Travel, Accomodation and Local Information

Here we will provide information about travelling to Vienna and to the conference venue, and tips on what can be seen and done in Vienna. Information on accomodation is provided during registration.

Coming to Vienna

Vienna's Airport (VIE) is located southeast of the city and is served by all major airlines. All relevant information can be found on their webpage.

For train connections, consult the timetable of the federal railway company (ÖBB). There are direct services to many central european cities.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held in a building of the Vienna University of Technology. The street address is Wiedner Hauptstrasse 8-10 in the fourth district. The building has colored sections - you enter in the red section and should move to the green section on the ground floor. KI-2001 will be held on the second floor (European counting, that's third floor for American counting). The main event will be held in the green section in rooms FH HS 6 and FH HS 5. Some Workshops on Tuesday will be held in the yellow section (W1 "PuK 2001" in room Nöbauer HS, W2 "MASHO" in room FH HS 4, W8 "Ontologies" in room FH HS 7). Workshop W3 "Where will autonomous robots go to?" will be held in room Sem 114 in the green section on the third floor (European counting). Rooms for Internet access are located in the yellow section on the second floor (FHBR2 and FHBR3). Registration and coffee breaks will be in the green section on the second floor.

We have compiled a list of restaurants, cafes and other places where you can get food near the conference venue.

The conference venue is located close to the underground station "Karlsplatz", served by lines U1, U2, and U4. From there, you should take the exit "Wiedner Hauptstrasse". Once you have reached the surface, just walk straight on towards a building with a giant owl (this is the university library), pass underneath the owl, and enter the next building on your right (the light-green building, see these pictures, all of which have been taken from the opposite side of the street).

It is also easy to reach the conference venue by taking trams 62, 65 or the "Wiener Lokalbahn" (beige and blue) outbound from opposite the opera. The first stop is directly in front of the building.

You can also take trams 62, 65, the "Wiener Lokalbahn" (all inbound) or bus 4A to stop "Karlsplatz". From there, you should cross Wiedner Hauptrasse (the street where the trams came from) and then follow the directions from the underground exit "Wiedner Hauptstrasse".

There is yet another bus, 59A, stopping close to the conference venue. The stop is called "Bärenmühlendurchgang" - if you come with the inbound bus, you walk through a building directly to the right of the station (this is the "Bärenmühlendurchgang"!), cross a trafficlight and enter the building to your right.

Public transport is very efficient in Vienna, and there are also special priced tickets for tourists. VOR has a searchable timetable (you can search for a connection between stops, addresses, and even landmarks [the latter unfortunately only in German]). Be sure to enter "Wien" as Town, "Vienna" will give strange results.

Here are some maps:
