Paper Submission

Authors are requested to submit full papers. Accepted papers, based on double blind reviews, have to be presented orally or as poster (registration required). Submission and presentation of a similar paper at another international conference is no reason for rejection, but original contributions are preferred.

Papers have to be written in English, are limited to 8 pages (references included) and must be prepared in PDF according to: 

Submission site: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/OAGM2014/

Guidelines for Camera-ready Papers (on arXiv)

Final papers are to be submitted to arXiv.org by the authors.

ÖAGM 2014 follows the index-before-papers procedure to create a ÖAGM 2014 proceedings home page on arXiv. To this end, the organizers submit an index page to arXiv, and receive an <code><em>indexID</em></code>, which they will communicate to the authors prior to submission of their papers. 

  • Prepare your final version following the previous ÖAGM instructions
  • Please follow the arXiv instructions, and note how to create references to and in arXiv documents, if applicable.
  • The recommended format is PDFLaTeX. Insert the indexID you will have received from the ÖAGM organizers into the \OAGMarXiv{indexID}  command in the LaTeX preamble, and include OAGM.cls with your submitted files.
  • On the arXiv submission form, please include the following line in the Comments field:
    Part of the OAGM 2014 proceedings (arXiv:indexID)
    using the indexID you will have received from the OAGM organizers.
  • On the arXiv submission form, please include the following line in the Report-no field:
    OAGM/2014/nn
    where nn is the two-digit paper ID assigned to your submission by the CMT system (Prepend a leading zero if your paper ID is lower than 10).
  • When you receive the permanent arXiv ID of your submission, please communicate it by e-mail to emilie[dot]morvant[AT]ist[dot]ac[dot]at.

Guidelines for Presentations

For the oral presentations a time schedule of 20 minutes will be reserved per talk (ca. 15 minutes for talk + 5 for questions).

Info & Directions

Info&Directions

Raiffeisen Lecture Hall, Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria)
Am Campus 1, A – 3400 Klosterneuburg, Austria (*my GPS does not find the address )
GPS coordinates:   48° 18′ 32.31” N     16° 15′ 27.79” E

The campus of IST Austria is located in Klosterneuburg, a historical town to the northwest of Vienna. The campus lies only 18 km away from the center of Vienna.

Getting to / from IST Austria

Institute of Science and Technology Austria is located in Maria Gugging, Klosterneuburg, about 40 minutes from Vienna downtown.

Both the IST Shuttle (Bus 242) and the Bus 239 stop in front of the Institute (stop Maria Gugging – IST Austria) and travel to the subway stop Heiligenstadt on line U4 (see subway map). The trip takes about 25 minutes. IST Shuttle  service (free for conference participants) is once an hour on weekdays, and Bus 239 approximately every 30 minutes (2 EUR payable on the bus). To get to the IST on Sunday take bus 239 from Vienna. From Klosterneuburg (see detailed map of Klosterneuburg city) you can take Bus 239 or Bus 341.

Getting to / from the Airport (VIE)

By public transport, the best option is to:

  1. Take the CAT train directly from the VIE airport to Landstrasse-Wien Mitte U4 station (16 minutes with no intermediate stops, 11 EUR one way / 17 EUR return, service every 30 minutes, the well-marked stop is immediately outside the airport arrivals hall, green ticket machines are in the baggage claim and at the CAT train station).
  2. Take U4 direction Heiligenstadt to the last stop (Heiligenstadt) after getting a regular on-way ticket for 2 EUR.
  3. Take IST Shuttle bus (Bus 242), Bus 239 or the taxi from Heiligenstadt to IST. Both buses start from the same location, immediately outside of the subway station. Tickets for Bus 239 can be bought on the bus.

The IST shuttle bus schedule shows connections to the airport; the whole trip from IST to VIE should take about 1 hour. If you take the CAT train for your departure flight, you can check in your luggage directly at the CAT train terminal at Wien Mitte.

Public transport in Vienna

The public transit system connects to the Federal Railways (local S-bahn and long distance trains) and to the Vienna Airport. The same single-fare ticket is valid for all means of transport in the city zone and permits changes. U4 stop Heiligenstadt is the last stop within the city zone (separate fare is needed for Bus 239). Other kinds of tickets (e.g. day tickets, useful for exploring Vienna) are also available from the ticket machines. U-bahn runs very frequently (3-5 minutes during daytime), from 5am until 20 minutes past midnight, but throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays and before public holidays.

Taxis

It is possible to take a cab from IST to Heiligenstadt, Vienna downtown or the airport (best to have cash ready, ATM is in the institute lobby):

  • Taxi Danzinger (+43 2243 202 20, +43 676 666 50 70, about 55 EUR to the airport)
  • Taxi Glueck (+43 2243 361 11, +43 664 224 88 20, about 55 EUR to the airport)
  • ask at the IST Reception for help with other transport options

You can take a cab from the airport directly to IST, but be sure to have the full address of the Institute at hand (IST Austria, Am Campus 1, 3400 Maria Gugging-Klosterneuburg). If their GPS does not have this new address yet, try Hauptstrasse 2, 3400 Maria Gugging-Klosterneuburg.
