We recommend the Sommerhaus Hotel (Julius-Raab-Heim) in Linz for the participants of CAI2011. The address is

Hotel Sommerhaus
Julius-Raab-Straße 10
A-4040 Linz

To reach the hotel from the train station we recommend taking the tram. You have the use either line 1 or line 2, both in the direction “Universität”. During daytime the tram goes almost every five minutes. With line 1 or 2 you go to the final stop, also called “Universität”. A MIDI ticket is needed for this distance, which can be obtained from automata at the tram stops. (If you plan to go to the city centre in the evening, then a MAXI (daily) ticket is advisible.)

From the tram stop “Universität” you have to walk east along the Aubrunner Weg. The big building towards which you walk right after the turn is the Sommerhaus Hotel. You can reach it from the Aubrunner Weg via a small path. See also the map below.

To reach the hotel from Linz airport we recommend taking a bus to the train station. A bus schedule is available on the airport web site. At the train station proceed as above.

Conference site

The conference takes place on the JKU campus. To reach it from the Sommerhaus Hotel you have to go back the way to the tram station “Universität”. From there, you walk north along Altenberger Straße. The university campus is just to the left after approx. 50m.
