Cultural and Social Events


Conference Reception

The reception is a special conference event featuring a rich cultural programme. It is intended to be a place for friendly meetings between colleagues and a chance for conference attendees to experience traditional Moravian hospitality, including good food, excellent Moravian wine, renowned Czech beer, local folk music and dance, and a friendly atmosphere.

The reception will take place on Friday, 16 January from 19:30 until 22:00 in the conference lobby located in the FSS MU. This is the only conference event that must be paid for. Anyone may attend who has made a reservation in advance and paid the fee of 590 CZK.

Those who have done so will find an invitation for the reception amongst their conference materials. This will allow them entrance to the reception. If you have not made a reservation in advance, or you have not paid the event fee, you may inquire at the information desk whether the reception can still accommodate guests. If so, you will be able to purchase a ticket on the day at the reception desk.


Guided tour of the city centre

Guided tour of the historical centre of Brno is planned at the end of the conference, on Saturday, 17 January at 15:00. This will take place in English, German or Czech. If you are interested in participating, please register via our website or ask for current availability at the information desk in the conference lobby.
