ERF 2015 will be held at the Aula der Wissenschaft - Hall of Science
Wollzeile 27A, 1010 Vienna, www.aula-wien.at


The "Aula der Wissenschaften" has always been a meeting place and a place to share knowledge. Dating back to the 17th century, the building with its lecture halls was originally used by the university. At the top floor, the early baroque building has accommodated the impressive hall of the Jesuit theatre from the very beginning. During the 18th century the "Wiener Zeitung" - the oldest daily newspaper in the world - had its editorial department on these highly traditional premises, and also the Austrian State Printing House had its home there.

After the renovation and restoration of the building (2003 - 2006), the spacious glass surfaces provide the kind of transparency that is also inherent in state-of-the-art science: progressive, open, an escape from the elitist, intellectual ivory tower. A knowledge-based information society needs meeting places that stimulate communication and understanding among companies, research institutes and interest groups.
