Parking in the neighborhood of the Philosophy Faculty

The two parking places adjacent to the building of the Philosophy Faculty will be closed during the conference (red stripes on map). Please use the other parking possibilities (green stripes). Free parking places are usually available in the unpaid parking on the right site of the intersection of streets Branišovská and Větrná (300 m from the building of Philosophy Faculty) You can also park your car in the streets neighboring with Branišovská Street in the north. These unpaid parking places are used by local residents. There are usually some free places in streets Emy Destinové, J. Opletala and Větrná (approximately between 200 and 500 m from the building of the Philosophy Faculty). Free parking places are always available in front of the Billa and Albert supermarkets (600 and 700 m from the building of the Philosophy Faculty). Parking on the on the South Bohemia University campus lot (south of Branišovská Street) is rather tricky since they are usually full and it is difficult to get there.

RNA Club Awards
An exciting new addition to this year's conference is the awarding of prizes for the best contributions to the RNA club by young researchers
(students and post doctoral fellows to the age of 35).

Two awards providing substantial support (registration fee, travel expenses) for attending RNA 2011 Annual Meeting in Kyoto, Japan (June
14-19, 2011) - only members of Czech labs are eligible for one of the prizes, the other prize is open to all participants

Two 2011 Memberships to the RNA Society (including access to RNA Journal)
- open to all participants.


Awards are co-sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic and by the RNA Society
