2015 – EUNET Annual conference and General Assembly 2015

The Annual conference and General Assembly of EUNET 2015 will take place from
Thursday October 22nd
to Sunday October 25th 2015  in Wals-Siezenheim near Salzburg (Austria).

Our annual conference will deal with two important moments in history: the end of the Second World War and the Schuman declaration and their impact on today’s Europe. Hopes and dreams have been raised 70 and 65 years ago. Have those hopes become true, and what is still to be done for bringing Europe closer to its citizens?

Key-note speaker will be Thierry Curiale from Orange France.
We will have presentations from Planpolitk, RespektNet and Kommzumir

The board decided to return to the place of the 2007 General Assembly for our annual conference. Our conference venue is the Hotel Königgut which will accommodate 2/3 of the participants in single rooms, and most of the programme will take place there too.
1/3 of the group will be accommodate at Hotel Grünauer Hof, a 10 minutes walk away from the conference venue.
A guided city tour of Salzburg, in English, German and French, will be organised for you.

How to get there?
The closest airport is Salzburg Airport. There are many flights to Salzburg via Vienna, in case you can’t get a direct flight.
If you have trouble finding a flight to Salzburg for a reasonable price, Munich airport may be an alternative destination for you. There is a cheap and reliable bus line (14€ one way) going directly from Munich airport to Salzburg main train station every second hour. Please keep in mind that it takes nearly three hours for the bus trip.

Note for participants going to Cologne on Sunday 25th: the conference venue is only 7 minutes away by taxi from Salzburg airport. If you skip lunch, you will make it in time for the Germanwings flight at 14:05h to Cologne.

With 70 participants the conference is fully booked. Registration is closed.

There will be 60 places available for our annual gathering and places will be given on a first come first served basis.

This year the registration process will take you more time compared to the previous years. Their was a huge request during our last year General Assembly to get to know each other better right at the beginning of the conference. Therefore we ask you to provide some information on yourself and your organisation during the registration process. This information, together with a picture we will take of you at Salzburg, will be printed and pinned to the wall in the conference room.
We also want to know in which working group you intend to take part to be able to pre-select rooms according to the size of the group.

Many thanks in advance for your understanding that registration will take a couple of minutes.
