Vienna, Austria is a charming historic capital in the heart of Europe, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site embedded in lovely surroundings. It is renowed for its rich cultural offerings (e.g. during QCMC: an excellent dance festival), its cuisine, relaxed atmosphere and high quality of life. Vienna has a long-standing tradition in pioneering Quantum Mechanics both in theory and experiment. In recent years a new cluster in Quantum Science has emerged in Vienna as a result of joint efforts at the University of Vienna (Quantum Groups), Vienna University of Technology (Atominstitut), and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IQOQI).
