Conference Venue

The MATEDAS 2024 conference will take place in the picturesque town of Trenčín, which is rightly considered the pearl of Považie. The medieval castle, where the famous Matúš Čák Trenčansky ruled, rises majestically above the city. However, the history of the city dates back much earlier, to the times when the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius passed through the city, and he carved a famous inscription into the castle rock. Currently, the city of Trenčín is considered a center of education, industry and culture. You will therefore fall in love with the city of Trenčín at first sight and we believe that you will experience pleasant conference days in one of the oldest cities in Slovakia.
