Dear members of DIMATIA Scientific board 

Dear DIMATIA partners 


As you know our international centre DIMATIA is becoming of age. The founding document was prepared in the fall 1996 and signed on Feb 19,1997. Since several other complementary agreements with domestic and other institutions worldwide were signed so that today DIMATIA has 17 active members. Today thanks to mutual support and out overall activity DIMATIA supports meetings, visits and prizes worldwide and played important role in EU grants and other grants and networks. Since these initial modest beginnings. 


To commemorate this 10th anniversary of DIMATIA founding we organize common meeting of the scientific advisory board and the representatives of all participating institutions. 


The meeting will be held on Friday April 27,2007 and Saturday April 28,2007 in our newly restored building at Malostranské náměsti 25, Praha 1. The tentative programme of the meeting is enclosed.


We hope that you will find time to come. The meeting will give use not only the possibility to review the part but also do discuss the future plans.


Please let us know whether you will be able to come and whether there will be other people from your site participating. So that we can reserve the accommodation accordingly. You will have no expenses while in Prague. 


DIMATIA fest will be part of DIMATIA week, which will cover the whole week April 23-28. 

For your information we are enclosing the programme of the whole week. 

Of course your are welcome to come for the whole week. Please let us know.  


See you at DIMATIA fest 

With best regards
