SMBE 2015 will be held in Vienna, Austria, one of the great European capitals. Vienna is home to an impressive number of museums, music halls, operas, and theaters, and a wide diversity of restaurants, bars, pastry shops (Konditorei) and ice cream parlors (Eissalon). Most famously, Viennese coffee houses represent a unique aspect of the local lifestyle worth experiencing.


The venue will be the Hofburg Palace, a former royal residence in the heart of Vienna, the capital of Austria. The Hofburg, the residence of Austrian monarchs for over 600 years, has been used as a conference venue since 1958. Though equipped with state of-the-art facilities, it maintains its imperial charm. The Hofburg is within walking distance of centrally located hotels and attractions, and is easily reached from further away via Vienna's superb public transport system.


Come enjoy some top-notch science in a spectacular location!
