. The BINGO 
                         consortium is composed Universidade de Sao Paulo, Instituto 
                         Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (Brazil), University of Manchester 
                         and University College London (United Kingdom), ETH Zšurich 
                         (Switzerland) and Universidad de La Republica (Uruguay). The 
                         telescope assembly and horn design and fabrication are under way 
                         in Brazil. The receiver was designed in UK and will be developed 
                         in Brazil, with most of the components for the receiver will also 
                         be supplied by Brazilian industry. The experience and science 
                         goals achieved by the BINGO team will be advantageous as a 
                         pathfinder mission for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project.
