Getting Started

Vienna-Convention-Center.jpgMeeting Destination Vienna Logo


The official entrance for attendees is Foyer A at Messeplatz 1, 1020 Vienna. The closest subway station is U2 Messe/Prater. Closest car parking is the Public Car Park A.


This is a cautionary tale about timezones. Several attendees have noticed that the times shown on the virtual website appeared incorrect. The problem was that they chose a timezone that did not adjust for daylight savings time. We highly recommend picking a timezone based on a nearby city, especially if your area observes daylight savings time. Timezones are political and complex and thus confusing. Please check your timezone, and preferably choose a zone based on a city. Note that we are currently in Daylight Savings Time rather than Standard time in most, but not all of the US and Europe. 

If you're attending in-person, please set your timezone to "Europe/Vienna" using the link below.

Your current timezone:  (Change). (Note: the paper browser uses your system timezone).


We encourage everyone to view the sponsors just like you would at the physical conference

Live Captioning

We will be using automatic live captioning during the talks to help improve accessibility. We recognize that live captioning is beneficial not only for those who are hard of hearing but also for those for whom English is not their native language. That said, we also recognize that these systems are not perfect, and errors occur more often not only for technical terms but also for those whose accents and intonations do not fit the training data.  If you share specific bugs with the D&I Chairs we will share with our provider. We're also always open to constructive feedback on how we can make presentations more accessible and inclusive.
