Welcome Mixer

All congress participants and their registered accompanying persons are cordially invited to the reception on Tuesday evening, September 5, 2017 at 7pm. This informal get-together will take place at the town-hall of Vienna (Rathausplatz 1, 1010 Vienna, entrance at Felderstrasse 1 – Feststiege I).

For your convenience we have organized an old-timer streetcar, which will depart from the Otto-Wagner-Pavillon, located a mere 5 minute walk from the conference venue (cf Campus Area Map, G-9, marker 3). The streetcar takes a direct but also very scenic route along the Viennese Ringstrasse to bring us within 20 minutes directly in front of the town-hall. Our “helping hands” will be available to indicate the way both to and from the streetcar.

As this is an open end event and we are quite close to the conference venue, please arrange traveling to your hotel on your own. In case of a comfortable weather we can recommend to have a short walk (20 min) along the so called “Ring” to “Karlsplatz” (please see map on page G-9). As an alternative, the metro U2 and the tramway station are also in walking distance (4 min). If you have any further questions, helping hands will be available during the whole event.

Main Conference Excursion

For Wednesday afternoon, a bus transfer will bring us to the Klosterneuburg Monastery where you have the possiability to join the Wine, Imperial, Sacral or Treasure Chamber Tour.

Conference Dinner

After the visit in Klosterneuburg, the busses will take you to the conference dinner in the village of Klein-Engersdorf. The dinner will be held at a Heurigen, which is a special rural restaurant, typical for the wine producing areas around Vienna. The buffet will offer you several traditional meals with wine from the region being served.

After dinner, the busses will bring us back to Karlsplatz. The first bus will leave at 10pm, and then on demand.

Small Afternoon Excursion

For Thursday afternoon, we have organized different tours to interesting sites in Vienna. All tours are within walking distance from the conference site, and you will be guided by one of our “helping hands”. In case of bad weather please don’t forget to bring your umbrella or rain coat.

The meeting point for these walks is between the conference venue and the university library. Please be there in time (15:05 latest) and take notice to which tour you have signed up for (cf Campus Area Map, G-9, marker 2).

The following tours will be offered:

Roof tour on the Natural History Museum
Highlights tour in the Natural History Museum
Kunstkammer in the Museum of Art History
Highlights tour in Schloss Belvedere
Love, death and passion in the Wien Museum

Roof Party

Besides the happening above we have a special Roof Party (weather dependent) on Thursday evening at about 9pm, after the poster session. Here we will serve delicious regional Most and Sturm, have a special craft beer area and give you the possibility for a special wine tasting session.
