Conference Location

Conference Location: Limerick, Ireland

The riverside city of Limerick is located in the heart of the Mid-West of Ireland on the picturesque River Shannon. Conquered by the Vikings in the 9th century, modern Limerick is a bustling and vibrant city with a historic city centre.  Ancient buildings such as King John’s Castle and St Mary’s Cathedral sit alongside beautiful Georgian architecture and are juxtaposed with modern architecture to provide a city of contrasts.

The city has a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as museums, art galleries and theatres.  Limerick is known for its sporting prowess, and its passion for sports such as rugby and the traditional Irish game of Hurling (the fastest field game in the world).

Ireland is known for its warm and friendly welcome, and Limerick is no exception to this rule. We hope to offer the delegates of ICST 2018 the traditional Irish welcome.

The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Limerick, located on the outskirts of Limerick City. The University has a beautiful riverside Campus of over 133 hectares with the majestic River Shannon at its centre.


ICST 2018 will be held in the

Kemmy Business School, on the campus of the University of Limerick
