The Irish Quaternary Association (IQUA) is pleased to announce that the 20th Congress of the International Union for Quaternary Science (INQUA) will be held in Dublin in 2019

Following an extended and very competitive bidding process, Dublin has been selected over the other candidate cities Zaragoza (Spain) and Rome (Italy).

The congress takes place every four years, and was held this year in Nagoya, Japan, where the bids were presented. 3,000 delegates are expected to attend the congress in 2019, for a seven-day lecture programme at The Convention Centre Dublin, with further extended excursions throughout Ireland, Northern Ireland and other parts of the UK.

Keynote PCO is a specialist conference management company for international congresses, and has worked with the Irish committee to secure this important event. “We’re very pleased that INQUA has awarded this prestigious congress to Ireland, and recognised the efforts of the Irish society in its proposal as hosts for a global audience”, said Dr. Noel Mitchell, Managing Director of Keynote PCO.
