Dear Robert,

The transport pass is a really innovative idea (for MEI).  Thanks for that.

I will in Vienna from Sunday evening for a week.  Is there any way to get hold of the pass before Wednesday?  I’ll be staying near the conference venue (Hotel Baron am Schottentur).

Many hanks for all your hard work on behalf of the other arrangements.

Dear colleagues,

We would like to address you with the latest information shortly before the start of the MEC Vienna 2019.

We will be available on Wednesday morning (pre conference day) from 8 am for your registration in Hörsaal 2 (lecture room 2) of the Institute of Musicology. Please register before attending the workshops.

For our foreign guests, we will provide a weekly ticket for Vienna's public transport system at the registration.

The participants of the workshops of the pre conference day will be contacted, if necessary, by the responsible persons of the workshops.

We do not offer catering on the pre conference day. You can find supermarkets and many restaurants near the conference venue.

The participants of the guided tour through the Music Collection of the Austrian National Library meet at 4 pm at Michaelerplatz, directly at the entrance to the Hofburg.


On Saturday there is the possibility for meetings after the Community Meeting (CM). Separate rooms are available for the MEI SIGs.  All other groups can meet in Hörsaal 1 (lecture room 1). We will organize this after the CM.

Tickets for the conference dinner for partners can be purchased at the conference registration (30 EUR, cash only).

Please note the travel guide, the map of the conference venue and the "Green meeting" information on the conference website.


In particular, we would like to invite you to the festive opening of the conference and the first keynote speech in the historic Festsaal of the Academy of Sciences. The auditorium of the University of Vienna (now the Festsaal) was one of the most important concert halls in Vienna around 1800. Beethoven conducted the world premiere of his 7th Symphony and his symphonic battle painting "Wellington's Victory" here on December 8 and 12, 1813. In addition, the 'mechanical trumpeter' of the inventor Johann Nepomuk Mälzel made a spectacular performance. The event begins at 7 pm.  After the keynote there will be a reception in the Aula of the Academy.


We are very pleased to welcome you in Vienna.

For the Organizing Committee

Robert Klugseder, chair
