Local Information


The workshop will take place at the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC), which is an institute of the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. RISC is located in the Castle of Hagenberg, a romantic, medieval castle amidst the lovely, hilly landscape of the Mühlviertel, 20 km north east of Linz, the provincial capital of Upper Austria, located halfway between Salzburg and Vienna.

More information about RISC can be found on the institute's web page and also on the folder.

Transnational Access Programme of the European project SCIEnce provides an interesting opportunity to obtain grants to visit RISC.

In July 22-24, Linz will host a spectacular event, the traditional festival of street art Pflasterspektakel.
