Event Image

hello judges,

thanks for your interest in visiting our summer conference! The conference will be held on September 10-12 in hotel Talsky Mlyn in Zdar nad Sazavou. Although most participants will arrive with a car (there will be carsharing doc), you can use a direct train from Prague/Brno.
You can see some photos of the venue here

Facebook event here: TBA

We plan to run 1 seminar track for the whole program. The conference language will be in English, unless all participants are Czechs.

Since the detailed preparation of the program very much depends on the number of judges/presenters, if you are likely to arrive, please apply ASAP – don`t wait for the application deadline!
We also have quite a limited number of rooms. The estimated conference cap at this moment is approx. 20 participants, which also means that we will prefer applications from judges from our region to others, in case we will be about to reach it.


We are looking for presentators! If you would like to present a topic and share your knowledge with others, please mention this in your application and/or contact David Zalesky as early as possible. David can also help to assign you a popular topic, if you are not sure what to present.

There will be no seminars on Friday. We plan to spend the afternoon/evening with social activities. Various group entertainment proposals will be posted in special thread.
Some suggestions: BBQ party, beachvolleyball, swimming, hike, sauna, minigolf, Magic tournament, beer and chat,….


On Saturday there will be mandatory seminars, starting from 9.00am. After Meet&Greet we are planning to run about 3-4 presentations, followed by a late lunch (around 1pm) After lunch and siesta there will be another 1-2 sessions. This will last until around 16-17.00.
Afterwards several social activities are planned: (preliminary suggestions include BBQ party, beachvolleyball, swimming, hike, sauna, minigolf, Magic tournament, dinner in the city….and indeed the legendary KVIZOBEH 🙂


Seminars on Sunday (morning) are mandatory and there will be about 3 workshops starting from 9.00. After the lunch there will be an official conference end at about 14:00.
