Conference Dinner: Traditional Viennese Dinner @ Heuriger

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 

Address: Fuhrgassl-Huber, Neustift am Walde 68, A-1190 Wien

 

With 612ha of vineyards, Vienna is the only capital worldwide maintaining a large viniculture within the city boundaries. The “Wiener Gemischter Satz” is Vienna’s showcase wine which will be offered (pure or as “Spritzer”, i.e. mixed with sparkling water) at our ISWC 2017 Traditional Viennese Dinner.

Besides homegrown white wine and grape juices you will enjoy traditional Austrian food and music – that’s the whole agenda for the evening! The dinner will take place at a “Heuriger” (traditional wine tavern), located on the outskirts of Vienna. A “Heuriger” is the East Austrian name for taverns where local winemakers serve their new homegrown wines in a pleasant and cheerful atmosphere. ISWC organisation will provide buses to get there and back.

 


 

ISWC jam session

The ISWC jam session officially returns!

Monday, October 23, 2017 

Address: WU Library & Learning Center, Welthandelsplatz 1, 1020 Viena

 

The Semantic Web community is crowded with music lovers and several of our fine researchers are also excellent music players! After the great success of the Sydney-Jam-Session at ISWC2013 we launch the Vienna-Jam-Session at ISWC2017.

This is a call for musicians in the Semantic Web community that want to share their musical skills and contribute to a very fun night after the ISWC 2017 poster and demo session on the 23rd of October 2017.

We will try and cater for all music tastes: blues, funk, soul jazz, latin… feel free to suggest anything interesting!

If you want to get involved (sharing tunes, ideas, music sheets) request access to the shared drive and join the facebook group, where we can all contribute with links, videos, suggestions etc.

There will be some time to rehearse a bit before the jam, all details will be announced. The jam session will conclude the poster and demo session.
