The meting will be held at aula of Collegium Novum at Jagiellonian University.
Jagiellonian University, Cracow Academy otherwise, is the oldest university in Poland, the second oldest university in Central Europe and one of the oldest universities in the world. It was founded in 1364 by Casimir III the Great on the model of the Italian academies in Bologna and Padua. Renovated in 1400, by Queen Jadwiga and King Ladislaus II Jagiello according to the formula of the University of Paris.
The Grand College, or Collegium Maius, was rebuilt by the end of the 15th century as a splendid late-Gothic edifice around a vast courtyard with surrounding arcades and a well of 1517 in the center. Professors lived and worked upstairs, while lecturing downstairs. In the 1490s they had Copernicus among their students, and the astronomer that revolutionized entire European science remains the most illustrious of Krakow university’s graduates together with Pope John Paul II. Over centuries a whole university quarter has arisen around the Collegium Maius, while the old college became first the university library and then the university museum rich in unrivalled exhibits. The beautiful college courtyard is accessible daylong (and on odd evenings when it provides picturesque background for open-air theatre or musical events) whereas the upstairs museum closes early.
