CAMTP home 9th International Summer School/Conference
at the University of Maribor, Slovenia
22 June - 6 July 2014


During the whole period of the School/Conference there will be the International Maribor Summer Festival "Lent 2014", each evening offering at least four to five cultural events (performances), among which you can freely choose, including theatre, opera & ballet, symphonic and chamber music concerts, jazz performances, folkloristic festival performed by groups from all over the world, etc... The quality level is substantial, some of the best artists in the world come to Maribor, especially in the domain of jazz. For example, in 1996 we even had Ray Charles. And much more. All performances are taking place either at various open air places/squares in the old medieval part of the town, called "Lent", by the river Drava, or inside some historic buildings in the same city quarter, or in the opera, theatre or other concert halls in the city. The entrance is free for our participants (it is fully covered by the participation fee), and the entrance tickets (cards) will be distributed together with other conference materials upon your arrival in Maribor. Reservations, if necessary, can be made (in block) for the interested persons by the assisting staff to the Conference (registration desks). The detailed programme (programme brochure) of the Festival performances will be available and distributed upon your arrival in Maribor. The entrance card is the entrance ticket for almost all performances, only for some exceptional events there is a certain but small surcharge. Also, upon your arrival, together with the conference materials, you will receive the book "Facts about Slovenia", to guide you through our country. We shall also have five private concerts and other nice social events, and a number of public evening lectures by some eminent thinkers, scientists, philosophers, and engineers.

On Saturday morning, 28 June 2014, we shall have the presentations of the short reports, until lunch time. Then, on the same Saturday afternoon, 28 June 2014, after lunch, there will be a tour through the city of Maribor followed by a wine tasting of some best Slovenian wines in Maribor. On the same Saturday evening there will be the banquet and the closing festivity of the folkloristic part of the Festival "Lent 2014", accompanied by a big firework performance starting at 23:45 and lasting until 00:15.

On Sunday, 29 June 2014, there will be an excursion to some of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. The participation will be charged extra (about 100.-EUR per person). That will cover everything, the transportation, the (high-level) lunch (at lake Bled) and dinner (in Ljubljana) and the entrance fees (the worldfamous Postojna Cave, one of the largest in the world). For those participants who have already seen this tour alternative excursions will be organized.
