A special conference bus from Prague to Paseky will leave on

from the place located near the building of

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics,
Charles University,
Sokolovska 83,
PRAHA 8 - Karlin
The transportation from Prague to Paseky and back is a part of the conference service.

The building of the faculty will be opened from from 9 a.m., so you can leave your luggage there to have some walk, or just relax, have coffee, tea and cake, meet the organizers and ask questions, ... or e.g. pay your conference fee.

See the map of the whole Prague below to get an idea of the part of the city in which the faculty building is located (marked by the red rectangle):

Prague map

On the following map, the part of the city marked by the red rectangle above is magnified to the full size. Another red rectangle gives you still better approximation of the location of the faculty building. As you can see, it is pretty near to the center of the city - the main square (Vaclavske namesti) is marked by yelow circle.

Another enlargement of the red square onto the full size map gives you the overview of the local situation. The building of Faculty of Mathematics and Physics is located approximately 100 meters from the metro station KRIZIKOVA (line "B", or the "yellow line" of the Prague metro system):

o How to reach the meeting point

To get to the Faculty building from the airport you can take bus No. 119 from the airport to the metro terminal DEJVICKA, (line A - the green one), use line A to MUSTEK and change lines to the line B (the yellow line). Then you use line B, direction CERNY MOST, to the station KRIZIKOVA. This trip will last about 1 hour.

All main railway stations are directly connected to the metro net, and you should reach the meeting point within 30 minutes from any of them. We recommend to consult city maps and other information available on metro stations. In case of any trouble please contact the organizers (see below for contact addresses).

o Last Conference Day, Sunday, June 10: Paseky to Prague

The special conference bus from Paseky will arrive to Prague on

Sunday, June 10, 2001 at 11:00.

The bus will stop near the Faculty building at Sokolovska 83. Any extras on your departure from Paseky will be solved at the conference place. The transportation from Prague to Paseky and back is a part of the conference service.

o Paying the fee

The first possibility of paying the fee is to use the direct bank transfer to the account with the folowing data:
 account name:     Univerzita Karlova v Praze
 account number:   38330-021/0100 
 variable symbol:  306 00 1012

The participants are asked to write the complete account name and number (including variable symbol) and the name and address of the bank in the payment order. All payments must be free of bank charges to the receiver, i.e., all bank charges for effecting the international money transfer must be met by the remitter.

Alternatively, you can pay your conference fee in advance by cheque, bearing the designation "Fluid Mechanics" and participant's name. This cheque should be made payable and sent to the organizers (see mailing address below).

The third possibility is to pay by cash after the arrival to Prague. Please note that we want to avoid financial problems. If you decide for this variant we wish to emphasize that we rely on your participation.

In case of any problem that could make your participation impossible please inform us immediately.

We would appreciate if you choose the variant for the payment of fee and let us know about it i.e. by email.

o The conference place - basic information

Wearing of SLIPPERS (or any other home shoes) inside the hotel is necessary! The owners of the house insist on this.

We also recommend to consider an appropriate clothing and shoes for walks and hikes in the almost-mountain terrain (elev. 800 - 1300 m). In the beginning of June, the outside temperatures should be within the range of +15 to +25 Celsius. Be prepared for summer rains and/or occasional storms.

The hotel The accommodation consists of rooms for 2 or 3 people. All rooms are equipped with a bathroom, TV set and a radio receiver with alarm clock. There is a public telephone machine located near the main hall of the hotel. You need Czech telephone cards (Telecom) to be able to make calls from this machine. However, you can buy these cards by the reception desk. In the public part of the hotel you find e.g. fitness room, billiard room, sauna and a public bar, opened daily 20.00-00.00 (8.00 to 12.00 p.m.).

There is an electronically guarded parking place nearby the hotel. There is no direct email or Internet connection available in the hotel. Our experience is that this is often considered as one of the advantages of the place.

Full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is a part of the conference fee, except drinks. You can buy drinks during the meal times from the hotel stuff, or at the bar during the bar time or from the coffee machine and coke machine 24 hours a day. You will need Czech coins to operate these two machines.

o Papers and Preprints

Paperboxes in the conference place It is more or less a tradition to organize an "Exhibition of articles of participants" during the school. For that reason please do not forget to bring along preprints/reprints of your work (not necessarily recent) to Paseky. Everybody will get a "mailbox" (see picture) in the conference place, where he/she can exhibit his/her papers/books to make them accessible for other participants during the conference time.

o Short communications

The participants of the conference can present their results in a form of a (very) short communication. We expect that the length of these communications will be (according to their number) set to 10-15 minutes. The participants can use overhead projector (which is, in fact, recommended).

o Contact addresses, visa

If you need an official letter of a special kind to confirm your participation or you have any queries please contact us.

In particular, it is important to check whether you need or don't need visa to enter Czech Republic. Please contact us immediately in case this is true, and you need some special letter from us.
