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.
