Update on 52nd Conference of Irish Geographers (postponed until May 2021)
In light of the ongoing public health emergency across Ireland and the wider world, the Geographical Society of Ireland and TCD Department of Geography regret to announce the postponement of the 52nd Conference of Irish Geographers (CIG).
The CIG was due to be held in Trinity College Dublin from May 21st to 23rd 2020. We cannot guarantee that a venue will be available for the May 2020 dates scheduled and not to postpone would violate the public health warnings issued by the Irish government and college authorities.
With the agreement of our colleagues in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick we are looking forward to Trinity College Dublin hosting the conference in May 2021.
Arrangements will now be made to reimburse all those who have registered at this point, unless you wish us to retain your registration fee until the rescheduled event is arranged. You will have received an email from the CIG registration desk at Keynote PCO, who will administer refunds or your request to retain your booking for 2021.
The TCD Committee (chaired by Cian O’Callaghan) and the Geographical Society of Ireland would like to thank Keynote for their assistance in this postponement and we look forward to continuing our joint work with them into 2021 and beyond.
Please note: an EGM of the GSI will be arranged in autumn to elect new committee members, notwithstanding any further public health restrictions in force at that time. The GSI Committee is sending all members its best at this time, look after one another.
Please note -
in light of the ongoing public health emergency across Ireland and the wider world, CIG 2020 has been postponed.
