  • Welcome!
    Cité de l’espace and Toulouse Métropole are proud to host the 25th International Planetarium Society conference from 1st to 5 July 2018, preceded by a “Dome festival”.  This event will be held in France for the first time, against the exceptional backdrop of: Toulouse, 2018 European City of Science.

    A member of the IPS since it opened in 1997, Cité de l'espace is the only scientific culture site in France to offer its visitors two large planetariums offering vendors comfortable space for technical demonstrations. The complete refurbishment of the larger planetarium in June 2017 offers delegates a demonstration of the latest advances in terms of astronomical simulation, very high definition video projection and interactive visitor devices.

    We have chosen the theme “PLANETARIUM LIVE! In and Outside the Dome”, because even with today's technology, encountering a presenter and discovering the sky under their guidance is still a key element in a planetarium show. 
    Toulouse is home to a first class scientific and industrial community in the fields of space and astronomy, in Europe and worldwide. The great support of our many scientific and industrial partners allows us to guarantee high-level scientific papers.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Toulouse in July 2018…avec plaisir.
