For participants arriving at Vienna International Airport (VIE) in Wien-Schwechat, we offer to organize a direct shuttle transfer to the conference site in Hernstein on Monday, Jun. 24th, 2013. The shuttle busses (up to 8 persons) are operated by a private company, and you will be picked up in the arrival hall of the airport by the shuttle driver. The fee for this shuttle bus is 20.- Euro per person (min. 4 persons per transfer) payable in cash (only) at the registration site. If you want to use this shuttle transfer (60 km, approx. 1 hour transfer time), we need to know your exact arrival time and flight number; please return the shuttle reservation form by e-mail to Mrs. Marik at |marik@iap.tuwien.ac.at until June 1st, 2013 the latest. Please mind that in order to reach the minimum number of persons per transport, you may have to wait for other flights to arrive. Solo-transports (e.g. if you are not arriving on Sunday) can be arranged, but will be considerably more expensive (please inquire). Transport back to the airport on Friday, June 28th will be organized during the conference, with possibly even cheaper fares depending on the number of passengers per trip.

As an alternative to the shuttle bus, you may take a train from the airport to Vienna and change there to a train to Leobersdorf (approx. 2 - 3 hours); see section on the arrival by train below.
