The University of Vienna:

The host of this conference is the University of Vienna, which is the oldest university in the German-speaking world. It was founded by Duke Rudolph IV in 1365 as “Alma Mater Rudolphina Vindobonensis”.

The current main building, located on the Ringstrasse, was built between 1877 and 1844. With the University Act of 2002, all Austrian universities became autonomous, and therefore more self-depended.

Today, the University of Vienna contains 15 faculties. 91,000 students can choose from more than 180 courses and 9,400 employees work at more than 60 locations.

A lot of Nobel laureates have been studying in the University of Vienna. Erwin Schrödinger, one of the most famous physicists, used to be a former student of maths and physics. Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, Gregor Mendel, founder of new science of genetics, Paul Lazarsfeld, famous sociologist, Josef Breuer, who made key discoveries in neurophysiology, belong among many others to the lists of famous alumnis.
