Preliminary Program is Online

Our first preliminary program is online. We ask all authors to check it and confirm it by registering before 17 October 2011. (At least one presenter per paper. If you did so already, you can ignore this, of course.)

As we have a high number of presenters we decided to have short time slots of 10 and 15 minutes to allow for more time for networking in the breaks.

Vienna Sightseeing Guide for our Participants

Are you planning your trip to Vienna already? This might be interesting for you: our participants can get free access to an MP3-based city guide for Vienna. You can download a series of MP3 files to your audio player and get in-depth information about famous and interesting spots in Vienna. The service is available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.

Interested? Go to the Viennese Hotel and City Guide and use »LBS11« to start your free download.

Reviewing is Completed

Finally we managed to complete the reviewing process. We just sent out the notifications to all corresponding authors – in case you didn't get yours, please inform us at

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers who helped us in coming to decisions. Thank you!

Delay in Reviewing

Dear authors, thank you for your submissions in the Full Paper and Work in Progress categories.

Due to the summer time we encounter delays in the reviewing process. We hope to send you the information of acceptance until the end of July. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause. Of course, we will postpone the following deadlines accordingly.

Thank You / Call for Showcases still Open

We received about 60 submissions in the Work in Progress and Full Paper categories. Thank you for your contribution! We will now start the reviewing process and inform you about its results in July.

As we did not get any submissions in the Showcases category (see Call for Papers) yet, we invite you to submit proposals in this category until September 18.
