Conference Location

Vienna, Austria

Few cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognised: grand imperial palaces and fantastic interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg – where the Habsburg rulers lived and ruled the empire. But this historical aspect often makes us forget that Vienna is also one of Europe's most dynamic urban spaces. Just a stone's throw from Hofburg, the MuseumsQuartier houses some of the world’s most provocative contemporary art behind a striking basalt façade. Outside, a courtyard buzzes on summer evenings with throngs of Viennese drinking and chatting.

It is a reminder that the city of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Strauss, Brahms, Mahler and Schönberg is also the Vienna of Falco, who immortalised its urban textures in song. It's also a place where modern fusion restaurants stand alongside the traditional Beisl, Gasthäuser and the famous Konditorei, where you can taste the world-famous Sacher Torte.
