It is a great location for hosting a conference. For MONAMI 2013 we are combing many of the virtues of Cork, its reputation for learning and research, its beautiful setting on the South coast of Ireland and its reputation for fine food. The conference programme, as a result of this combines the presentation of existing new research with a social programme including dinner in one the most stunning settings on the South coast.
