Information


Directions

The gathering point is the Zonnenfeld Auditorium (building #73) while the other sessions will be held at building #90 in the other side of the Campus. Entrance to BGU with a car will be possible to registered IPS members only. Please show at the entrance a printout of an entrance permit which is generated via registration (details in the registration link which is available in the menu on the left). For maps and directions, including information on in-campus and out-of-campus parking locations and food spots see information for visitors and here below in this page. Printouts: The poster, a booklet with the essential information about the program, and the abstracts are available as PDFs (links in the menu on the left). The registered participants would get upon arrival a formal version of the booklet that does not include the abstracts (think about our green environment!).

Registration

Registration is via the IPS website (the link is available in the menu on the left). Once registered you can fill in advance the payment webform, where you can specify the mailing address for the receipt. Those who fill the forms in advance will enjoy a fast track registration at the reception desk (just drop your check and get the tag / printed material). The webforms can be filled also on the day of the meeting (before you make the payment), but then you might have to wait patiently in a long line to get a free PC stand! Most probably - if you do not fill the forms in advance - you will have to postpone the registration to the break after the welcome session. Entrance to BGU with a car will be possible to those who register in advance. Please show at the entrance a printout of an entrance permit which is generated via registration (details in the registration link which is available in the menu on the left).

Submissions

Submissions of abstract is via this website (the link is available in the menu on the left). The required UserName and Password are available to faculty members via the physics office of their home institution (it is the same UserName and Password for all). Faculty members are allowed to give their students the permission to submit abstracts after they check and approve their presentation. An abstract submission will be approved by the organizers only if the submitter has a valid IPS registration number, and a payment form including both IPS membership fee and IPS meeting registration fee has been submitted. The payment itself should be performed latest at the day of the meeting. So if you did not (say) send a cheque in advance, please bring it in the day of the meeting.

Sessions

All lecture halls will be equipped with computers with projectors. In order to streamline the sessions, please bring your presentation in a USB memory key and give it to the session Chair in advance. (Irrespective of that you can also provide a link to your presentation upon submission). Local PCs are equipped with most standard applications, including MS Office PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat. In case of doubt, please consult us. Overhead projectors will be available only upon request in advance. Normally contributed talks in the parallel sessions are 10+2 minutes.

Posters

The default poster size is 1.2m high times 0.8m wide. We shall supply tacks.

Prizes

Each year, at the annual meeting, two graduate students are awarded the IPS prize. Nominations for the IPS prize can be made ONLY by the chairs of physics departments in Israel who pay their annual IPS dues. Each department chair can nominate up to two students. The candidates must have submitted abstracts to IPS2008 and be able to attend IPS2008. More details will be available at the new IPS website.
