I’m sure many of you are concerned about COVID-19 and its implications for international and domestic travel, and the impact it will have on the IAAS2020 conference, ‘Counter-narratives and Hidden Histories’, taking place 3-4 April at Maynooth University.
Maynooth University is following HSE guidelines, which can be found here: https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/coronavirus.html. The risk of catching the Coronavirus in Ireland is low, there is currently no restriction on travel into and out of Ireland, and there have been no reported cases or potential cases of the virus at Maynooth.
We will keep the conference page updated, but for now and the foreseeable future, the University is business as usual, and the conference is going ahead.
If circumstances change, and the University moves to cancel the conference, then refunds will be available on accommodation booked on campus, and on registration. If any delegate is travelling from a country that imposes a travel ban, then a refund will also be made.
We are currently looking into video link options for those delegates who cannot now travel to us, and hope to have more information on this shortly.
All the very best,
Catherine Gander and the IAAS2020 team.
