The organizers believe that the social dimension of the conference is a natural extension of its scholary program. The Friday evening, February 12th, at 19:00, is the time of the Social Dinner in 2016.
As in previous years, The Great Monastery Restaurant has been selected to host the Social Dinner.
Founded A.D. 1140 by Duke Vladislav II. of Bohemia, the Strahov Monastery became a traditional centre of knowledge with its priceless library, today of 200 thousand books, including about three thousand manuscripts.
The organizers hope that XML Prague participants will feel comfortably in the intimate vicinity of such a huge amount of, sometimes rather vaguely structured, data.
The Monastery also serves as The Museum of Czech Literature today.
And as elsewhere in Europe, monks are renown for mastering the beer brewing….
How to get there
The Monastery overlooks the city historic quarters and the Prague Castle. There is public transport connection to the Monastery, by the tramway line No. 22 to the Pohorelec stop. Use Prague Public Transport planner IDOS to find a suitable connection, or ask organizers for connection suggestions.
XML Prague Night is a social dinner, that is open to XML Prague participants with the full-pass option, and for their accompanying persons with the supplementary social dinner pass.
The Beer Station is sponsored by le-tex this year.
