THE CONFERENCE VENUE
The conference will be held in Pruhonice, the village 2 km behind the border of Prague. The village is strongly influenced by two research facilities located in Pruhonice:
The Institute of Botany of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic
The Institute of Botany keeps a large park founded by Silva Tarouca with the oldest rock gargen in the Czech Republic and also one of the oldest in EU (131 years).
The Silva Tarouca Research Institute for Landscape and Ornamental Gardening (RILOG)
The RILOG keeps a large Dendrological garden that was founed originally as a repository garden for ornamental woody plant germplam, but now it is designed as a park. The congress center and hotel where the conference will be held, belong to RILOG. The complex was reconstructed and now represents a farm yard complex.
