Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics

25 - 30 July 2011, Prague, Czech Republic

Social Events

(subject to change)

An encompassing social program is planned which will include tours and a number of very special events unavailable to the general tourist. The organizing committee plans to organize the number of social events in order that participants may enjoy not only physics but also Prague during the conference, sometimes in a way, which is hardly available to common visitors of Prague.

Participants of FQMT'11 conference will have a really exceptional chance to spend some time in the Wallenstein Palace garden. This could be an interesting experience for all participants and their partners since FQMT'11 participants will have an exceptional opportunity to enjoy the large Baroque garden of the Wallenstein Palace with its nice Sala Terrena for discussions during the Monday evening welcome party. There is also a good chance (this will depend on the program of the Senate of the Czech Republic) that it will be possible to organize the guided tour through the whole huge Baroque complex of the Wallenstein Palace. This would be an exceptional experience by itself since it is difficult to see all these places under ordinary circumstances.

The conference dinner will be held at the Prague castle and its price will be low taking into account the exceptional location. Dinner participants will hopefully enjoy a guided tour through the Prague castle and especially they will visit also its beautiful Saint Vitus gothic cathedral. A very special part of this event will be the evening concert in the Cathedral which will be performed by excellent musicians, including the organist of the Cathedral and the Trumpeters of the Prague Castle Guards.
