Getting to / from IST Austria
The Institute of Science and Technology Austria is located in Maria Gugging, Klosterneuburg, 18 km outside of Vienna.
We will organize special conference buses going to IST Austria each day in the morning and returning after the talks/dinners.
Both the IST Shuttle (Bus 142) and the Bus 239 stop in front of the Institute (stop also at Klosterneuburg Stadtplatz - IST Austria) and travel to the subway stop Heiligenstadt on line U4 (see subway map). The trip takes about 25 minutes. IST Shuttle service runs once or twice an hour on weekdays, and Bus 239 runs approximately every 30 minutes (1.70 EUR payable on the bus) all week long. To get to the IST on Sunday, take bus 239 from Vienna Heiligenstadt. From Klosterneuburg, you can take Bus 239 or Bus 341.

Public transport in Vienna
The public transit system connects to the Federal Railways (local S-bahn and long distance trains) and to the Vienna Airport. The same single-fare ticket is valid for all means of transport in the city zone and permits changes. U4 stop Heiligenstadt is the last stop within the city zone (separate fare is needed for Bus 239). Other kinds of tickets (e.g. day tickets, useful for exploring Vienna) are also available from the ticket machines. U-bahn runs very frequently (3-5 minutes during daytime), from 5am until 20 minutes past midnight, but throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays and before public holidays.
It is possible to take a cab from IST to Heiligenstadt, Vienna downtown or the airport (best to have cash ready, ATM is in the institute lobby):
You can take a cab from the airport directly to IST, but be sure to have the full address of the Institute at hand (IST Austria, Am Campus 1, 3400 Maria Gugging-Klosterneuburg). If their GPS does not have this new address yet, try Hauptstrasse 2, 3400 Maria Gugging-Klosterneuburg.
