After Ilkley, UK and Karlskrona, Sweden, the next HET-NETs conference will be held at Zakopane, Poland.

Zakopane, informally known as "the winter capital of Poland," lies about 100 km to the south of Kraków, ancient capital of Poland.

Zakopane is beautifully situated at the foot of the Tatra Mountains, the only alpine mountain range in the Carpathian Mountains, close to the border with Slovakia.

The HET-NET conference will take place in the GEOVITA Zakopane conference center.

We have negotiated a special room prices which will be available for reservation up to the end of November. We strongly recommend early hotel reservation as the Zakopane is a popular winter resort in Poland and may be quite busy in January. Some other hotels can be found in Zakopane within walking distance of the conference, but we really think that staying at Geovita is the most convenient choice.

For those who enjoy swimming, the Aqua Park Zakopane complex housing indoor and outdoor geotermal pools, is situated next to the conference hotels.

You can find the current web-cam views over Zakopane and near-by mountains here.
