The Institute Colloquium is the principal research seminar at IST Austria. Scientists from around the world and from across all disciplines of the natural sciences are invited to present their latest findings. The Institute Colloquium has an interdisciplinary flavor and is meant to be of general interest to the research community of IST Austria as well as that of Vienna and surroundings.

The Institute Colloquium takes place on Mondays at 4:30 pm in the Raiffeisen Lecture Hall of the central building.

If you want to use the free IST shuttle bus from Wien Heiligenstadt to IST Austria, please print out the invitation for the Institute Colloquium and present it to the driver.
