International Planetarium Society

Dear fellow Planetarians and IPS members,

All of us were surprised today when receiving an email with the subject "Balance Due - Please send in payment for IPS 2014." Those of us who have not registered yet were the most surprised.

It seems the conference software used for IPS 2014 registration hiccuped and sent payment due notices to everyone. You can safely ignore the message. 

Our host in Beijing is working on rectifying this issue, so please watch your inbox for more information. 

Thank you for your attention

Kindest regards

Thomas W. Kraupe 
President, International Planetarium Society Inc.
