PLANETARIUM LIVE! In and outside the dome
Our theme for IPS 2018 is “Planetarium live! In and outside the dome”. From theory to practical activities in and outside domes, we will explore altogether the variety and richness of human interaction with our diverse audiences, linked to our different cultures and habits, from the most time-proofed ones to the most innovative ones. IPS 2018 will be the first international laboratory of best live practices under and outside domes.
In order to be able to fully explore this theme, we plan to dedicate one of our two Planetariums to this subject, and to use it for live planetarium sessions during all the conference, fully held in our premises. Our new astronomical observatory will also be used as a demonstration tool for associated activities.
We want attendees to leave the conference inspired, enlightened, with new ideas, new connections, new skills, and new plans for the future... whatever the size or the budget of their institution. Cité de l’espace’ team, together with the IPS2018 Programs Committee and Scientific partners Committee is committed to offer you sessions at the closest of your interests, as well as the cutting edge of space and astronomy. This will be possible thanks to high-level keynote speakers and content related sessions where experts will share with us their latest discoveries.
