During the 22nd IAU General Assembly in the Hague, WGPSN held its 23rd regular meeting on August 16, 1994 with the attendance of 5 WG members and 6 members of supporting Task Groups (TG). Lack of travel funds is making it increasingly difficult for the members to attend the nomenclature meetings. For this reason, and also because there is currently a rather low demand for new nomenclature on planetary bodies, it was decided that in the future WGPSN will meet regularly only at each IAU GA, instead of once a year as in the past. Most of the nomenclature work is now, anyway, being conducted by means of electronic mail. The possibility for additional ad-hoc meetings is left open; e.g., if a new space mission should generate the need for many new names.
The following nomenclature was approved during the IAU General Assembly in The Hague in August 1994. There are 8 new names for the Moon, 176 for Venus, 11 for Mars, 34 for (951) Gaspra, 1 for (243) Ida and 1 for Ida's moon, and 3 names for Neptune rings/ring arcs.
