Wanted: A Site for IPS 2018
Dear IPS Member:
I want to make you aware of an important issue regarding the status of the IPS 2018 Conference. The Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City, Utah informed us that for reasons beyond their control, they must withdraw their bid to host the IPS 2018 Conference.
Of course, this is very sad news since they were the only bidder to host that conference. The good news is that we have the opportunity to open the bid process once again. In 2014 our conference was held in Asia and in 2016 we will be in Europe.
Where on our lovely blue planet shall we meet in 2018? The IPS Council is working on securing bids for a new conference site. Watch the website for further developments and information about potential sites. A decision will be made by IPS Council in August of this year. All the best,
