Campus of Trinity College Dublin, founded 1592



PLEASE NOTE, that due to the visit of US President Obama to Dublin City Centre on afternoon of Monday 23rd of May, that there is likely to be disruption in traveling to and from TCD. Details of the visit and consequences will only emerge over coming days (due to security considerations). Details of the visit and consequent security arrangements and disruption are only being released in the coming days, and we will do our best to update the web page to reflect issues that might affect the conference.

As of 21st May 19.00 GMT, please note:

1. The  Front Gate entrance to Trinity College Dublin will be closed on Sunday night and all day Monday (see below), and you are asked to either use the Nassau Street or Lincoln Place entrances to enter the conference venue. Basically use the two entrances at the bottom of the map shown at http://www.ieee-im.org/venuemap_11_4189932531.pdf and not the one on the left hand side of the map.

Access to College campus Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th May 2011

  • Front Gate – closed from 1800 hrs Sunday 22 May until midnight Monday 23 May.
  • Nassau Street Gate – open from 1800 hrs Sunday 22 May until midnight Monday 23 May (midnight Sunday 22 May to 0700 hours on Monday 23 May for residents only)
  • Lincoln Place Gate – open from 0500 hrs until midnight Monday 23 May.
  • All other gates – normal arrangements will apply.

2. There may be some disruption traveling to/from the conference venue, and on you are asked to leave yourself plenty of time. You are advised to check the local media for updates on disruptions.
For example see: http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2011/0521/breaking24.html

3. Those people who are staying on campus and arriving on Monday may be requested to provide some identification and some evidence that accommodation has been booked in order to be able to visit the Accommodation Office. This is because Front Square in which the office is located is close to the Presidential visit location and security needs to be assured that you have genuine business trying to access Front Square (which of course you have!).

Today Trinity College Dublin is a modern research-oriented university, ranked in the top 50 research universities worldwide according to the The Times Higher Education survey. In contrast to the serene surroundings of the College landscape, the modern city of Dublin is just outside the main gate of the campus, with shops, theatres, cinemas and museums within walking distance.
