The meeting venue will be at our institute building in Währinger Straße 17. From there paper signs should lead you the way to the meeting room. The general data for this location can be found below in the contact section. For easy orientation you can find the accommodation and venue marked on the google map here (for travel arrangements and contact information scroll down):
If you come by train:
Depending from where you come you will probably either arrive at Wien Westbahnhof or Wien Hauptbahnhof. In both cases we would suggest you take the metro lines (U3 from Westbahnhof to Volkstheater where you change to U2; or U1 from Hauptbahnhof to Karlsplatz where you change to U2). When you change to the U2 head for direction Aspernstraße and go until U2 station Schottentor, where the main building of University of Vienna is located. From there you can either take a 10 minutes walk down the Währinger Straße until you reach number 17, or you go just one station with one of the tramways 38, 39, 40, 41 or 42.
If you come by plane:
From the airport Wien-Schwechat there are several possibilities to get into the city. Our suggestion is to take the S-Bahn S7 in direction "Floridsdorf" until Praterstern. From there you can take the U2 until Schottentor, where the main building of University of Vienna is located. From there you can either take a 10 minutes walk down the Währinger Straße until you reach number 17, or you go just one station with one of the tramways 38, 39, 40, 41 or 42.
For all that you only need a 2-zone-ticket which costs 4,20 EUR. You can get the ticket at the ticket machines at the airport.
Other options would include the CAT (City Airport Train) or the Vienna Airport Lines (Bus). Both are more expensive and also more complicated to use in order to get here. So don't just stumble into the CAT only because all the ads at the airport suggest to do so ;) First you can follow the CAT signs, but then look out for the ticket machines of the ÖBB (that is the Austrian Railways, which provides the S7 line).
And of course there is taxi, but keep in mind that COST won't even think about reimbursing taxi tickets.
If you come by car:
Think twice! Especially because there are no free parking lots around the venue. If you nevertheless want to go by car, rethink again. If you still insist, try to think as many times as it needs to come to the conclusion that this is not a good idea. Or at least don't tell us afterwards we wouldn't have warned you. Of course if for some reason it is possible only to come by car for you, please let us know before. Perhaps we might assist in finding a good solution then.
To describe all possibilities how you could get here by car would probably be a bit confusing. Maybe just use the google maps (venue already marked) to find the route. With a bit of cruising around it is possible to find parking spaces around our institute. You have to keep in mind that from Monday through Friday between 9am and 10pm you have to pay parking fees. Tickets for that can be purchased at tobacco stores or gas stations. There is also a possibility to buy tickets online or by short message. Another possibility is to park the car in one of the outer districts and then go into the inner districts by public transport. All relevant infos regarding parking are provided on the city website: Parking in Vienna.
