Q: Do i have to take a hotel provided on the website for my overnight stay?

Q: What size/format should my poster be?

Q: Is there a possibility for on-site printing?
A: There are a few copy-shops in the area, some of which also print DIN A0 posters. Prints usually take about 30-45 minutes if the printer is warm. Price about 29 €. This one for example http://www.diekopie.at/diekopie-09-uni-wien/
We would however advise that you don't wait to the very last day - you may not be the only one wanting to have a poster printed.
Q: I compiled my presentation on a mac - what machines will be in the lecture hall?
A: Windows machines. They have VLC-Player installed. There is a possibility to plug your own macbook into the system BUT you will have to make sure you have your adapter with you.
We would advise to put the presentations on a USB-Stick in a compatible format to give everyone the full experience of your presentation.
Q: When should we give you the presentations?
A: In the breaks before the sessions you should bring your USB stick to the podium and we will load the file to the desktop. This way there will be less delay between talks and one or the other check can be made before we kick off.
Q: I have preliminary data in my talk or poster presentation that I would prefer not to have spread via the internet/social media. What should i do?
A: In times of social media, information spreads very quickly. This is usually a good thing. You may however feel that it is too early for some of the data to go online. We can't prevent this from happening - but what we can do is provide an "icon" or sign to indicate to the viewer that you don't want your data to be shared openly. It can be downloaded here.
Q: How will I get from A to B in Vienna? Is public transport any good?
A: Public transport in Vienna is one of the best in the world. Tickets can be purchased in every tram or bus. For trains and tube the ticket machines are to be found at the stations. For participants we offer a special service - you can purchase tickets at the registration desk. This is a little cheaper than buying on the tram/bus.
