Question: Likely timing for meetings in Vienna?

02 Apr 2018

Dear Andi (and other organisers),

I realise that we have all only just returned from Berlin, but my thoughts are already turning to Vienna.

In order to help with my travel scheduling, can you please indicate if the meeting will run from midday on the Wednesday to midday on the Friday (that is, two full days spread over three calendar days)?

That would help me decide whether to get into Vienna the night before or come in on the morning of the Wednesday.

It would also be helpful to know the likely location so I can book a hotel early.

Sorry to be asking for stuff so early...

Thanks!

    Hi Andrew,
    sorry, I just noticed that I hadn't sent out the details yet, so here
    they are:
    - Timing:
    The meeting will run from Wed. noon until Fri noon, i.e. 2 full days
    spread over three. (Which shouldn't keep you from arriving a day early
    to settle in and enjoy vienna - I am sure we can fill any free time you
    might have somehow, be it with meetings or otherwise :-)
    - Venue:
    The meeting will be held in the the main building of the Technical
    University of Vienna, at Karlsplatz 13 (metro station Karlsplatz, metro
    lines U1, U2, U4, so easily reachable from virtually all directions. The
    meeting will take place in the "Festsaal", detailed location info is
    available in the attached PDF document. This is right in the city
    center, about 10mins walk to the Opera, Musikverein, Konzerthaus,
    Theater an der Wien, etc.
    - Hotels:
    There are a number of hotels in the vicinity where TU Wien has
    negotiated preferential rates for events at TU Wien, see the atached
    list. But basically any hotel that's near to a metro station (or
    anywhere surrounding the Karlsplatz area, Vienna is a pretty small,
    walkable city) is fine.
    - Arrival:
    Vienna International Airport is approx. 20 minutes to the east of the
    city. Getting downtown is usually pretty straightforward, either via the
    Airport Express Train (CAT, 16 mins), the slightly slower but cheaper
    regular train S7 (20 mins), both of which will take you to the metro
    stop in Landstraße-Wien Mitte (U3, U4), or by an express train to the
    cenral railway station Hauptbahnhof (17mins, U1), as well a several bus
    lines. There are also several pre-booked taxi services, the biggest
    company at the airport is Airportdriver https://www.airportdriver.at/en
    fixed price of 33EUR to any place within Vienna, pre-book at least
    24hours before arrival.
    More detailed arrival info and links are avilable at the TU Wine
    homepage at
    https://www.tuwien.ac.at/en/contactsearch/visit_us_travelling_information/
    If there is any additional information that any of you needs, please let
    me know!
    Looking forward to welcoming you in Vienna!
    Andi

    Hi Andi,

    Are there any updates on the agenda? I might have missed communications on this.

    Kind regards,

    Dimitris

    Hello Dimitris and all,
    The schedule for the Chairs meeting is Wednesday 13 June at noon until Friday at noon. I’ve heard a proposal to add an optional Friday afternoon working session for whomever can stay, but I haven’t confirmed this yet. I’ve copied the logistics information from Andi below with additional details on venue, hotels, etc.
    In taking on Larry’s role for the Chairs meeting, I am working on a draft agenda with the plan to put up a strawman for the group to discuss soon. The main component at the moment is to advance the group coordination ideas from the Gaithersburg mtg in January (group metadata, group categorization, and activity roadmapping). Any initial feedback is very welcome! If there is interest in a preliminary conversation about the agenda, we could create a small organizing committee.
    I hope this answers your question. I hope to have more information out to you all soon.

    Lynn,
    Thanks for doing this! I hope there is room on the agenda to present our
    results of the survey for Mapping the RDA groups. We are getting a good
    response to the survey and it would be a really good opportunity to present
    the results.
    Thanks,

    Many thanks Lynn,
    I hope you could also squeeze an update from the Disciplinary Collaboration
    Framework work. Is always a great opportunity to discuss the issues around
    disciplinary groups in the co-chairs meetings.
    I will only be able to make Thursday and Friday (14-15 June), as I will be
    in another meeting on the 13th.
    Kind regards,
