VIENNA, AUSTRIA, JULY 16-20, 2003
As was officially announced at Quinnipiac, the next meeting of our
Society will be held in Vienna, Austria, in mid-July 2003, at the
invitation of the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition
Research (KLI) and the University of Vienna. Our local hosts are
Werner Callebaut, who is the scientific manager of the KLI, and Gerd
Mueller, who chairs the KLI Board and is a professor at the Faculty
of Medicine of the University of Vienna. The KLI welcomes you to
visit its homepage at <http://www.kli.ac.at/>.
Vienna, the city of classical music and many important modern
intellectual and cultural developments, needs little recommendation.
Being clean, green, and safe, and ranking very high in most other
dimensions of quality of life as well,it is a preferred location for
conference venues. Located in the very heart of Europe, Vienna can
be reached easily by aircraft, train, or car. The Viennese public
transport network ranks among the best in the world. In addition to
enjoying the city's own cultural riches, conference participants may
want to visit other historical cities such as Prague (Czech
Republic), Budapest (Hungary), or Cracow (Poland), which can all be
reached from Vienna within a few hours; or they may prefer a hiking
tour in the nearby Alps.
The meetings will take place at the Vienna University Campus. The
campus is located centrally, in the recently renovated historic city
hospital complex. The campus is within walking distance from many
hotels and "Studentenheime" (dorms) and offers a nice array of
restaurants and pubs.
The Local Arrangements Committee is chaired by Dolores Schuetz, who
can be contacted at the KLI: <[log in to unmask]>;
