**************************************************************************

The twenty-fourth International Conference on TEXT, SPEECH and DIALOGUE (TSD2021), Olomouc, Czech Republic, September 06-09, 2021
http://www.tsdconference.org

IMPORTANT

TSD2021 is going to take place in the beautiful city of Olomouc, Czech Republic. Thus, it is nicely colocated with Interspeech 2021 which is going to take place in Brno, Czech Republic. Olomouc is only 77 km (48 mi) away from Brno (30-45 min by car, 1 hour by public transport).

COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS

As the situation in September 2021 cannot be easily predicted, the TSD2021
PC members are ready to organize a virtual conference, if necessary.

PC members have a good experience with it from TSD2020,
A virtual conference would mean significantly decreased conference fees.
If the majority of participants can travel to the Czech Republic, the onsite mode of the conference will be preferred. For others, there would be special virtual sessions.

All measures have been taken to ensure that the organization of the TSD 2021 conference in September 2021 is not threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

LOCATION

Olomouc is a beautiful place on the Morava river with more than a thousand-year-long history. Once a capital of Moravia – one of the three historical Lands of the Bohemian Crown – nowadays, it still somehow waits to be rediscovered. The world-renowned tourist guide Lonely Planet alerted to this fact by putting Olomouc onto the list of TOP 10 tourist destinations not to be missed during a visit to Europe. It even claimed Olomouc is one of the most unappreciated destinations in the Czech Republic.

By its beauty, Olomouc can, however, easily compete with not only Prague but any other most sought spots around Europe. It certainly deserves our attention.

One can find there the second most important urban conservation zone in the Czech Republic, surrounded by splendorous parks, an incredible concentration of ecclesiastical structures, UNESCO-protected monuments, and even a horolog with a history maybe more interesting than the Prague one. All together safe from the neverending bustle of large cities…

The most important monument in Olomouc is the Holy Trinity Column standing in the central square. It represents the largest group of Baroque statues in one structure in Central Europe. Apart from many historical buildings such as Olomouc castle with the gothic cathedral of St. Wenceslas or the former Olomouc fortress, another interesting point about Olomouc is the astronomical clock, designed in the spirit of Socialist Realism.

The city of Olomouc has a convenient location close to the geographic centre of Moravia (a historical region in the east of the Czech Republic), on the banks of the river Morava. The place forms an important highway and railroad junction; thus, it is easily accessible using both individual and public means of transport.

Olomouc lies 260 km (162 mi) eastwards from the Czech capital Prague, and 210 km (130 mi) from both the Slovakian capital Bratislava and the Austrian capital Vienna. The closest international airports are 77 km (48 mi) away in Brno, and 202 km (126 mi) away in Katowice in Poland.


We are very excited about the fact that the TSD2021 is going to take place in such a fabulous, unique and rich in history city as Olomouc.
