The preliminary ACIS-West 2016 conference schedule is now available! We are very excited about the lineup that Traolach and the crew in Missoula have assembled for us. Please note that the conference officially starts on Friday morning and ends on Saturday evening, but a very exciting optional trip to Butte and the Butte Archives will take place on Thursday (transportation provided).
The conference hotel for ACIS-West will be the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown (200 South Pattee, Missoula, Montana 59802).
A block of rooms has been set aside for conference participants for Friday and Saturday nights at the group rate of $95/night. In addition, the hotel will honor the group rate on Thursday and Sunday nights as well. Space is limited, so please book as soon as possible. The cutoff date to secure these rates is 9/21/16.
The group name is UM Irish Studies Conference. You may reserve directly at this link if you only require Friday and Saturday accommodations (note that the link is not mobile compatible). If you wish to secure a room at the group rate for Thursday and/or Sunday, or if you prefer to book by phone, please contact the front desk at 406-721-8550, or toll free 1-800-HOLIDAY.
In the coming days, we will be responding to those who submitted paper and panel proposals, and the registration system will be up and running shortly. We look forward to welcoming you all to Missoula for what will be a terrific weekend.
