Update about membership
Many members paid at IPS2006 for 2006/7. Those who did not may now pay 150 shekels for 2007 if they were members in 2006, or 200 shekels if they were not. (Amounts for retirees and students are halved as usual.) At IPS2007 it will be possible to pay just 150 shekels for 2008 membership if you were a paid up member in 2007 but you will have to pay 200 shekels if you were not a member in 2007.
From our 2006 membership drive: Our regular standard membership fee is 150 shekels each year This year, there will be a special opportunity to pay 200 shekels for standard membership for both 2006 and 2007. Pensioners, students and teachers are charged a reduced rate of 75 shekels in a usual year, or 100 shekels for 2006/7. Membership (regular and reduced) entitles you to: * a substantial discount at IPS2006, * discounted fees for APS, EPS and IOP journals and conferences. The non-reduced rate also entitles you to: * individual EPS membership for about 19 Euros instead of almost 60 Euros, * a copy of the IPS annual meeting abstract book on request if you are unable to attend the meeting. IPS arranges our annual meeting, presents graduate student prizes, and circulates the weekly newsletter. Joining IPS will strengthen our ability to promote physics in Israel and strengthen our ability to take an active part within the European Physical Society. Membership forms will be circulated at all IPS member bodies in the near future and can be downloaded here. Please help your council representative reach everyone possible. (Members who already paid for 2006 may add 50 shekels for 2007; the 200 shekel offer for two years is for 2006/7 only.)
