Conference Venues

The conference will take place in two venues:

1.  From 24 to 25 October at the Hofburg Redoutensäle, Josefsplatz, 1010 Vienna. (see Hofburg Location map). The closest underground stations are: Herrengasse (U3). Karlsplatz (U1, U2, U4) and Stephansplatz (U1, U3).

Please send the final version of your presentation by 22 October to Pat Wagner (wagner@iiasa.ac.at) and/or Alexandra Mally (mally@iiasa.ac.at). This will give us enough time to make sure that it is compatible with the IT system at the Hofburg and Laxenburg—this is especially important if you are using video or audio files. If you update your presentation after sending it to us; please give it, on a USB stick, to the IIASA conference staff member in the conference office during the break before you speak. Maps in your Conference Information Booklet (which you will receive upon registering) will show the location of the conference offices. IIASA conference staff can be identified by their orange badge.

Poster Presenters

Set up time to display your poster is on Tuesday, 23 October, from 14:00 to 19:00 at the Hofburg. After registering, please proceed to the poster desk, where you will be allocated a number and provided with fixing material to display your poster on the appropriately numbered poster board. Poster presenters are requested to stand next to their posters every lunch break after having had a quick lunch. To ensure posters are displayed at both venues, the organizers ask poster presenters to take down their posters after 16:00 on Thursday, 25 October, and bring it to Laxenburg on the third day by 10:00. If poster presenters are not attending the third day please take down the poster and leave it at the poster desk in the Hofburg on Thursday evening. Here too, the same allocated number applies and fixing material will be available to display the poster at the Laxenburg venue.


A cloakroom will be provided at the Hofburg and Laxenburg for delegates' coats/luggage. Please be aware that items cannot be left overnight, as the facility will not be staffed at this time and will therefore not be secure.

The cloakroom will be open from 08:00 to 18:00.
