English form of address:

University of Economics in Prague

The closest metro stations are Hlavní Nádraží (line C) and Náměstí republiky (line B). You can walk from those stations — it is about 15 minutes walk — or you can use tram #5, #9 and #26 and exit at Husinecká station (it is the first stop from Hlavní nádraží and the second stop from Náměstí republiky).

Room RB336 is located in so called “Paradisiac Building” (Rajská budova) on the floor number 3.

It is very easy to get to this room. Stand in front of Churchill’s statue and look in the same direction as Winston. Then turn to the right. You will see few stairs and entrance into the university. But you will not use this entrance. Instead you will walk around this building from the left. You should pass by crossbar for cars and then go straight to the entry into the “New Building” (Nová budova). Pass wall and lifts from the right side. In front of you you will see wide corridor with glass roof. Go through it and turn to the left before stairs. Take lift to floor number 3 (press number 3 in the lift). Leave the lift. Go through the glass doors and then go to the right. The room RB336 is just around the corner.

If you get lost try to follow signs of university navigation system or call Jirka at +420 604 924 664.

6 Objectives

  • Handling of last call comments, see comment list

    • For implementers to prepare: bring your problems to Prague and check whether you will be able to reach M3 at the end of January (test files completely run).

    • Download link or other kind of public link to your implementation: what will you provide by the Rome workshop?
    • Preparation needed: create a rough idea of the poster content and potential links, be able to present it in max. 5 min., so that people can comment in it.
    • Update "your" implementation descriptions listed at use cases - high level summary before the f2f and be prepared to give a short update on them during the f2f.
