Location (Venue)

In order to help people socialize and exchange new ideas, the Spring School – a Week of Doctoral Studies at Faculty of Science, will be organized as a single-building-conference. That is, accommodation for all participants, full-board meals, together with all lecture rooms will be in Atrium Hotel, Novy Smokovec, High Tatras, Slovakia.

Smokovec is an administrative centre (actually, a tiny town) of Tatra National Park, the most compact mountains in Europe, i.e., of alpine type, but occupying a very small area. Among others, the High Tatras offer exceptionally clean air. During winters, the area is visited by tourists searching for best ski slopes, suitable for children and skiing beginners as well as for ski champions. (See e.g. www.tanap.sk or www.tatry.net)

Nový Smokovec

The New Smokovec was the first settlement in the High Tatras that was open also in winter (since 1883). The first cinema was open in 1913. The current sanatorium for tuberculosis and other respiration illnesses was open in 1925 and a modern sanatorium-house Palace was open in 1933. New hotels were added close before the World Ski Championship in 1970.
