CPC 2010 will be held at Vienna University of Technology in Vienna, Austria.
CPC 2010 will take place on the sixth (topmost) floor of the "new" wing of Vienna University of Technology's Electrical Engineering Building, Gußhausstraße 27-29, 1040 Vienna, Austria. This building is close to the historic city center and just a short walk away from Karlsplatz, one of Vienna's main public transport hubs, which is served by underground lines U1, U2, and U4.
The Electrical Engineering Building and the approximate location of the conference room on the topmost floor are highlighted on this map of the Karlsplatz area (larger size; note the orientation: north is to the right). The conference room is equipped with a video beamer. The venue is covered by a wireless local area network providing free Internet access. Network and user account information will be provided at the registration desk.

Vienna has efficient means of public transport. There are underground, tram, and bus lines as well as railways, all usable with the same ticket. A single ticket is valid for travelling one way (no loops) in one zone, where the whole city of Vienna is a single zone. You can change to different lines in the course, but you must not interrupt your journey. Single tickets can be purchased at a price of € 1.80 at ticket machines in underground and railway stations and at points of advance sale. Tobacconists (shops marked "Trafik") also sell tickets. Usually there are no ticket machines at tram and bus stops.
You can purchase tickets on board of busses and trams at an increased rate of € 2.20. Tickets must be validated at the begin of a journey. To validate a ticket, stamp it at the blue or red machines located at the entrance of underground and railway stations as well as on buses and trams. Tickets bought directly from the tram or bus driver (and some tickets from ticket machines - be careful) are automatically validated and need not be stamped. Apart from single tickets there are passes for longer periods of time. Passes are available for 24 hours and 72 hours (beginning at the time when stamped) and as weekly, monthly and annual passes.
The Vienna International Airport (VIE) in Schwechat is about 20 km away in the south-east of Vienna. Train lines S7 and S2 connect the city center with the airport. You need a single ticket for two zones (3.60 Euro) between the airport and any place in the city. To go from the airport to the CPC 2010 location you may change at Landstraße/Wien Mitte to the U4 underground line (towards Hütteldorf) and ride to the Karlsplatz station. The City Airport Train (CAT) is a slightly faster and more comfortable line connecting the airport with Wien Mitte (8 to 10 Euro one way). Furthermore, there are bus services to and from several places in the city.
The taxi fare to or from the airport is around 40 Euro. If you wish to book a taxi online ahead of time, you can try http://www.airportdriver.at/ or http://www.ck-airportservice.at/.
