11th International Conference

September 1–3, 2022

The Convention Centre Dublin; Dublin, Ireland

Due to continuing concerns regarding international travel as well as the safety of large gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 International Conference in Dublin, Ireland, to September 1-3, 2022.


If you reserved at The Spencer or Trinity City Hotel in Dublin under our reserved block, your room will be released by November 13. Reservations will be canceled, and deposits, if any, will be refunded without any penalties or need to contact the hotel. Please allow up to two weeks after the release for hotels to manage all refunds.


The call for submissions for this conference will open in November 2021. Please check our website closer to that date for complete information about submission guidelines.


The plan for the conference in 2022 stays the same: engaging invited presenters, cross-disciplinary presentations and posters, and networking opportunities with international colleagues. Dublin offers a fascinating mix of historic venues including Medieval crypts, 17th century theatres, castles, Georgian townhouses, libraries, and old military hospitals. Please save the dates and join us in this historic city!


The conference will feature over 135 hours of programming, including 15 invited sessions. Continuing education credits will be available for many sessions; check the program, when available, for specific details.


The conference will be at the The Convention Centre Dublin. Built in 2010, the Centre offers a comfortable layout with views of the River Liffey. The Spencer Hotel, our 4-star headquarter hotel, is just a 3-minute walk from the convention center. Rooms will also be available at the Trinity City Hotel near the Temple Bar district.


Dublin’s Temple Bar district richly deserves its status as the city’s Cultural Quarter. In addition to its many fine bars and restaurants, you’ll find plenty of trendy independent fashion and design shops, colorful outdoor markets, and award-winning architectural spaces.


Dublin is home to many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years. Erected in the thirteenth century, the Dublin Castle served for centuries as the headquarter of English administration in Ireland.  Built in 1796, Kilmainham Gaol imprisoned many Irish revolutionaries and was involved in some of the most heroic and tragic events in Ireland’s history. Trinity College is home to Ireland’s greatest cultural treasure and the world-famous manuscript, the Book of Kells. Opened in 1662, Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed park in Europe with 1,252 acres.


Dublin Airport is one of Europe’s busiest airports, with 60 airlines flying to over 179 destinations. Dublin Airport now offers services to over 30 airports in the UK and the ever-expanding European network of more than 100 airports.
