Accommodation

Vienna Opera     We are not coordinating lodging, but here are some suggestions:

Traveling

By plane: Vienna has an international airport (IATA-Code: VIE) with daily connections to many major destinations in the world. There are several connections from the airport to the city centre: either the CAT line (16 minutes non-stop, 12 € for one-way, 21 € for a two-way ticket), or the S7 line (25 minutes, 4,20 € for a one-way ticket including the public transport system in Vienna), or the usual railway to Hauptbahnhof (16 minutes non-stop (4,20 € for a one-way ticket including the public transport system in Vienna). CAT and S7 go daily every 30 minutes to Wien Mitte, which is located in the heart of Vienna. Taxis are quite expensive, however, there are companies with flat rates that you can prebook (for example 34 € with http://www.airportdriver.at/en).     Muehlviertel

Karlskirche     By train: Please note that there are two different railway companies in Austria: ÖBB and Westbahn. ÖBB tickets have to be purchased in advance (either online or at the ticket vending machine / counter at the train station), while Westbahn tickets are sold on the train. Tickets from one company are not valid for trains of the other company. Vienna has several train stations, most importantly the "Hauptbahnhof" (main train station, ÖBB) and the "Westbahnhof" (all Westbahn trains stop here).

Local transportation: The conference venue, TU Wien, is located near Karlsplatz, which is also the name of the closest subway station. From Hauptbahnhof you reach the TU Wien via the subway line U1 (2 stops, direction Leopoldau). From Wien Mitte, you can reach the University via the subway line U4 (2 stops, direction Hütteldorf). For other connections, see the network plan of Wiener Linien.     Stephansdom

Hofburg     Visa: Austria is part of the Schengen area, which means that citizens from countries outside the European union may need a visa for entering Austria. Here you can find out whether this applies to you, and how the visa application procedure works. In case you need an invitation letter for this (or for your academic institution who may request such a letter for funding applications), please contact our staff.
