Join conference delegates for a fun evening in support of ISCB Travel Fellowships at U Fleků. The Brewery and Restaurant U Fleků is one of the most famous and most visited Czech cultural venues in Prague.

The first written recording of the venue dates back to 1499 when the house was bought by maltster Vít Skřemenec. The brewery U Fleků is thus the only brewery in Central Europe which has been brewing continuously for over 500 years. The brewery was nationalised with the onset of the communist rule. The original owners, the Brtník family, regained the brewery and restaurant in 1991, after the fall of the regime. U Fleků is not only the most famous Czech restaurant, but also a pilgrimage site for all beer lovers, both Czech and foreign. The restaurant offers Old-Bohemian dishes with true Czech charm

Delegates are invited to join the CAMDA crowd for great food and informal discussion at the Na Blbym Miste Restaurant. We will meet in front of the convention center at 7:10pm to head there together. Alternatively, you can make your own way. From the convention center, take the underground to the city center (Line C heading north) and exit at the 2nd stop (Muzeum). Then walk to the top of Vaclavske namesti (Wenceslau Square), walk down, take the 3rd turn left (Stepanska ul.) and turn right at the next corner (street V Jame).

This part of Prague was originally built by special decree of Charles IV in the 14th century. The restaurant is in a street with restaurants called Jama (The Pit) and Kyvadlo (The Pendulum). Our restaurant's name translates as "At the wrong place". Draw your own conclusions...

Networking Event: Minorities and Women in Science

Sunday, July 23, 7:00 pm

Location: Esprit Restaurant, Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Hotel (pay your own way dinner/drinks)

On behalf of the ISCB “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)” community, we invite you to our networking event within ISMB-ECCB 2017. The aim of this social event is to facilitate active discussions on the fair visibility of minorities and women in the scientific community.

You are also invited to join the BoFs organized by the EDI community members BoF A4: Promoting gender diversity in Bioinformatics on Saturday, July 22 (12:45 - 1:45 in Terrace 1 and 5:30-6:30 within BOSC in Meeting Hall IV) and BoF B5: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in ISCB and in Bioinformatics? on Monday, July 24 (12:45 - 1:45 in Meeting Hall IA).

We as a part of the EDI community, seek to bring down any barriers faced by members of underrepresented groups and serve as a guide to ISCB on these issues in going forward. We would like to increase and encourage diversity in all its forms, including (but not limited to) academic backgrounds, subject matter, gender, ethnicity, and geographic location. The forum is a place to have general discussions, share resources, find support, and promote the value of diversity within our field.
