Entry Formalities
All foreign visitors to the Czech Republic must possess a passport valid for at least the next three months. Participants requiring visa should apply in advance to consular offices of the Czech Republic or diplomatic missions in their countries in order to avoid delay in travel to the Congress.

Currency and Banking
Czech Crowns are the official currency in the Czech Republic. Foreign currency exchange is available at Prague International Airport and at most hotels, banks and exchange offices throughout the city. International credit cards are accepted for payment in hotels, restaurants and shops. Paying by cash in Euro is also possible in some restaurants and shops. FX rates can be found at http://www.cnb.cz/en/index.html

Most shops in Prague are open from 9:00 to 18:00, Monday through Saturday. Shops in the city centre are usually open from 9:00 to 20:00, Monday through Sunday.

Service is usually included in the bill in bars and restaurants, but tips are welcome. If you consider the service good enough to warrant a tip, we suggest about ten percent.

The Czech Republic uses a 230 volt 50 Hz system, sockets are the standard European type and two-prong round pin plugs, with a hole for a male grounding pin. To use electric appliances from your country you may need a special voltage converter with an adapter plug.

Liability and Insurance
The organizers do not accept responsibility for individual medical, travel or personal insurance and all participants are strongly advised to take out their own personal insurance before travelling to the Congress.
