The Workshop will take place on the first floor (above ground) of the building of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague, which is situated in the historical centre of Prague–in the quarter called Malá Strana, at the foot of the Prague Castle and near the medieval Charles Bridge.

The building formerly served as the House for Professed of the Jesuite Order—more information can be found on the Faculty website. A Romanesque rotunda of St. Wenceslas was discovered in 2004 on the premises of the building.
