Prague is at the heart of Europe, not only geographically but also from the cultural point of view. Here different nations have been mixing together for centuries. The city is full of beautiful architectural treasures with a legacy that extends for more than a thousand years.

Czech University of Life Sciences
The conference will be held at the campus of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. The university lies in the district of Suchdol, a calm suburb in the northernmost part of the city with an excellent public transport connection to the city center (about 20 minutes). The campus was selected as one of the fifty most ecological university campuses worldwide according to UI Green Metric World University Rankings in 2018 and the university has established itself in recent years as one of the most attractive international schools of the country. In the university premises, visitors can find many lecture halls, classrooms, offices, and laboratories alongside dormitories and hotel services, Menza (cafeteria for students and employees), restaurants, several bars, parking areas, and assembly halls.
It is possible for visitors to stay at the hotel of the university’s student dormitories.

There are also two hotels nearby the university campus Carl Inn and Hotel Galaxy. Additionally, visitors can choose to stay at the Hotel International, a remarkable and architectonically valuable hotel located just eight minutes away by bus from campus.
