The International Medieval Congress (IMC) is organised and administered by the Institute for Medieval Studies (IMS). Since its start in 1994, the Congress has established itself as an annual event with an attendance of over 2,500 medievalists from all over the world. It is the largest conference of its kind in Europe.

Drawing medievalists from over 60 countries, with over 2,000 individual papers and 650 academic sessions and a wide range of concerts, performances, readings, round tables, excursions, bookfair and associated events, the Leeds International Medieval Congress is Europe's largest annual gathering in the humanities.

We have launched a short-term, mobile-responsive website to help you navigate and make the most of this year's IMC - from information on parking and eating on campus to the Bookfair floor plan. A PDF file of the up-to-date academic programme is also available there for download.
