Venue & Travel

iGBL2013 will be hosted by the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Ireland’s largest third level institution with over twenty thousand students and 38 sites around Dublin city. iGBL2013 will be held in the Aungier Street campus, Dublin 2. A few minutes walk from Stephen’s Green, Temple Bar and Grafton Street, the Aungier Street campus is one of the largest in DIT and is built on the historically important site of the old Jacob’s Biscuit Factory, scene of fierce fighting in the 1916 Rising. DIT Aungier St is home to the College of Business, which is also the largest business school in Ireland, and the School of Media. Student facilities include the excellent library, students’ union area, computer rooms and cafeteria.  Many conferences and lecture series also take place in this location during the academic year.
