List of participants

The conference site is approximately 50 meters from the tram stop "Malostranske namesti" reachable by the tram lines 12, 20 and 22. Because of ongoing facade-reconstruction the building is covered with a scaffoldng and from the outside it currently looks as depicted in the picture. Don't worry, the interior looks much better.
