Entrance to and stay inside the Wallenstein Palace

There are some limitations related to the Wallenstein Palace due to the two facts:
1. the Wallenstein Palace is the seat of the Senate of the Czech Republic
2. the Wallenstein Palace is a historical building

Please, read carefully the following text to know about these limitations

The entrance to the Wallenstein Palace: it is a little more complicated because of the security reasons (the Palace is the seat of the Senate of the Czech Republic) - all participants need to pass the metal detection frame and their things have to be screened by x-rays similarly as at airports. So, participants are kindly asked to come to the Wallenstein Palace not at the last moment just before the beginning of lectures.

When entering and moving inside the Wallenstein Palace, all participants are requested to have with them their badges which they will receive during the registration; badges will also serve as the identity card for the security guards in the Wallenstein palace.

The Wallenstein Palace is the historical building and the conference participants will move in some historically precious rooms.
As a result participants have to obey following rules when in the Wallenstein Palace:
