black European Science Foundation – COST action
StatSeq meeting on RNA-Seq
24-26 March 2011 Vienna

Workshop on RNA-Seq   &
Strategy Session on Joint grant proposals

(organized by Working Group 1)

The workshop is held at the Muthgasse institutes of Boku University Vienna, in fast and easy reach by public transport or car from the city (10–20 minutes). Vienna has a well serviced international airport which is close to the city and features excellent public transport connections (20–30 minutes to the city).

The city of Vienna itself is renowned for its beauty, culture, and high general quality of life, so do plan a longer stop if you can take some time out!

Getting to the workshop

The institute address is A-1190 Muthgasse 18, and meetings will be held in the seminar-room 12 on the ground floor of the new building (Muthgasse III).

The institute is easily reached by public transport or by car. A choice of excellent public transport connections (e.g., tube U4 Heiligenstadt) is displayed in the interactive online map of the City of Vienna. In this combined aerial photo & map, the institute building in Muthgasse is marked by a red circle and transport connections are shown in colour (simple map for printing). The transport operators offer a convenient online route planner, which generate maps complete with walking instructions to and from the specified addresses.

From the airport (station Flughafen), the easiest route takes one by regional train (S-Bahn or CAT) to the central station Wien Mitte. There, change to the tube and use line U4 all the way to Heiligenstadt. The journey time from Wien Mitte is about 9 minutes, the trip from the airport to Heiligenstadt takes a total of 36–44 minutes. From station Heiligenstadt it is then but a brief 7-minute walk to the institute.

In case you are coming by car, the institute also has an underground car park. There is a fee if you stay for more than two hours. If you are driving along the Donaukanalbundesstraße, take the Döbling exit; coming from the Donauuferautobahn, use exit Nordbrücke (note that this is the second exit in an adjacent pair of slipways!). The car park entrance is in Muthgasse.


We recommend booking a room in a central Pension (B&B) or hotel in the vicinity of a U4 tube station. You can check connections from your hotel address by using the online route planner.

If you prefer something more personal than a standard hotel chain, we can recommend
