Irish National Astronomy Meeting 2021 – First announcement

June 8, 2021, from tdomf_b336c

We are pleased to announce that The Irish National Astronomy Meeting 2021 (INAM 2021) will be held virtually between 1st-3rd September 2021. We look forward to once again showcasing the wide range of projects being carried out by Irish researchers in partnership with international collaborators.

In the interest of public safety, and in the absence of certainty over coronavirus restrictions in the second half of 2021, we have planned INAM 2021 as a fully virtual meeting. We hope that the virtual nature of INAM 2021 will encourage participation from those who might not be able to travel to an in-person meeting, and are looking forward to welcoming an exciting range of invited speakers from across Ireland and beyond.

Abstract submission and event registration will open on the INAM 2021 website ( in mid-June. The abstract submission deadline will be 17:00 IST on Friday 9th July. The registration fee will be €25 for faculty and postdocs, and free for students. The Peter Curran award for the best talk by a student will also be returning this year. The event code of conduct will also be available on the website shortly.

We look forward to seeing you at INAM 2021 in September!
