FAQ/During conference

Registration/pricing: While online registration is now closed, you can still register for the conference at the registration desk. The registration desk will be open during the entire conference. There are standard (150 €; e.g. people with salaried work) and reduced (50 €; e.g. students, people without stable salaried work) fees available, as well as single day passes (75/25 €). For attendance at the Opening and Closing events, we ask for € 8 each.

Venues and accessibility: The main conference venue is Sigmund Freud University (SFU), Freudplatz 1, 1020 Wien. You can find a floor plan and map of restaurants and supermarkets around SFU in the ‘Venue’ area of our website.

The Opening and Closing events will be held at Schwelle7 (http://www.schwelle7.at/), Tellgasse 25, 1150 Wien. The Film Night will be held at Schikaneder cinema (http://www.schikaneder.at/), Margaretenstraße 22–24, 1040 Wien. We will offer guided group trips from SFU to the other venues.

SFU and Schwelle7 are wheelchair-accessible. (Schwelle7 is not accessible for electric wheelchairs. Also, please let us know if you are a wheelchair user and want to attend one of the events at Schwelle 7 so the ramp can be prepared.)

Please note that Schikaneder has a bar area where people are allowed to smoke. Reaching the toilet facilities necessitates crossing this space. Please also note that Schikaneder does not have accessible toilet facilities and needs a special door opened for wheelchair access. Please e-mail us if you are interested in participating in the film night and require special access. We sincerely apologise for these circumstances.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide sign language interpretation.

Academic/activist space: This event is explicitly designed to include a diversity of people who may have different understandings of the world and their places in it. We have developed a set of Guidelines for Academic/Activist Spaces to help participants navigate this space.

Mailing list: We have set up a mailing list for participants (e.g. for arranging unofficial meetings, etc.). If you’re not on the list already, you can ask to join by sending an email to nmci2017–participants+subscribe@googlegroups.com. The member list is only visible to the organising team.

Programme and abstracts: You can find the conference programme and abstracts in the Programme section of the website.

Open Space: There will be an Open Space on Friday from 12.45 to 14.15. The Open Space is intended to facilitate discussion groups/workshops/… on topics that are suggested and decided upon spontaneously by the participants. Participants can suggest topics/activities/etc. during the first phase, and we will divide up the available rooms between these. There are no parallel sessions scheduled for this time slot, so it will be dedicated to whatever we collectively decide to dedicate it to.

Restaurants and supermarkets in the area: You can find a map of restaurants and supermarkets around SFU in the ‘Venue’ area of our website.

Childcare: The conference is child-friendly, so you having your children sit with you in the sessions is allowed.
