BIOGEOMON
9th International Symposium
on Ecosystem Behavior
August 20-24, 2017

Venue

BIOGEOMON 2017 will be held in the UNESCO-protected Chateau of Litomyšl, 140 km east of Prague.

The conference center is situated in the renovated Baroque brewery, the birthplace of the famous Czech composer Bedřich Smetana, and the adjacent Riding School. Four concurrent technical sessions are planned. The Renaissance Chateau was built in 1568-1581, and is known for its unique black-and-white sgraffito work. The beautifully preserved city center, with a large historic marketplace, is located 5 minutes from the symposium venue. Between 1344 and 1554, Litomyšl was a wealthy seat of a wealthy bishop.
