      Call for Papers
      Fulldome Summit at IPS 2008: The Future of Fulldome
      July 3rd, 2008
      Chicago, Illinois, USA

      The International Planetarium Society's Fulldome Video Committee, DomeFest,
      and the Adler Planetarium are co-sponsoring the second Fulldome Summit as a
      special session of IPS 2008 on Thursday, July 3rd, at Adler Planetarium in
      Chicago, Illinois. Abstracts are now being accepted for two paper sessions:

      1) Emerging Fulldome Technologies - Papers of a deep technical nature are
      solicited on emerging fulldome technologies covering topics such as
      automatic multi-projector alignment, digital hemispheric live- action
      cameras, 4k x 4k production workflow, cutting-edge real-time applications,
      or stereoscopic fulldome systems.

      2) Future of Fulldome - Papers focusing on broad-brush future directions for
      fulldome theaters are solicited covering topics such as networked domes,
      entertainment programming, content development consortiums, large-format
      film, fulldome convergence, etc.

      Abstracts are due April 30th and acceptance will be announced by May 31st.
      Acceptance of abstracts is competitive and will be based on relevance to
      advancement of the medium and fulldome profession. Electronic versions of
      final accepted papers are due at the conference and will be subsequently
      published in an electronic Fulldome Summit proceedings and also considered
      for publication in the IPS Planetarian. Fulldome Summit paper presentations
      are 15 minutes with a 5 minute Q&A session, and are expected to be of
      specific interest to the fulldome community. Papers on fulldome topics that
      are of general interest to the planetarium community should be submitted for
      presentation at the preceding IPS 2008 conference.

      Please send all abstracts as Word or text documents to Ed Lantz at
      ed@... by the April 30th, 2008 deadline.
