Prague, a city with over a thousand-year history, was established and developed at the intersection of strategic routes connecting key centers on the European continent. Its leading position and favorable climate led to the successful development of trade, arts and crafts, scientific research and knowledge. The town is one of the most important historical cities of Europe. The past centuries have left their mark here primarily in art and architecture. Through the course of time Prague has gained a reputation as a major European center of culture, education and humanism. An area of more than 8 sq. km registered in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register. Prague is also a modern European metropolis full of energy, music, and art. It’s a city of contrasts: Serene green isles in the river and peaceful parks draping the city’s seven hills are just steps away from the architectural treasures and bustling street life of the city center. It’s a place where different architectural styles stand cheek by jowl, creating an atmosphere that’s both intimate and romantic, and quite impossible to forget once seen.


Conference Venue – The hotel Meritum is located on the western part of Prague city, a quiet part of Prague 6, Ruzyně between the city center and the international Václav Havel Prague Airport, easily accessible for passengers traveling by plane or car. The hotel is invalid friendly. All of hotel rooms have their own WC, shower, refrigerator, TV + Sat. The hotel includes the stylish Restaurant U Rychtáře, which is located in the monumentally protected object of Kubr farm from the 16th century, the oldest rural homestead in Prague. We recommend staying a few days before or after the workshop in Prague. The hotel reservation could be done for the dates 10 to 16 October 2015. The sight-seeing programs for interested participants and accompanying persons will be organized in Prague. Regarding to the fact that Prague is a much frequented tourist centre and the capacity of hotels is limited, all participants are asked to send their accommodation requests as soon as possible. All rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
