CALL for PAPERS and for REGISTRATION

We call on scholars, students and other interested persons for papers relating to Czech and Slovak culture, society and affairs and the two countries’ relations with the US, Canada and the Western world, generally. As has been SVU practice, the participants from America can submit topics on almost any subject of human endeavor, including the arts, the humanities, social sciences, science and technology, medicine, agriculture, environment, law, business, civil society, library & information science, computers, etc.

You are also asked to register as soon as possible so that we’ll know how many of you will participate and to assure that you’ll get accommodations and others services you wish. Please note that we have negotiated extremely low prices for accommodations and that the registration fee entitles you to a large number of services free of charge. The price we charge is a real steal! Take also advantage of special excursions and tour we have planned for you! This will be a great event which you will not want to miss!

This will be and extraordinary event, if not the pivotal event of the year for anyone interested in Czech or Slovak culture and affairs, which will be attended by a large number of participants from all over the world, especially from the United States. The details about the Congress can be found on the SVU Website: www.svu2000.org

As has been our practice, the subjects covered on the program will encompass just about every aspect of human endeavor, including the arts, humanities, social sciences, science & technology, medicine, agriculture, environment, politics, civil society, law, business & trade, media & information, tourism, etc. This time we are putting some emphasis on science and technology, including medicine.
