The UMAP 2017 conference welcome drink will be held in Bratislava city’s representative halls of the Primate’s palace. This classical building is one of the major landmarks of Bratislava and bears considerable historical significance. The palace’s Hall of Mirrors is the place, where the peace treaty between Napoleonic France and Austrian Empire was signed (followed immediately after the battle of Austerlitz).
The conference participants will be welcomed in the Hall of Mirrors and greeted by Mayor of Bratislava, Mr. Ivo Nesrovnal, who also took the auspices over UMAP 2017 conference.
Conference dinnerTuesday, July 11th, 6:30 PM
Bratislava Flagship Restaurant
Address: Námestie SNP 8, Bratislava
The conference dinner will be held at Bratislava Flagship Restaurant. The restaurant’s cuisine and style sources from traditions of Slovakia (and in particular, Bratislava). At the conference dinner, we will have our university folklore ensemble Technik to sing and dance for us.
The monumental space, in which the restaurant is housed, has originally served as cinema. The building is also facing a plaza named after Slovak National Uprising and has been a witness of national upheavals throughout modern Slovak history.
UMAP will confer the UMAP best paper award and two the James Chen Best Student Paper awards during the conference dinner.
Both places are in the Old Town center.
