Vienna is a beautiful city with rich and diverse opportunities to enjoy both classical and modern culture. It lies in the heart of Central Europe and can be easily reached by a wide network of (day and night) trains as well as flights.

The Venue

ESCAN 2022 will take place in the teaching center of the WU campus of the University of Economics Vienna (WU = “Wirtschaftsuniversität”).

The WU campus is located close to a very nice area of Vienna, the so-called “Prater”, with the Prater main alley surrounded by lush meadows and forests nearby as well as an all-year amusement park that hosts one of the major Vienna hallmarks, the giant ferris wheel (“Riesenrad”).

You will easily find the conference venue by following the directions listed here. Please also see the overview map below on how to find your way from the subway to the conference venue. Ideally you exit at U2 subway stop KRIEAU, which is located 5 min by foot from the venue. B = Teaching Center. 

The lectures will take place in various lecture halls, located on the ground floor (“Audimax”) as well as on the 5th floor (TC.5.01 to TC.5.15). Poster sessions will be held on the second floor, the so-called “Lernzone”. But do not worry – once you are in the building you will easily find your way around, and if not, our staff members will help you find your way.

Please note: Admission controls will require you to wear your name badge!
