The deadline is approaching...

Several people asked us about submissions closing time.
The deadline for full paper submissions is 23:59 GMT on March 23!

The conference chairs decided there will be no extensions granted.

And thanks to our colleagues in Trinity, Bridget and Saturnino, we were able to make LaTeX templates as well available on the website! Thanks a million for your help!

Don't forget that the submission has to be in PDF format! We advise you to register on the submission website in advance, and become aware of the requirements.

Working on the details

We just had a new meeting with Louise from Limerick Travel, who will take care of the conference logistics on our behalf. They will be in charge with the registration and will help us organise both the conference and the social events. We went through the current scenario and examined costs, the timeline and responsibilities; I guess we spoke about almost everything: conference bags, student volunteers, both budget and posh accommodation, Limerick city and area attractions..

Everything sounds great - we even joked about some magic boat to bring the guests from the Hilton to the City Hall crossing the Shannon;-) Canoes are available, but I assume there aren't many guests who would like to get wet...

We would be happy if you'd drop a line here about what went wrong in the previous editions - and we'll do our best to perform!

The social events...

We have now a better idea about what will happen in the evenings.

For Tuesday, September 25, there will be a welcome reception at the Georgian House, one of the tourist attractions in Limerick. Our guests will get the chance to visit the house and the garden and meet other participants, in the charming atmosphere of that venue. There is no big room in the house that could accommodate all the guests at one time, but there's an audio installation that will allow everyone to hear the welcome speech while wandering around with a glass of wine!

On Wednesday, September 26, we will be welcomed by the Mayor of Limerick at the City Hall for a civic reception. If the weather is nice, it will be a delight to have a stroll by the Shannon and admire the Hilton from the opposite side!

On Thursday, September 26, we're out to the Dromoland Castle, for a walk on the domain and the official conference dinner. This is likely to be an unforgettable event for our guests, as the place is pretty unique...

And of course, for those who come early, there's always something happening in the city - we'll prepare a list of recommendations for Monday evening closer to the time.

For those who want to stay over for the following week-end, Limerick Travel promised to put together a list of half-day or one-day trips to fit every budget and every interests!
