Prague, Czech Republic
Our previous East West Conference
8 - 15 July 2018
Watch the famous astronomical clock in Old Town Square go through its machinations with the rest of the tourists before walking a few blocks to discover ancient chapels, hidden courtyards, authentic restaurants and old-fashioned bars with hardly a tourist in sight.
Much of the city serves as testament to the rise of the řemyslids, the first documented Bohemian native dynasty and every internecine struggle for power within that family (and the later rulers and their competitors: the Jagellons, Charles IV, the Habsburgs and the Catholic Church, to name just the major players)
The Prague Castle dominates the city’s skyline, its variety of styles and influences perfectly illustrating the shifting demands of its occupants and conquerors over the last millennium.
Nowhere else in Prague resonates with as much national identity and symbolism, increased by the pride Czechs have taken since having had the castle returned to them in 1989.
Modern Prague offers an eclectic blend of the weird and wonderful. David Černý has peppered the city with his weird and witty sculptures, contrasting against stunning architecture, including the soaring spires of Gothic, the grandeur of Baroque and the romance of Art Nouveau.
Academic Program and Accreditation
All sessions are conducted by practitioners and leading academics. However, our program structure is unique to CPE Conferences. Over the last 20 years we have adopted a model that allows us to accommodate local and VIP speakers whom, due to professional demands were unable to confirm their availability, would otherwise be unable to share their international perspective.
For our conference in Prague, in addition to these sessions, we held multiple academic field activities, including a private guided tour of the Museum of Communism, the Baroque Library, Klementinum and a tour of Terezín - a redbrick baroque fortress town designed in the 18th Century by the Habsburg emperors to defend against the Prussian.
Our conference structures numerous social events to allow for networking in relaxed settings. We encourage all delegates to attend the social events as the information exchange is deemed invaluable by many participants as well as it being an opportunity for you to discover more of this exciting conference location.
Both conference attendees and accompanying persons can take part in all activities. Separate fees may apply.
