Arrival and Departure
July 18th is the designated arrival day for all congress participants. Board members are requested to arrive on the 17th if possible, as a board meeting is planned for the 18th. Designated departure day is the 24th.
Every effort will be made to pick up congress participants from their point of arrival in Graz, either the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) or the airport (Flughafen Thalerhof, Graz International Airport GRZ), on the 18th (board members on the 17th). Also, shuttle service will be available to the airport and train station on the 24th. Participants arriving by car can drive directly to the venue in Semriach, where parking is easily available. There is also a public bus service (route 140 from Graz), terminating at Trattnerhof four times a day. The stop is called “Sonnenhof”. The bus schedule is available here.
If you are planning to arrive on a day other than the 18th/17th and require help in getting to the venue, please inform me of this as well and I will do my best to arrange transportation.
After you have registered through the website, please send me your travel details (arrival and departure times and dates; means of arrival), along with preferences for single or shared accommodation (including names of preferred room-mates, if any) for the duration of the congress. (Recall that 6 nights’ accommodation including all meals and refreshments will cost €468 in double accommodation and €516 in a single room. Room fees will be paid directly to the hotel on arrival by cash, debit card or credit card.) Please send this information to me at
See you in July!
