The XVIIth International Congress of Celtic Studies – Utrecht 2023

The XVIIth International Congress of Celtic Studies will be held in Utrecht, 24-28 July 2023.

The International Congress of Celtic Studies is the foremost international gathering of scholars researching the languages, literatures and cultural traditions of the Celtic-speaking peoples. Held once every four years, the Congress provides a forum in which experts from across the full range of Celtic Studies — including literature, linguistics, history, archaeology, musicology and art history — come together to share the fruits of their work.

We are delighted to welcome the Celtic Studies Community to the medieval city of Utrecht. The logo for this edition of ICCS honours the Celtic heritage of the Netherlands, with a Celtic coin dated to approximately 100 BCE. It was found in Brabant (the South of the Netherlands), and it is currently kept at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden.

Please note that, until May 1, 2023, informal expressions of interest in organising the next edition of ICCS in 2027 may be sent to the International Committee of ICCS, see ‘ICCS Future‘.
