Linz, the capital of Upper Austria, is both a city of culture and of industry. Located at the Danube, it features a historic downtown and a modern university campus just north of the Danube, where the conference will take place. For more information about Linz and its places of interest, see the tourist information.

The Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) was founded in 1966. Although a young university, it has already become a cutting-edge institution for science, academics, business and the community. Over 19,000 students are enrolled in over 60 academic degree programs.

The Department of Computer Science is a vibrant place to study and a premier institution for research. The department employs a 35-strong tenured faculty and has more than 1000 enrolled students (roughly 650 Bachelor, 300 Master, and 80 PhD students).
