-- FROM THE AIRPORT TO VIENNA --
The most direct way from the airport to the institute and the hotels in Klosterneuburg is:
- Take the S7 train directly from the Vienna Airport to Landstrasse-Wien Mitte station. (The CAT train is also an option, but an extra ticket is required)
- Tickets for trains and busses can be obtained in ticket machines or in the OBB app or website
- Take U4 subway towards Heiligenstadt until the last stop (Heiligenstadt). During the week you will need to change trains due to a construction site (this is indicated on site).
- On the weekend, take the Bus 400-“Maria Gugging Lourdesgrotte” or a taxi from Heiligenstadt to the center of Klosterneuburg or to ISTA. Shuttle services are only available during the week.
-- HOW TO ARRIVE AT ISTA --
To facilitate convenient transportation for our participants, we have arranged shuttle bus services from designated pickup points. The shuttle buses will operate according to the schedule. We kindly as you to arrive at the pickup location at least 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Moreover, please note that you can take the regular ISTA Shuttle Bus (number 142) from Vienna/Heiligenstadt or Klosterneuburg center (Stadtplatz) to ISTA. Lastly, you can also use the public transport services. The VOR website for the public transport: https://anachb.vor.at/. If the tickets are bought directly at the bus, only cash is accepted.
-- REGISTRATION AND CHECK-IN --
Upon arrival, please proceed to the registration desks to check in and collect your conference badge. The registration desks are located at the entrance of the Raiffeisen Lecture Hall. We kindly request that you wear your conference badge at all times during the event.
-- MEALS & NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES --
We encourage you to take advantage of the networking opportunities available during the conference. Engage with fellow attendees and speakers during the coffee breaks, lunches, poster sessions, and evening receptions.
The coffee breaks will be held directly outside the Raiffeisen Hall as well as outdoors. Lunch will be provided at the campus cafeteria. Each participant will receive 5 vouchers for all the days that need to be handed in at check-out.
The Gala dinner is at Redlinger Hütte. The restaurant is on the hills close to ISTA Campus, and the plan is to reach it on foot. There is a 20-minute walk from the conference venue. If anyone needs special assistance, please contact email@example.com, or let us know at the registration desk.
Friday evening, we organized a wine-tasting session with delicious food in a traditional Heuriger in the mountains. To reach the Heuiriger, we planned a hiking excursion of around 2 h. Please bring comfortable shoes on the way there. On the way back, we will provide shuttle buses. If anyone needs special assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or let us know at the registration desk.
-- QUIET ROOMS --
We expect NaNaX to be bustling and dynamic, filled with stimulating talks and discussions, networking opportunities, and social events. However, we also recognize that some attendees may need moments of solitude and focus to catch up on work, respond to urgent emails, or simply have a quiet space for reflection. We are pleased to inform you that we will provide quiet rooms during the conference for individuals requiring a dedicated space to work or concentrate. The quiet rooms we have designated are called MONDI 1, 2 and 3 and are a few steps away from the lecture hall. You can check the exact location on the webpage.
-- PRESENTATION GUIDELINES --
For those scheduled to present, please make sure to be at the lecture hall at least 10 min before the session starts. We recommend bringing your presentation on a USB for faster exchange between talks.
Invited talks duration is 30 min plus 5 Q&A, and contributed talks duration is 12 min plus 3 Q&A.
Our conference schedule is tightly packed to accommodate a diverse range of topics and speakers. To ensure a smooth and productive event for all participants, we kindly request that you adhere strictly to the established time slot allocated for your presentation.
Respecting the time limit will not only benefit the overall schedule but also provide all presenters an equal opportunity to share their valuable research and insights. To help you manage your time, we provide a digital clock that will inform you during your presentation about your remaining time and beep at the end.
-- POSTER SESSIONS --
If you present a poster, please remember to print your poster before traveling to the conference. Bring your posters in portrait format DIN A0 (84.1×118.9 cm or 33.1×46.8 inches). Upon arrival at the conference venue, you will find a map displaying the respective locations and numbers assigned for poster presentations.
The poster session will be outdoors, on the terrace (if the weather allows it). Poster presenters will find on their badges a number that indicates where they should hang their posters. Please do so 10 minutes before the poster session starts. The posters must be removed after the sessions.
During the poster sessions, food and drinks will be provided.
Thanks to our sponsors, several poster awards will be given to recognize outstanding contributions. The judges for the poster awards will be our invited speakers and the organizers. Among all the poster awardees, we will select one to be presented as an oral contribution. The Poster Awardee talk will be Friday at 12:25. All the awards will be given during the gala dinner Thursday night.
-- NETWORKING AND SOCIAL EVENTS --
Please note that, around all the events in the conference, there will be a team of people ready to help you in case of questions/problems. To identify them, please look for those wearing green vests.
