Why do I need to register for 'free of charge' events?

For organizational reasons the registration for 'free of charge' events, such as the Natural History Museum Backstage Tour, is neccessary and therefore mandatory.


I will complete my PhD after the registration deadline, but maybe before the congress starts.

Please register as a student. The deadline is your registration date.

Talks and poster

Talks will be 12+3 min. You can only register one talk or one poster.

Posters are portrait format in A0 size (119 cm x  84 cm).

Water quality

The Viennese population is supplied with spring water from the Northern Calcareous Alps. The “Alpine” tap water is very high quality, low in nitrogen, has no measurable pesticide residues and tastes as good as any mineral water. So, you need have few worries at all about drinking or using the tap water.

You will get a glass bottle in your conference bag and thus the possibility to always supply yourself with water during the conference.
