Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics

29 July - 3 August 2013, Prague, Czech Republic

Social Events, Concerts

(subject to change)

An encompassing social program includes the number of social events and tours 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'13 conference will have a chance to spend some time in the Wallenstein Palace garden. This could be an interesting experience for all participants and their partners since FQMT'13 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. It will be organized 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.

In keeping with the multidisciplinary character of the scientific program, the cultural richness of the city of Prague and the tradition of the previous FQMT conferences, the FQMT’13 program will feature concerts of classical and jazz music performed by world-class musicians, held at outstanding venues of the city: Dvořák's Hall of Rudolfinum (the seat of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and famous by concerts of Prague Spring Festival), St. Simon and Juda Church (the Prague Symphonic orchestra FOK) and the gothic Cathedral of St. Vitus at Prague Castle (one of the symbols of the Czech lands).

During concerts of classical music, the participants will enjoy works by e.g. Jeremiah Clarke, Georg Philipp Telemann, Hildegarda of Bingen, Heinrich I. F. Biber, Johann Pezelius, Max Reger, Pavel J. Vejvanovský, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonín Dvořák and George Gershwin.

The conference dinner will be held in Archbishop's Palace at the Prague Castle. Dinner participants will hopefully enjoy a guided tour through the Palace 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.
