The Welcome Reception will take place on Sunday, September 21, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Berchtold Saal of Seminarhotel Strudlhof (entry via Strudlhofgasse 10, close to the conference site) where a registration desk will be prepared. 


Heurigen Evening: Invitation by the Lord Mayor of City of Vienna

The conference dinner will be held as a Heurigen Evening (Wine of the Year) on September 25, 2014, at 18:30 at the Heurigen (Winery) 10er Marie (Ottakringer Straße 222, 1160 Vienna) by invitation of the Mayor of Vienna City.

Heuriger is the name given to Eastern-Austrian wine-taverns in which wine-growers serve the most recent year's wines and where the guests can experience Gemütlichkeit. These taverns need a special licence. Heurig means this year's (as an adjective) in Austrian German; thus, a Heuriger.

To access the site,  a historic tramway will leave at 17:30 from the tramway station Bauernfeldplatz close to the conference site. After a guided tour around the famous Ringstrasse it will arrive at the Heurigen Restaurant at about 18:30.
