The UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technology has offered to bring delegates on a tour of their site on the Belfield campus. This innovative project reconstructs life in the ancient past from roundhouses to firing clay pots. You can read more about it here.
The tour will last an hour and is scheduled for 10am-11am on Friday 3rd July. There are no papers scheduled at that time. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The pickup point will be the Arts Cafe on the ground floor of the Newman Bldg, the venue of the ICM.
Brepols, Four Courts Press and DIAS publications will all have stalls at the ICM. These will be in the UCD Common Room, close to the conference venues. Coffee breaks will also be held here. If you are interested in purchasing we advise delegates not to leave it too late as the stands are unlikely to be open for all of the final day.
The ICM is delighted to announce that conference delegates are invited to the launch of Clerics, Kings and Vikings: Essays on Medieval Ireland in Honour of Donnchadh Ó Corráin. The launch will be taking place between 6:15pm – 8pm in the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson Street. In order to enable delegates to attend we have updated the Programme of the 29th ICM.
Early Bird registration is now closed for the 29th ICM. Online registration will continue until June 30th, after which a late registration fee will apply. For further details please visit this page.
The Programme of the 29th ICM is now available. Thanks to all our speakers for contributing such interesting papers. Thanks, also, to our sponsors: UCD Seed Funding, UCD College of Arts and Celtic Studies, the Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Institute, Carlow County Museum and Wexford County Council.
The file will be updated to take into account any changes to the programme.
Online registration is now available for the 29th ICM. A special discount of over 20% is being offered on the registration fee for delegates who sign up by June 1st. The fee will be €40, with a student/pensioner/unwaged rate of €20. The registration fee will cover refreshments as well as the ICM receptions.
Booking can also be made for the conference dinner. This year it will be held on July 2nd in The Vintage Kitchen, which is located in the heart of the city centre, on Poolbeg Street, near Trinity College. It is easily accessible from UCD via public transport. Booking is recommended as places are limited and will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. The €45 fee covers a three course dinner as well as a generous wine allocation.
We have reserved rooms for delegates who wish to use UCD Campus Accommodation. This is located only a few minutes from the ICM venue. However, the number of reserved rooms is limited so we would advise delegates to book early. Rooms are all wifi-enabled and en suite. They cost €59 per night.

The draft list of speakers for the 29th ICM is now available to download, along with their abstracts. This will be updated to reflect any changes to the programme in advance of the conference. We would like to thank all our speakers whose varieties of interests make this the most diverse ICM yet.
