Travel and Accomodation


Digital Participation

 If you have a very long distance to travel and, therefore, would have to take a plane but, at the same time, could live with the disadvantages of a digital participation, consider the option to attend digitally. We offer the availability to register in advance (before June 30th) for a digital presentation/participation at/in the DGPs congress 2024. For further details, please visit our Digital Participation page.


Travel to Vienna

 We encourage all participants to opt for the most sustainable transportation options. If at all possible, please travel to the congress by train. We strongly recommend avoiding air travel or coming to Vienna by car, in order to keep our carbon emissions as low as possible. Should it be impossible for you to come by train, please consider a digital participation instead of a flight to Vienna.

A prize will be awarded at the conference to the participant travelling the longest distance per train, bike, or on foot to attend the conference. In case of equal distances, the decision shall be taken by drawing a lot. The legal recourse to the courts is not permitted.


Transportation in Vienna

 We also kindly ask you to use public transport, car pooling, or Bikesharing (e.g. WienMobil: in Vienna rather than Taxis during your stay. Event times are all scheduled in such a way that public transport can be used.

Should you choose to travel by rental car or taxi, please opt for more environmentally friendly options such as Greenride, an electric car rental company, and Taxi40100, a taxi dispatch service offering the option of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Importantly, we also encourage you to calculate and offset your CO2 emissions for the conference, especially if you are not able to use public transport. Further information on carbon offsets can be foud here and here. Information on calculating your ecological footprint can be found here.



 We recommend booking an accommodation close to the conference venue. This will reduce the need for long-distance commuting and further minimize our collective carbon emissions.

If possible, please choose an environmentally certified hotel (Austrian Eco-label, European Ecolabel, EMAS, etc.) and use the environmentally friendly services offered by your hotel (change towels and sheets only when necessary, etc.).

Switch off all lights and electronic devices (TV, air conditioning, heating, computer, etc.) when leaving the hotel room temporarily.
