The core period covered by the Galway Conference stretches from the beginnings of Easter calculations in the third century to the introduction of Arabic and Greek science in the Latin West in the 12th century, but papers on the reckoning of time and its cultural context in the later Middle Ages have also always been welcomed.

Each Conference has had a special theme (the formation of computus in Late Antiquity; the rise of prognostications in the early Middle Ages; the revolution of computus in the 11th and 12th centuries; Computus in the Carolingian Age; etc., etc.).

This eastern province is home to the Republic of Ireland’s capital city Dublin, originally founded by the Vikings.

Today, rarely a week goes by without some form of festival happening in the city.

The conference will be held in Galway on 27-29 June 2018.

Connacht is home to stunning scenery, including Connemara, Achill Island, and Sligo’s world-renowned surfing coast.

Many parts of the province retain their very strong Gaelic traditions, in particular the Aran Islands.

Computus – the mathematics required to calculate the date of Easter, and related topics (incl.

astronomical observations and calculations) – straddles the fields of mathematics and astronomy, biblical interpretation and cosmology, empirical astronomical observation, and the perennial quest to understand the concepts of time and time-reckoning.

The Irish language is spoken throughout Connacht's Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) areas.
