Meeting Registration with Organizers

Delegates should register with the organizers (ITEC) online at http://mpeg-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/ ("Registration Form") as soon as possible. Payment should be made online; see below.

The registration and hospitality desk on site will be open as follows:

- Sat - Sun, July 20 - 21: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM

- Mon - Fri, July 22 - 26: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Facilities Fee

The facilities fee for the meeting is EUR 340 (approx. USD 300). The fee is preferably paid online at registration time by credit card (Visa, MasterCard); alternatively, the fee can be paid on site by credit card or in cash.

Geographical Location

Klagenfurt is the capital of Carinthia, the southernmost federal state of Austria in Central Europe. Klagenfurt is situated at beautiful Lake Wörthersee and currently has approx. 90.000 inhabitants. Being a small city, with a Renaissance-style city center reflecting 800 years of history and with Italian influence, Klagenfurt is a pleasant place to live and work. Most importantly for delegates, it is a very safe place.

The MPEG meeting will take place at the University Klagenfurt, which is located only about 1.5 kilometers east of Lake Wörthersee and about 3 kilometers west of the city center.

Maps and pictures can be found on the meeting Website: http://mpeg-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/ ("Geographical Information" and "Hotel Booking").

Transportation

Klagenfurt has a small airport (KLU), with several daily flights from/to:

Detailed flight schedules are available via the meeting Website: http://mpeg-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/ ("Hotel Booking" --> "Flight Information"). Since July is high tourist season in Carinthia, it is advisable to book flights early.

Several car rentals are available at the airport.

Klagenfurt can also conveniently be reached by car via Austrian highway A2 from Vienna (approx. 3.5 hours) and Graz (approx. 1.5 hours), via highways A10 and A2 from Munich (approx. 3.5 hours) and Salzburg (approx. 2 hours), and from Venice (approx. 3 hours).

Several trains a day run to/from Vienna, Salzburg, Germany (Munich, Dortmund), Italy (Venice), and Switzerland (Zurich).

Accommodation

Delegates need to book rooms in several hotels in the area, since a conference hotel hosting such a large number of delegates is not available in the region. Hotel information and online booking is being handled by a travel agency, "Kärnten Incoming Verkauf". For the MPEG meeting, we have booked over 300 rooms in different price categories in hotels near the University Klagenfurt. A bus shuttle service will be available between the hotels and the university campus; see below.

Delegates are requested to book hotels online at http://mpeg-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/ ("Hotel Booking"). The hotel information available there includes a sequence of maps (--> "Area/City Maps and Info") showing the three areas ("resorts") where the hotels are situated:

Detailed information on room prices and hotel facilities/services are available in the lists of hotels that result from searching the "resort" areas on the Website (--> "Congress Hotels"). As usual in Austria (as in most countries in Central Europe), the hotel room prices do include breakfast.

Delegates are advised to book early, enabling them to choose the preferred area and price.

Bus Shuttle Service / Bike Rental

A bus shuttle service will be available during the MPEG meeting week (July 22-26). Separate buses will pick up the delegates from the hotels in the Lake Wörthersee area and in the Klagenfurt city area. The shuttle service is free of charge.

In the morning, the buses are scheduled to arrive at the University Klagenfurt at 9:00 AM. In the evening, it is planned to have buses depart to the hotels at several (hopefully, convenient) points in time.

For delegates not able to catch a bus in the evening, taxis will be available at short notice.

It may be convenient for some delegates to rent a bicycle - distances between hotels and the university are moderate, the area is predominantly flat, and cycling is generally safe, particularly on one of the many bike paths available. Bike rental will be available at the university and may also be provided by hotels.

Meals

Lunch will be provided on campus during the MPEG meeting week. There will be a choice between regular Austrian and vegetarian cuisine. A number of restaurants is within walking distance of the university.

Visas and Passports

Citizens of EU countries, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand do not require visas. Citizens of most other industrialised countries may enter Austria for up to 90 days without a visa as well. Some foreign visitors may require an official invitation and a financial guarantee from an Austrian host, thus obtaining a visa may be rather time consuming.

Austria is a signatory of the Schengen Accords; hence, passports are theoretically not required by EU citizens, although it is advisable to have a passport for identification purposes. Passports are required by all other citizens.

Currency and Credit Cards

Since March 1, 2002, the Austrian currency is the Euro (EUR - €).

There are bank notes with denominations of EUR 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, and 500.

Coins are available at a face value of EUR 1 and 2, as well as 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Cents.

Austrian Schillings are no longer accepted.

National and foreign currencies can be imported and exported in sufficient amounts.

Credit cards are accepted in cities and tourist areas by many hotels, restaurants, shops, and gas stations.

Business Hours

Banking hours are Mon - Fri: 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM (Thu: 5:30 PM). Banks are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. The exchange counters at airports and main railway stations are usually open from the first to the last plane or train, i.e., from 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM seven days a week.

Private businesses and government offices are usually open Mon - Fri: 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM and 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM (or 6:00 PM). Many offices are already closed on Friday afternoon.

Shops and stores are open Mon - Fri: 8:00 AM (or 9:00 AM) - 6:00 PM (or 7:30 PM); Sat: 8:00 AM (or 9:00 AM) - 12:00 (or 5:00 PM). They are closed on Sundays. Some shops also closed for a one- or two-hour lunch break.

Tourist attractions are open seven days a week.

Electricity

Power supply is 230 V AC, 50 Hz, with round two-pin plugs. US delegates, among others, need plug adapters and converters for 110/120 V appliances.

Internet Access

The organizers will provide wired (10/100 Mbps Ethernet) as well as wireless (IEEE 802.11) network access at the university, with a high-speed backbone connection to ACONet (Austrian Academic Computer Network) and to the Internet.

Hotels may or may not offer Internet access via regular telephone or ISDN lines; in rare cases, ADSL. Delegates are advised to check with the hotels about the availability of Internet access and telephone adapter plugs.

Climate Information / Weather

Austria is located in a temperate climatic zone with a Central European climate influenced primarily by the Atlantic. However, Carinthia, being located south of the Alps, is in general influenced by Mediterranean climate.

The Klagenfurt weather therefore often depends on the weather of Northern Italy. Summers in Klagenfurt will sometimes be hot (max. temperature can be 30-35° C), but may also be rainy.

A chart with avg. sun hours per day, min. and max. temperature, days of rainfall in Klagenfurt is available on the Website: http://mpeg-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/.

Sightseeing / Vacation

Carinthia (Kärnten) is the lively south of Austria. Hospitality here has always been a guiding principle. Between Austria’s highest mountain, the Großglockner (3.798 m) in the north, and Lake Wörthersee in the south, there are plenty of opportunities for being active, relaxing, and sightseeing. Carinthia offers a unique blend of 200 lakes for bathing and of mountains, providing ideal conditions for water and/or mountain sports enthusiasts and cyclists. Families are particularly welcome in Carinthian tourist areas and hotels. Please visit: http://www.kaernten.at/.

Southern flair, a Renaissance-style historical town with beautifully renovated fronts and lovely courtyards with bars and restaurants, a wide range of cultural and sports events and entertainment can be enjoyed in Klagenfurt. Picturesque castles and medieval churches can be found near the city; "Minimundus", a park with 170 models (1:25 scale) of the world’s most beautiful buildings on display, located very close to the university, is not only attractive for children. Please visit: http://www.klagenfurt.at/.

Visitors can conveniently drive (or go by train) to world-renowned cities like Vienna, Salzburg and Venice within 2 - 3.5 hours time. The Mediterranean Sea is just approx. a 2 hours drive south of Klagenfurt. The Slovenian capital Ljubljana is even closer.
