We have compiled a list of restaurants, cafes and other places where you can get food near the conference venue.
The main conference venue is located close to the underground station "Karlsplatz", served by lines U1, U2, and U4. From there, you should take the exit "Resselpark". Once you have reached the surface, just walk through the park towards the main entrance of the old university building.
You can also take trams 62, 65, the "Wiener Lokalbahn" (inbound only) or bus 4A to stop "Karlsplatz". From there, just descend a staircase and then follow the directions from the underground exit "Resselpark".
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.
The system session on Monday evening will be held in the Heinz Zemanek Saal on the ground floor of the building at Favoritenstrasse 11. This map gives you an overviewwhere this is w.r.t. the KI-2001 and LPNMR'01 venue and some of the hotels. It is close to the undergroundstation "Taubstummengasse" of U1 (the red line), take exit "Taubstummengasse" (rear end if you come from the city center). Go up and keep right until you arrive at the escalator. Once you are upstairs, continue on the main street, crossing Taubstummengasse. Enter at the first entrance after the pharmacy (which is on the corner). After having entered, you arrive at a little hall (a concierge is at the right hand side). Cross it and the room where the invited talk and the short presentations are given, will be to your right.
