Welcome to the CONSTELLATION Work Package 2 interim meeting in Prague

The meeting will be held between the 14th and 17th of September at the headquarters of the Czech Academy of Sciences at Národní 3 in the centre of Prague.

The venue is opposite the National Theatre (shown to the right) and less than a hundred metres from the river Vltava (map).

You can use the links to the left to register for the meeting, submit an abstract and book accommodation.

Please book your accommodation as soon as possible, since some hotels can only offer discounted rates for a limited time.

The deadline for abstract submission is August 31st.

The other links provide information about the meeting, travel to Prague and finding accommodation which we hope you will find useful. If you have any questions, please contact the organisers.

Prague is a city with a very long history and many connections with astronomy. Tycho Brahe worked here and died here (he is buried in the gothic Church of Our Lady Before Tyn on the Old Town Square) and other luminaries such as Johannes Kepler (on Brahe's invitation), Christian Doppler, Ernst Mach and Albert Einstein have all called Prague home.
