Dear members of the Planetarium community,
On behalf of Toulouse Metropole and Toulouse City, it is with great pleasure and pride that I invite you to the International Planetarium Society Conference at Cité de l’Espace in 2018. Astronomy, space and aeronautics have forged the identity of our city for decades: research, education and industry, but also outreach and scientific culture are incredibly thriving in Toulouse. Each year, countless space-related events take place in the Pink City, be they festivals, temporary exhibitions or astronomical events.
Indeed, the stars and the planets are closer to Toulouse than anywhere else !
Jean Baptiste Desbois
CEO of Cité de l’espace
Cité de l’espace is proud to host the next IPS conference, for the first time in France. As the main European Science Centre dedicated to space and astronomy, and with the strong partnership of renown professionals from space agencies, industries and universities, in Toulouse or at a national and international level, Cité de l’espace will be a vibrant laboratory for IPS 2018, a major international planetarium event.
Bienvenue à la Cité de l’espace!
President of the International Planetarium Society, Inc.
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
You are cordially invited to Cité de l’espace in Toulouse, France for IPS2018! The “Pink City” is a mecca for space exploration industries and our host facility showcases this in an exceptional fashion. Delegates will have a chance to tour the historic Toulouse Observatory, see a full size Ariane 5 rocket, and two newly renovated digital domes and so much more. The conference theme “Planetarium Live: In and Outside the Dome” will provide unique professional development opportunities for everyone in the planetarium field from portable domes, to traditional star projectors, to the most modern digital facilities. It is a chance for unique cultural exchanges and networking with your colleagues from around the globe.
I look forward to seeing you in Toulouse !
Exhibitions Director, IPS 2018 Project Manager
We are very excited to welcome you soon for IPS 2018 at Cité de l’espace where two large renovated planetariums and one Imax theatre will offer you a very professional context for innovative demos on giant screens and inspiring sessions on the theme “Planerarium live, in and outside the dome”! And don’t miss the dome festival held just before the conference to discover the latest planetarium productions. The team is already working hard to make IPS 2018 an unforgettable conference, with a special French flavour!
Bienvenue aux planetariums!
