November 2005 (Volume 5 Number 3)


ETSG 2005 Dublin

The conference in September at University College Dublin was a huge success. Attendance was higher than anticipated, reinforcing our claim to be the largest conference in international trade in the world. The local organisation was excellent and we are grateful to local organisers Peter Neary, Frank Barry, Dermot Leahy, Joe Tharakan, and Susan Muldoon for ensuring that everything ran so smoothly. The size of the conference and the inclement weather sadly meant that there was no "official" conference photograph taken this year.

The next three conference locations and dates have been agreed upon. These are:

  • ETSG 2006 Vienna, 07-09 September 2006

  • ETSG 2007 Athens, 06-08 September 2007

  • ETSG 2008 Warsaw, 11-13 September 2008

Details of the Vienna conference will be posted soon.
