The conference will take place in the premises of a Premonstrate Monastery in Teplá in West Bohemia. The monastery was founded in 1193 and for centuries it used to be a cultural and scienti?c center of the region – one of the abbots was a former rector of Charles University, and the monastery played an important role in founding a ?rst spa near a mineral spring in the area, nowadays the well known spa town Mariánské Lázně. After a break in the second half of the 20th century (when the monastery was used as military barracks) it is now returning to its original destiny and is again becoming a center of spiritual life. The newly restored meeting halls will host the scienti?c program of WG 2011 and the participants will have a chance to enjoy the large park for morning or afternoon strolls.
