Digital conference 15-18 October 2020

A chairde, unfortunately, due to the health and safety concerns regarding Covid-19 and due to travel and social gathering restrictions, we will be unable to host the 2020 Celtic Students Conference in UCD this year [we had postponed it to the end of August].
BUT the good news is that we have instead decided to host a DIGITAL CONFERENCE online, on the 15 - 18 October 2020. We hope that you will still join us! More information will be coming soon. In the meantime, stay safe!

Postponed Conference

Due to the threat and spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the conference committee has had to postpone this year's Celtic Students Conference. The conference will not take place from the 26-29th of March, as was planned. We were very much looking forward to welcoming you all to Dublin, but unfortunately this is a necessary measure at this time.
We have decided to reschedule the 2020 conference for Thursday 27th August to Sunday 30th August 2020. Of course, these dates are subject to change depending on the international situation regarding COVID-19, and we will keep track of the situation. More updates are expected in June.
