VENUE

 The conference will be held in the beautiful city of Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, at the conference hall of the Masarykova College, the Czech Technical University (the same as in 2006 and 2018). The Masarykova College is located in the western part of central Prague, near the Prague Castle, the dominant symbol of Prague, in the direction to the Ruzyne airport, close by to the Dejvicka underground station (line A). It is also well served by tram and buses. The best way to reach the venue from the airport is to use the bus No. 119, which goes from the airport (it has a stop at terminal 1 and 2 as well) to the Veleslavin underground station and then use the underground line A (two stations) to the mentioned Dejvicka underground station.

RIM - GENERAL INFORMATION

Radon intercomparison measurement will be organized at two reference sites (chosen from three reference sites established in 2000, located 60 km SW of Prague near the city Milín in the Czech Republic, accessible for cars). During this RIM we would like to focus not only on comparison of resulting soil-gas radon concentrations, but on the sampling methods themselves. Radon intercomparison measurement will be organized for single participants or groups of participants. Results of tests will be anonymous, each participant (group) will be denoted by a code.

More detailed information will be available at the workshop webpage, details will be discussed with all participants of RIM via e-mail. 

Accommodation: Please, take into consideration, that this year “only” one-day intercomparison is hold. Suitable accommodation, just in the area of radon reference sites, is available in “Hotel u Milina” (www.hotelumilina.cz).

Workshop field excursion

Workshop field excursion will be organized on Friday at the end of the workshop (an optional activity with a special fee).

Expected time of departure – Friday, September, 25th, at about 8,30 in the morning; expected time of arrival to Prague -  Friday, September 25th at about 17,00 – 18,00 in the evening.
