Ceád míle fáilte - one hundred thousand welcomes - to Galway and the 7th International Conference on Social Software. This conference combines the old and the new: the historical city of Galway plays host to researchers, developers and practitioners from industry and academia to discuss future developments for social software and social media. The conference will be held from 26th-27th August 2010.

The conference will be based on the campus of National University of Ireland, Galway, which was founded in 1845. Christopher Columbus visited the city in 1477, fifteen years before he discovered America. The modern campus boasts excellent conference facilities on the banks of the River Corrib. The campus is a short walk from a bustling downtown area. Galway is a thriving city renowned for its friendliness and young population. The strategic location of the city on the west coast gives visitors easy access to the surrounding beauty spots such as Connemara and the Burren.
