Conference venue

The workshop venue is the modern hotel Meritum located on the western part of the Prague city. It is a quiet district of Prague 6, Ruzyne between the city center and near the International Václav Havel Prague Airport. The venue is easily accessible for passengers traveling by plane or car. The hotel Meritum is invalid friendly. All hotel rooms have their own shower, WC, refrigerator, TV Sat, and wi-fi. The price per night in this hotel, including breakfast is 58 € for single room and 75 € for double room. The hotel includes the stylish Restaurant “U Rychtare”, located in the monumentally protected object of “Kubr farm” from the 16th century, the oldest rural homestead in Prague.

We recommend staying there a few days before or after the workshop to visit Prague. The hotel reservations can be done for the dates October 5 to 13, 2019. The sight-seeing program for interested participants and accompanying persons will be organized in Prague. Regarding to the fact that Prague is a much frequented tourist center 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.


Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a city with over a thousand-year history, 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.
