The conference will take place in the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Its main building was erected in 1753-55 and hosted the University of Vienna (founded in 1365) until 1857. In 1857 it became the seat of the Imperial Academy of Sciences, which had been founded ten years before.
Our lectures will be given in the former theatre hall marked YELLOW on the map below. Locations of other symposium events are marked PINK and our hotel recommondations are marked BLUE. For more information about the venue you can download a folder (PDF) created by the Academy.
The Mercator-500 website cannot give a complete list of all places, museums, theatres, churches, or monuments that can be visited in Vienna, there are more adequate sites for this, see e.g. http://www.wien.info/en. However, here is a gallery of a few targets you may visit on your own. Note that our conference schedule is very dense, so you may want to come earlier or stay longer. (Images: P. Svatek)
