Kohlrausch Seminar

Prague, 15 – 17 June 2017

In 1897 Friedrich Kohlrausch published his paper Ueber Concentrations-Verschienbungen durch Electrolyse im Inneren von Lösungen und Lösungsgemischen, Annalen der Physik und Chemie, 62, 1897. Here he derived his “Beharrliche Function”, now called Kohlrausch regulating function. The paper greatly contributed to the understanding of electrophoresis and stimulated further development of the field.

In memory of 120 year anniversary of the appearance of the Kohlrausch paper we organize the Kohlrausch Seminar where we remind Kohlrausch’s legacy and, mainly, we revise what we know about electrophoresis these days and what are future challenges in the field.

The seminar will be held at the Faculty of Science, which is located in Albertov, a nice slice of Prague. The accommodation of the participants is booked in the Karolinum hotel in the very center of the city (10 rooms) or in neighboring hotels for three nights: 15/16 June, 16/17 June, 17/18 June.

Practical information

The most recent information on Prague’s transportation system can be found on the official website.

Metro

The Prague Metro network consists of 3 lines designated by letters and differentiated by colour: A - green colour (Depo Hostivar station – Nemocnice Motol), B - yellow colour (Cerny most station - Zlicin station), C - red colour (Letnany - Haje station), with transfers possible at Museum station (lines A and C), Mustek station (lines A and B), Florenc station (lines B and C). Metro operates daily from 5:00 to 24:00.

Tram

Daytime operation is from 4:30 to 24:00. Nighttime operation is from 00:30 to 4:30 and is provided by tram numbers 51 to 58 with traffic intervals of 30 minutes. The central transfer-station for night-time lines is Lazarska stop. Complete schedules are located at individual stops or online.

Bus

The daytime and night-time operation of buses is similar to tram operation. Night-time service is provided by bus numbers 501 to 514. Complete bus schedules are located at individual stops or online.

Taxi

When taking a taxi, make sure the taxi is equipped with a permanently installed yellow roof lamp with the TAXI sign in black letters. The registration number, company name and price list including the base rate, rate per kilometer and one-minute-waiting rate must be displayed on both front doors of the cab. These prices must correspond with the prices set on the meter in the cab. Customers are recommended to order a taxi with non-stop dispatching offices where the information on fares is available in advance.

Prague City Transport Fares

Travelling by city transport is possible with a valid ticket only. Passengers have to obtain their tickets before boarding the vehicle or entering the Metro system. The ticket is valid only if marked in the validation appliance. Click here to see detailed information on public transport fares.

Ticket Inspection

The validity of tickets can be checked by the transit inspection of Prague public transport company at any time during travel or stay in the Metro system. The ticket inspector is entitled to ask the passenger to produce his or her valid ticket, to confiscate invalid tickets, and to collect a penalty (1500 CZK, if paid at once 800 CZK) in case of travel without a valid ticket. In case of unpaid freight / luggage the inspector collects a penalty (200 CZK, if paid at once 100 CZK). To prove their identity, inspectors produce yellow-and-red badges. They issue receipts for the penalty amounts.

Maps, timetables, fares and route planning are available in English on the Prague Public Transport website. You can also check map of Prague metro stations.
