Prague College first speaker at Master Speaker Series will be Zdenek Mikovec

Prague College, one of the Czech Republic’s leading English language universities, is delighted to announce that Zdenek Mikovec, an Associate Professor at the Czech Technical University in Prague (CVUT) will be the first of this semester’s Master Speakers.

The event, which takes place in Prague College’s Blanicka conference room, is part of the College’s ongoing and very successful Master Speaker series, which has seen several well-known personalities from both the Czech and international business, art and educational fields visiting the college to speak to students as well as the general public.

Zdenek Mikovec is well-known for his expertise in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI), where he studies human interaction with technology in special environments. His research interests are the navigation of people with limited orientation, multi-modal user interfaces (gestures, voice, haptics), mobile user interfaces, and accessibility of information and communication technologies (ICT).

Talking about the event, Douglas Hajek, Director and Founder of Prague College said:“Through our regular Master Speaker Series of talks we have been able to host some truly memorable speakers from a range of different fields; people such as Darren Huston, CEO of Booking.com, Leon Jakimic, the President of Lasvit, and Vladimir Dlouhy, the ex-Minister of Trade and Industry and now Chairman of the Czech Chamber of Commerce have all taken part and given wonderful and empowering talks. We have no doubt that our next speaker, Professor Mikovec, will be fascinating and, particularly for our students in IT and Computer, enormously educational.

The ‘Master Speaker’ series of events is open to both students and the general public, and entrance is free. To find out more about this and other events, go to www.praguecollege.cz.
