Login  Information for participants
Accommodation

Accommodation is available directly at the conference venue, and these rooms will be provided on the first-come-first-serve basis. Preferential room charges have been negotiated (79 EUR/night including breakfast). Limited possibility of double occupancy of rooms can be provided to participants (55 EUR/night including breakfast) upon request (please indicate roommate upon registration). The same room rates apply shall you wish to arrive already earlier (or leave later).

Please refrain for using any other booking portal, if you wish to stay at the Liblice castle, as the entire capacity of the castle is blocked by the conference and it would cause confusions (cancellations fees etc.).

A limited number of bursaries for talk and poster presenters are available. These bursaries amount to EUR 60,- per night and EUR 20,- per meal during the attendance of the participant between dinner at September 12th and lunch at September 15th plus a travel allowance of maximally EUR 300,-. Participants wishing to apply for this bursary should send an informal message to Wolf Geppert. Application of early career investigators (up to 8 years after their first Ph. D. and participants from "Inclusiveness Target Countries" is especially encouraged.

Meals

A convenience package has been prepared by the local organizer that includes food (breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks and dinners including the conference banquet as well as beverages), and beverages for the entire stay based on 20 EUR/meal. These convenience packages must be paid by bank transfer or CreditCard upon registration.

Social programme

On Wednesday 14 September after lunch there will be a small excursion to the picturesque town of Melnik, which is closely situated to the conference venue. We will have a walk around the historic centre and visit the Lobkowicz Castle with a guided tour. We will be able to taste some of their wines in the historical cellar. Thereafter we can visit the St. Peter & Paul's church with the famous Ossuary. If time allows, we can climb the tower of the church and/or explore Melnik on our own. The costs for the excursion including bus transfer, castle visit, entrance fees and wine tasting will be EUR 15,-.

Other leisure time activities: like biking, massages, wellness, horse riding etc. are available over the entire stay. For more information see http://www.chateau-liblice.com/. In case of interest, all activities can be ordered in advance. Contact to the hotel´s reception: recepce@zamek-liblice.cz.
