From IPS President Mark SubbaRao:

As we all know the situation with COVID-19 is evolving and changing on a daily basis. On March 11 the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared the Covid-19 outbreak a pandemic. On March 12, 2020 the Alberta government announced that in the face of the rapidly evolving international health threat, it is recommending that international conferences of over 50 visitors be cancelled.

Based on these facts, the TELUS World of Science – Edmonton and the International Planetarium Society have decided to postpone the IPS 2020 conference. Our top priority is the health and safety of the IPS community and the public as a whole.

We are announcing a postponement rather than a cancellation, because it is our intention to hold the conference at a later date. We will be working through the details of that postponement over the next several weeks and will be communicating with delegates, sponsors, etc. as soon as possible. Please be patient with us as we work out those arrangements.

At this point we will be offering to hold registrations for when we are able to announce the new date of IPS 2020 or for those that request it we will be offering full refunds for registrations and tour bookings. If you would like a refund or have other inquires please contact us at ips2020@twose.ca. If you have booked accommodations, flights, or other means of transportation during your visit, please reach out to your service providers for information on their refund policies and processes.

We wish you all the best as you deal with this crisis. It will present a significant challenge for the entire global planetarium community. If there is any way that the IPS can assist you, or your planetarium, or your regional association, please reach out to us.



Best Regards,

Mark SubbaRao
IPS President
