Current Irish government guidelines (updated 22nd January 2022) do allow the conference to go ahead in person.

  • Masks will have to be worn indoors, except by presenters when presenting from 2m+ distance away from nearest person.
  • Covid-19 vaccination certificates will not be required.

If the guidelines change before March, we may be forced to postpone the conference to a later date, and delegates should bear this in mind when making plans for travel and accommodation.
