Please confirm your participation by sending a short message to eamba2016@mindful.cz .

Transport

Prague is at best reachable by airplane (Václav Have Airport, code PRG) or trains.

Transport to the hotel in Prague downtown from Václav Havel Airport is possible with public transport (40m), which is recommended: buy 72hrs ticket for all public transport at the airport (310CZK/12€), take bus 100 (don’t forget to validate the ticket for the first time) to Zličín, then take subway B to the station Karlovo Náměstí. Then walk about 300m to the hotel.

Taxis are also a possibility — use official yellow cabs standing in front of the arrival hall; ask for price in advance, it should not exceed 700CZK/22€ per ride, and request a receipt after you pay.

If you come by car, be careful to come before 3pm on Friday, otherwise one might hit traffic jam. Parking is very restricted in the city center, book a place in Central Parking Prague
which is at Karlovo Náměstí (Karl’s Square) in a convenient walking distance from both the hotel and the conference place. Leave the car there until departure, the best is to walk or use public transport during the conference.
