The conference will be held in the recently restored Art Centre of Palacký University.
This building which served for hundreds of years as a college related to the Moravian archbishopric is centrally located among other historic buildings atop the city walls. It overlooks a verdant park that separates the conference venue and the dormitory accommodations.

Traveling to the conference
From Prague to Olomouc: The easiest way to get from Václav Havel Airport Prague to the main train station (Praha, hlavní nádraží, sometimes abbreviated to Praha, hl. n.) is to take the Airport Express (AE) bus. It stops right in front of the arrival hall (a bit to the right, the last bus stop) and takes you directly to the main train station which is the terminus. You buy the ticket from the driver for Kč 60 (about EURO 2.5, but the driver does not accept foreign currencies, so you have to exchange money at the airport, try to have a 200 crown note or less). The ticket machines at the stop do not sell this ticket. Timetable here.
There are also coaches going directly from the Prague airport to Olomouc. More info at the Student Agency website, or call: +420 542 424 242 or +420 800 100 300.
