AIMRI Meeting – “Research in Central & Eastern Europe?”

Friday 2 November 2012 – Prague

What is the meeting about?

There continues to be great interest in developments in Central and Eastern Europe – for example:

How easy is it to get good samples for telephone interviewing or on line?

Are the great changes in the retail sector continuing – especially the rise of supermarkets?

How is the research industry organised – especially in the Czech Republic and Slovakia?

What are the regional differences when we consider all of Eastern Europe including Russia?

There will also be another Open Council Meeting where members are welcome to express their views.


The central part of the city has been preserved largely unchanged over several centuries. It has a wonderful skyline and is full of Baroque masterpieces. Especially notable are the Prague Castle (Prazsky hrad) –a complex of buildings going back to the 9th century – and the Charles Bridge (Karluv most) – dating from 1402. The city is associated with Mozart and Beethoven and has a great musical tradition (with three opera houses). Why not extend your stay to allow time at the weekend to enjoy the city?


The Jalta is a comfortable 5 star hotel very well situated on Wenceslas Square and with excellent conference facilities and comfortable bedrooms. For those staying at this hotel we will make the reservations but members will pay the hotel direct (see booking form). The hotel asks for a credit card reference as a guarantee in case of late cancellation. We have negotiated very advantageous room rates. There will be a gala dinner on Friday night at a local restaurant.

What is included

We are keeping the fee per delegate to a minimum £215 (€270); this includes registration, attendance at all the sessions, lunch (with wine), tea/coffee breaks and the gala dinner. There will be no charge for accompanying persons but they may not attend the formal sessions: there will however be an extra charge for the gala dinner guests.

The Gala Dinner is included in the full delegate fee. This will cover aperitifs at the restaurant and a gourmet meal with wine. There will be a cost of £75 (€90) per person for guests.

For non members there is a slightly higher fee. In the case of new members who attend the meeting and join within 2 months we will waive the joining fee and refund the difference between the member and non-member meeting fees.
