Online registration is ESSENTIAL and is now open.

All participants, other that the three invited speakers, are asked to register and pay the registration fee. We have tried to keep the registration fees very low, but, despite funding from the Irish Research Council, we won't survive without your payments. Participants resident in Ireland should choose the slightly more expensive option of simultaneous registration to and membership of SWIPI,

Here is a link to the registration site.

It would be great if you could all join us for dinner. The dinner cover of 35 euro, including wine, is very reasonable for Dublin restaurant prices. Please register early as we need to book places for the dinner and make a down payment before November 7.

There are many sandwich bars and lunch places near the conference venue. Participants not taking part in the SWIPI AGM are asked to make their own lunch arrangements.

Updated conference programme and other conference information will be available from SWIP Ireland site at www.swip-ireland.com
