Delegate-led sessions are a crucial part of every planetarium conference. When delegates take the opportunity to share their experiences and expertise on subjects, everyone benefits. Our conference theme is Bridge to New Beginnings, and some suggested session themes include: art and sky: making connections, astronomy education, climate change/Earth science, cosmology, data visualization, live/interactive presentations, and script writing.
At IPS2012, we will offer four types of delegate-led presentations: paper sessions, panel sessions, workshops, and posters.
Paper sessions will be limited to ten minutes, with an additional two minutes at the end for questions.
Panel sessions and workshops will typically be limited to 45 minutes but longer sessions may be approved by the Conference Host. A session moderator will time and enforce these limits.
Paper session, panel session, and workshop submission forms and abstracts must be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by 21 May, 2012.
The Conference Paper Chair will notify you whether your submission was accepted by 8 June, and, if accepted, you must email your paper/panel/workshop to email@example.com by 27 June.
You must be an IPS member and pay conference registration fees to present a paper/panel/workshop.
Paper/panel/workshop sessions may not be used to make sales presentations.
