Workshop Sign Up

Sign up for the workshops and all-day workshops has opened!

To sign up, please click on "Registration: Additional bookings" on the left-hand menu.


We have been informed that a company named "Exhibitors-Housing-Services" has been contacting attendees of the Colloquium and claiming they are the official company for booking hotel rooms for the 2015 Vienna Colloquium. This is NOT TRUE. Do not use or book through this company as it appears to be a scam. The official company we are using for our hotel booking is Austropa Interconvention.

Thank you for your submissions!

You should have already received notification about your submitted abstract or workshop. Congratulations to our accepted presentations and posters and we are looking forward to a comprehensive and well-rounded workshop program!

Come to Vienna!

Vienna is particularly beautiful in autumn, when the chestnut leaves turn gold and the weather is ideal for visiting the vast array of historic landmarks, museums, galleries, and parks. On the evening of October 3 we will launch the Colloquium with a welcome reception in one of the city’s most exclusive and splendid buildings - the Kursalon, where the Strauss brothers once charmed audiences with their famed Promenade Concerts. Colloquium attendees can mingle and catch up on the terrace of the ballroom overlooking the magnificent gardens of the Stadtpark (City park) while enjoying a glass of Grüner Veltliner or Riesling from the Wachau Valley wine region, home of the Austrian Cochrane Branch (Danube University Krems). To end the Colloquium, we have been invited by the Vienna City Mayor to enjoy a Gala dinner in the opulently decorated main ballroom of the Gothic-styled Vienna Town Hall. Perhaps you will be willing to demonstrate your newly acquired dancing talents by waltzing to the Schöne Blaue Donau under the imposing chandeliers of a magnificent Viennese ballroom?

Wir freuen uns auf Ihr Kommen!
