Saturday March 14: Notice of Cancellation
We regret to announce that under the circumstances of the global Covid-19 emergency, the conference planned for June 22-26 this year is deferred until a future date, yet to be identified. We are grateful to everyone who has worked to make the conference a success – the organising committees and minisymposium coordinators, the ILAS board and all intending participants. We hope to see you at the rescheduled event.

Thursday March 12: The Irish government has today escalated actions to combat the spread of the coronavirus, introducing measures including the closure of all schools and universities until March 29. The conference organisers are watching developments closely. Our advice to prospective ILAS conference participants is not to register or make travel plans for the conference for now, if you have not already done so. Further updates will follow on this page in the coming days. Thanks for your understanding.

Tuesday March 10: The global Covid-19 outbreak poses a risk to gatherings around the globe and makes it difficult for individuals to commit to international travel plans in the coming months. At present there are no restrictions in Ireland on events such as the ILAS conference. However, the situation in Europe and Ireland is evolving rapidly and further advice will follow on this page in the coming days and weeks. The organisers are aware of the difficulties in confirming travel plans and are prepared to extend deadlines for registration and abstract submission if and when necessary.
