Please take notice of the Digistar Users Group Scholarship!
Conference Scholarship—DUG members, who have been members for at least one year and currently employed at a Digistar site, are eligible to apply for a scholarship to assist with travel costs for the yearly DUG conference. Successful applicants will receive a waiver of conference registration for the annual conference held in the year the application is made plus reimbursement up to $1000 for defraying transportation, to and from the host city, and accommodation conference costs. In order to qualify, an applicant must attend all parts of the conference held in the year the application was submitted (i.e. not go for only one day or wait to attend until the next year), and applicants are expected to submit a demo to the library and serve DUG in some matter, for example presenting a poster/paper at the conference, working on a DUG project, assisting the conference host, etc. Winners will be decided upon by the executive committee. Members of the Executive Committee are ineligible for the scholarship.
save it, and send it as an attachment to an email along with a letter from you supervisor to the DUG President(firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 30, 2017!
What is DUG?
The Digistar Users Group provides a forum for discussion and exchange of information concerning the Digistar digital planetarium systems; We also provide a means for exchanging Digistar content; and for maintaining a dialogue between member sites and the Digistar system manufacturer, Evans & Sutherland, on matters of service, improvements, and other subjects of mutual concern and interest.
What's on the DUG website?
Lots of stuff! Recent and archived newsletters, conference information, standards documents, access to the DUG library, and a directory of all DUG members. In addition, there are directions on how to subscribe to our email listserve. The DUG library alone is worth the $20 (US) annual membership fee. The library currently holds hundreds of Digistar models and complete showfiles.
How do I become a member?
If your Digistar system has been installed within the last year, most likely your DUG dues have already been paid by E&S. If you have any questions about your membership status, contact our DUG Treasurer. Visit our Membership page for more information.
