Information Geometry and its Applications IV
June 12-17, 2016, Liblice, Czech Republic
The conference will be held in the beautiful Liblice Castle Hotel.
Liblice Castle is one of the most compact monuments of the Bohemian high Baroque from the school of Italian architect Giovanni Battista Alliprandi, who elaborated a characteristic project of a new building upon an impulse of the contemporary owner of the dominion, Arnošt Josef Pachta of Rájov, who was later on promoted into countship. The last noble owner of the castle was the Valdštejn family. In 1945, the property passed into the ownership of the state, which transferred it under the administration of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
An extensive reconstruction of the castle, co-financed by the European Union funds, was completed in 2007, changing the premises into a modern conference and culturally-educational centre, a stylish castle hotel with restaurants and a relaxing wellness centre. It offers high comfort and hospitality to clients travelling either for business or for relaxation. The rooms are pleasantly furnished, there is a varied scale of restaurants, and perfectly equipped conference premises for different types of events guarantee a nice and productive stay to our guests.
Landscape park Kokorinsko
Kokořínsko is known for its picturesque landscape formed by various bizarre sandstone rocks, crystal-clear lakes, deep forests and one of the most romantic of all Czech castles. Wander through a region that seems to have tumbled out of the prettiest of picture postcards.
Kokořín Castle was built in the first half of the 14th century by order of Hynek Berka z Dubé. It was heavily damaged during the Hussite Wars and stood in ruins until the reconstruction campaign of 1911–1918. It has been designated a national cultural landmark since 2001.
