CZECH REPUBLIC – Prague belongs to Congresses
Prague congress season is in full swing. September is traditionally the busiest and most important month of the year when Prague is flooded with thousands of congress delegates. This year, the capital of the Czech Republic hosts a number of significant congresses in the field of medicine, science and research or education.
This year, the congress season in Prague has started a little earlier than usual. Several major international events took place in the second half of August which, according to the statistics from previous years, is not a typical convention month. The season continued in early September when the 18th International Microscopy Congress was held; it was focused on research problems of atoms, molecules, nanostructures and cells using multidimensional microscopy. About 2,500 delegates had, among others, opportunity to attend specifically designed walk across Prague inspired by different microscopy applications in everyday life. The congress was organized by Guarant International.
In mid-September, a thousand of criminologists from all over the world came to Prague to attend the 14th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology (ESC) and discuss organized crime or the development of crime in Central Europe after the fall of communism.
The ongoing four-day EAIE Conference organized by C-IN is focused on higher education, its stimulation, quality increase and implementing its principals in practice at the international level. One of the main speakers at the conference is Jan Muehlfeit, President of Europe Microsoft Corporation.
These events will be followed by Prague European Days of Internal Medicine (PEDIM), 22nd Congress of the European Association for Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery (EACMFS) focused on issues of serious facial defects surgery, or the 12th International Symposium on Concrete Roads. Last week in September there will be the 17th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Clinical Virology (ESCV) which will take place in Prague after long 19 years.
Congress season in the capital of Prague, however, will not end in September. The following month will offer other significant international events of larger format, such as the 11th European Conference of Non-Destructive Testing (ECNDT 2014) or the 15th European Congress of Neurosurgery (EANS 2014). At the end of October, Prague will host the 16th Biennial Meeting of the European Society for Immunodeficiencies (ESID 2014).
