the west side of High Tatras
(the place of 1970 World Championship in
Nordic events located in the altitude of ~1350 m)
and is also the highest
climate spa in Slovak Republic.
Štrbské Pleso is located at the heart of the National

The workshop will take place in
three neighbouring hotels :
in between. Hotels are some 5-7 minutes of quiet walk apart
and also within walking distance (~1 km) of the train station
(Tatra Electric Railways to Starý Smokovec / Poprad and
cog wheel railway to Štrba).
The plenary sessions will take place in
Congress Hall of hotel Patria with conference
office nearby. The parallel sessions will take place
in two equipped seminar rooms of each of the three hotels.
9 Linux desktop computers connected
to Internet via 1 Mbyte/sec dedicated leased line will
be available for DIS 2004 participants in hotel Patria lobby near
the conference office to reach the home Institutes. To log in
follow the instructions attached to each computer.
Unfortunately due to the exclusive contract of hotel Patria with
Eurotel we are not allowed to install our WLAN server/hot spot
to provide Wi-Fi connection for DIS 2004 participants.
Instead of this we plan to provide some 10-20 standard cable connections
in hotel Patria lobby using dedicated DHCP server, which should allow you
to connect your notebook to Internet via our dedicated leased line.
If you nevertheless would like to use WLAN connection through Eurotel
you can buy the
at hotel reception for 396 Slovak crowns / 1 hour (~10 Euro / 1 hour).
In conference office 2 scanners will be available
to digitize especially the presentations available only on transparencies for
the web publishing after workshop.
Also b/w PostScript printer will be available
in conference office. There will be limited possibility to print b/w transparencies
and only very limited / emergency possibility to print also the color transparency.
