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/Panel/Workshops

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 ipspapers@lasm.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 ipspapers@lasm.org 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.
To submit a paper, panel, or workshop, please fill out both pages of the PDF form linked below, and return it to ipspapers@lasm.org.

Posters

Posters will be limited to approximately 4 feet of table-top space and should have a cardboard backing similar to those used at science fairs. For the benefit of delegates, please include a photograph of yourself on your poster (including your name and email address) so delegates can recognize you during the conference.
You will need to spend two hours of conference time staffing your poster (24 July, 10:30-12:30).
Poster submission forms and abstracts must be returned to ipspapers@lasm.org by 21 May, 2012.
The Conference Paper Chair will notify you whether your submission was accepted by 8 June.

Please bring sufficient copies of handouts. We expect up to 500 delegates at this conference.
