The Opening Ceremony and the Plenary Keynote Lecture 1 will take place in the Hofburg (see map, the arrow points to the appropriate entrance). Please ask at the hotel for the most convenient way to Hofburg.


The walk from the Hofburg to the Freihaus (for the afternoon sessions) takes approximately 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can take one of the tram-lines on Burgring/Opernring to the Vienna Opera House (Staatsoper) and then use the underground pedestrian passage to Wiedner Hauptstraße.
