CMSB 2018 will be held in Brno, at Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University.
Brno is small enough that trams and walking are normally the best ways to get around. There is very little parking so driving isn’t recommended. The conference venue can be easily reached by public transport – tram 1, tram 6, from Hrnčířská and trolley 32 from Botanická. More information about transport in Brno here.
