Another (blue) rectangle gives you still better approximation of the location of the faculty building.

o How to reach the meeting point

To get to the Faculty building from the airport you can take e.g. bus No. 100 from the airport to the metro terminal ZLICIN, (line B - the yellow line), and go directly to the station KRIZIKOVA, lying on line B. This trip will last about 10 min (bus)+30 min (metro).

All main railway stations are directly connected to the metro net, and you should reach the meeting point within 30 minutes from any of them. We recommend to consult city maps and other information available on metro stations. In case of any trouble please contact the organizers (click "Organizers and contact" above for contact addresses).

o Last Conference Day, Friday, July 1: Paseky to Prague

o The conference place - basic information

Wearing of slippers (or any other home shoes) inside the hotel is recommended.

We also recommend to consider an appropriate clothing and shoes for walks and hikes in the almost-mountain terrain (elev. 800 - 1300 m). In the beginning of June, the outside temperatures should be within the range of +15 to +25 Celsius with rare but possible exceptions in both directions. Be prepared for summer rains and/or occasional storms.

The hotel The accommodation consists of rooms for 2 or 3 people. All rooms are equipped with a bathroom, TV set and a radio receiver with alarm clock. There is a public telephone machine located near the main hall of the hotel. You need Czech telephone cards (Telecom) to be able to make calls from this machine. However, we can arrange for purchasing these cards at the conference place.

There is an electronically guarded parking place nearby the hotel. There is no direct email or Internet connection available in the hotel. Our experience is that this is often considered as one of the advantages of the place.

Full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is a part of the conference fee, except drinks. You can buy drinks during the meal times from the hotel stuff.

o Papers and Preprints

Paperboxes in the conference place It is more or less a tradition to organize an "Exhibition of articles of participants" during the school. For that reason please do not forget to bring along preprints/reprints of your work or even the books (all of them not necessarily recent) to Paseky. Everybody will get a "mailbox" (see picture) in the conference place, where he/she can exhibit his/her papers/books to make them accessible for other participants during the conference time.

o Short communications

The participants of the conference can present their results in a form of a (very) short communication. We expect that the length of these communications will be (according to their number) set to 10-15 minutes. The participants can use overhead projector (which is, in fact, recommended) and/or data projector (beamer).

o Confirmation letters, visa

Each participant will be given the official confirmation of participation (and the letter confirming that he/she had a short communication lecture) at the conference palce. However, if you in advance need an official letter of a special kind to confirm your participation or you have any queries please contact us.

In particular, it is important to check whether you need or don't need visa to enter Czech Republic. Please contact us immediately in case this is true, and you need some special letter from us.

See section "Organizers and contact" to get contact adresses.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Prague and at Paseky.
