The summer school will take place in the campus of the VSB-Technical University of Ostrava which is located in the city of Ostrava. The campus is located at the very edge of the city in the district of Poruba. The district of Poruba is approximately 20 minutes far by bus or tram from Ostrava City Center.
Ostrava is the third largest city in the Czech Republic. It is located in the north-eastern part of the state close to the borders with Poland and Slovakia. Ostrava, nicknamed the ‘steel city’, has a rich history of steel production, coal mining, machinery, engineering, and technologies. Today, the city’s economy is transforming quickly towards high-tech and information industry. One of the most valuable of Ostrava's historical industrial facilities is the more than one hundred years old Vítkovice. Vítkovice has been recently recognized as a European heritage and it is currently under heavy re-development. It was open to public during the Spring of 2012 and hosted a number of international events including the Colours of Ostrava International Music Festival and City cross sprint Ostrava, a cross-country skiing competition. The New Vítkovice Park is now one of the premier conference and congress locations in the Czech Republic. More information about the city can be found at official site.
In the outskirts of Ostrava city, residents and visitors of Ostrava enjoy the lush green scenery of Moravian and Silesian countryside. The climate is mild and continental. Typical late summer temperatures can be anywhere between 20 – 25 Celsius, but it is not uncommon to experience a colder or warmer climate.
