Klagenfurt is the capital of Carinthia, the southernmost federal state of Austria, Europe. Klagenfurt is situated at beautiful Lake W・thersee 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.

The Klagenfurt University is located only about 1.5 kilometers east of Lake W・thersee and about 3 kilometers west of the city center.

Meeting facilities

For the MPEG/JVT/SC 29 meetings most of the lecture rooms are available including the main auditorium with approximately 600 seats. Furthermore, 4 lecture rooms with 200 seats, 2 lecture rooms with 90 seats and several smaller rooms with 20 - 50 seats are available.

The meeting rooms are equipped with a multimedia projector, sound and microphone equipment (large ones), flipcharts, blackboards, wireless Internet access (wired Internet access will be provided to a certain extent), and power plugs.

Other equipment include computer room(s) with printing facilities and wireless/wired Internet access throughout the Klagenfurt University.

Registration and hospitality desk

The registration has to be made online via http://mpeg77.itec.uni-klu.ac.at/ (MPEG username/password required). The registration includes access to meeting rooms, free Internet access, and social event. Furthermore, coffee breaks (twice a day) and lunch during the MPEG meeting (Mon-Fri) are included also.

Facilities fee:

Additional tickets for social event: € 50.00 for one and € 100.00 for two or more accompanying persons.

The shuttle service is free of charge and a detailed schedule will be posted on the meeting Web site.

Travel information

Klagenfurt is the capital of Carinthia, the southernmost federal state of Austria in Central Europe as depicted below.

Travel by car:

There are two main motorways in Austria leading to Klagenfurt, namely the A2 (SAautobahn) and the A10 (Tauernautobahn).

For the Klagenfurt University leave the A2 motorway at "Klagenfurt West" exit "Minimundus/Klagenfurt W・thersee", straight ahead to the "W・thersee SAuferstra煥", and after approximately 200 meters turn left to the university. There are a sufficient number of parking lots around the university area (free of charge).

During summer vacation time an increased volume of traffic is to be expected, resulting in traffic jams with possible delays up to several hours, especially on weekends between Salzburg and Villach on the A10!

NOTE: Motorways are toll roads and vehicles require a so-called “Vignette” which is available at motoring organizations like 崛MTC (http://www.oeamtc.at/), ARB屓(http://www.arboe.or.at/), gas stations (AE)(also at the border in neighboring countries), etc.

Travel by train:

Arrival at train station "Hauptbahnhof Klagenfurt". Further details can be found at "崑B – 幇terreichische Bundesbahn" (http://www.oebb.at/) and connection queries at http://fahrplan.oebb.at. Alternatively you may contact "DB – Deutsche Bahn" (http://www.bahn.de/pv/view/index.shtml) with connection queries at http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de.

To get to the university from the train station refer to public transport in Klagenfurt (http://www.mapexplorer.com/stw/index.htm) or take a taxi.

Travel by airplane:

The most convenient way to get to Klagenfurt is by airplane. Regular flights between Vienna/Frankfurt and Klagenfurt are offered 2 - 3 times a day by Austrian Airlines (AUA), a Star Alliance partner. In addition low cost flights are provided by HLX from Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover, and K・n/Bonn.

Please visit http://www.klagenfurt-airport.com/ for further details.

Getting from/to the airport/train station by taxi:

Taxi stands are located in front of the arrival/departure halls of the airport as well as next to the train station. Taxis may also be ordered and pre-booked under the following telephone numbers:

 

The fare from the airport to the university is approximately € 15.00 and from the main train station to the university is approximately € 11.00.

Visa information:

In order to obtain a visa to attend the event, the organizing committee will be glad to assist you with an official invitation letter, provided we receive your request (including full name, passport number) no later than June 30, 2006. Please tick the symbol "Invitation letter needed" in the online registration form.

Further information

Bike rental:

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 (location “Uni-Wirt”) 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. A guide to restaurants in Klagenfurt will be provided with the “welcome package”.

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. National and foreign currencies may be imported and exported in sufficient amounts. Credit cards are accepted in cities and tourist areas by many hotels, restaurants, shops, and gas stations.

Banking hours are Mon - Thu: 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, Fri: 8.00 AM – 3.30 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.

Electricity:

Electricity supply is 230V AC, 50Hz. Electrical outlet: plugs have only 2 pins – e.g. US participants need plug adapters and converters for 110/120 Volt appliances.

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.

Sightseeing / vacation

Carinthia (K糅nten) is the lively south of Austria. Hospitality here has always been a guiding principle. Between Austria’s highest mountain, the Gro熈lockner (3.798 m) in the north, and Lake W・thersee 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.

Southern flair, a Renaissance-style historical town with beautifully renovated houses 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.

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.
