Accompanying Program

Get Together on Saturday Night
Motel One Vienna-Prater

The outdoor lounge with its water fountain at this reasonably priced design hotel invites to an enjoyable informal conclusion of the Pre-Conference. Of course, participants of the Conference, having already arrived in Vienna a day ahead, are very welcome to join!
A refreshing PCE2018-drink and a small menu (at affordable prices) will be on offer for participants of the Conference exclusively.
Meeting at the bar and lounge of Motel One should provide the opportunity of talking with colleagues in a private atmosphere, beyond the schedule of the Conference.
Motel One Wien-Prater is situated directly adjacent to our Conference site.
It is one of our selected hotels with a block of rooms for PCE 2018.


Gala Dinner at the Vienna City Hall

On Tuesday, July 10, 2018, ALL participants are cordially invited to a gala dinner at 7:30 p.m. at the Vienna City Hall! The attendance of this event is included in the Conference fee! The city hall, built in neo-Gothic style is one of the so-called famous “Ringstraßengebäude“ (buildings lining the Vienna ring road). The mayor of the city of Vienna invites to the large ceremonial hall of the city hall – there we will have a particularly exceptional setting for our festive gala dinner. After the final parallel sessions of this day and the beginning of the gala dinner sufficient time should allow to change clothes and prepare for the evening, if you wish.
You can reach city hall conveniently via direct underground connection from SFU (line U2, 8 minutes). We are looking forward to being together enjoying food and drinks and music! Planning requires knowing the exact number of participants – therefore we kindly request a binding registration for the gala dinner during your Conference registration process. Of course, you may bring your partner to the gala dinner – the fee for an accompanying person is EUR 80.00. We kindly ask for the respective booking during your registration process.

Social Getaway

After the closing ceremony on the last day of the Conference, on Thursday, July 12, 2017, we can all meet at 1 p.m. for the “Social Getaway” – to close the Conference we are looking forward to an informal and relaxing get together, of course with your partner!
We will meet at the SFU and go with tramways/streetcars, especially reserved for us, to a traditional Viennese “Heuriger” (typical wine tavern). On our way to the Heuriger we will see the old town of Vienna, going along the famous street „Ringstrasse“. After our arrival at the Heuriger we will enjoy a late lunch with typical Viennese food and wine („Heuriger“ literally means: this year’s wine). The contribution for this tour is EUR 45.00. If you want to join, please book the Social Getaway!
