Conference Information

Journal Collaborations

We have an exciting announcement regarding journal publication collaborations.

Over the past number of weeks the FAIM Scientific Committee has formulated an agreement with three leading journals publishers for papers submitted to the FAIM2019 conference, a fast track publication route and a special issue publication route.

As research output comes in stages, it may be that some research is ready to avail of the fast track journal approach through FAIM2019, while others will benefit from the conference to gain new insights, make new contacts and network to expand on the research. Accepted Peer-Reviewed Manuscripts will get the opportunity to be published in Procedia Manufacturing.

Social Events

Welcome Reception

A welcome reception will take place on Sunday 23rd June.

Conference Dinner

The conference dinner will be held in at Bunratty Castle.

Bunratty Castle is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland. Built in 1425 it was restored to its former medieval splendour in 1954,  and now contains mainly 15th and 16th century furnishings, tapestries, and works of art, capturing the mood of those times.

At Bunratty Folk Park you’ll experience a living reconstruction of the homes and environment of the Ireland of over a century ago. Set on 26 acres, the impressive park features over 30 buildings in a ‘living village’ and rural setting. Rural farmhouses, village shops and streets are recreated and furnished as they would have appeared at that time, according to their social standing, from the poorest one-room dwelling to Bunratty House, a fine example of a Georgian residence for the gentry. This manor house was built in 1804 as home of the Studdarts, the last family to occupy Bunratty Castle.

Enjoy village life in 19th century Ireland! The village houses and shops in the Folk Park have been chosen from many different areas, to form a collection of typical 19th century urban Irish buildings – including the school, doctor’s house, pawnbrokers, pub, drapery, print works, grocery, hardware shop, pottery and a post office.
