About the Workshop

How cells accomplish faithful chromosome segregation and how missegregation impacts cell physiology remain areas of intense research. This EMBO Workshop covers a broad range of topics from the mechanistic basis of chromosome segregation to the clinical implications of aneuploidy. Several breakthrough discoveries have recently emerged at the interface between fields, linking chromosome segregation and aneuploidy to DNA repair and replication, innate immune response, senescence and more. To foster the scientific exchange between fields, this EMBO Workshop will bring together researchers from all over the world and from all areas that converge on this theme to discuss their latest unpublished work in an open and friendly atmosphere.

Session Topics:

  • Building the mitotic spindle
  • Chromosomes, centromeres, and kinetochores
  • Mechanics of chromosome segregation
  • Consequences of aneuploidy and polyploidy
  • Aneuploidy in meiosis and embryogenesis
  • Aneuploidy and cancer

Transport

To promote climate-friendly behavior, we encourage all participants to take the train rather than a flight whenever possible. The person who will have traveled the longest distance by train will receive a special award at opening night.

ARRIVING BY TRAIN

If you travel to Vienna by train, you will most likely arrive at one of the city's two main train stations, either "Wien Hauptbahnhof" or Wien Westbahnhof.

From “Wien Hauptbahnhof”, the No.18 tram (direction “Schlachthausgasse”) will take you to the stop “Viehmarktgasse”, around the corner from the IMP building. The trip should take less than 10 minutes.

Also from “Westbahnhof” the No.18 tram (direction “Schlachthausgasse”) takes you to the “Viehmarktgasse” stop. The travel time from Westbahnhof is about 25 minutes.

Check connections and get your tickets online.

ARRIVING BY AIRPLANE

From Vienna International Airport two trains take you to the city center. The metropolitan railway "S7" (= line No. 907 WIEN FLORIDSDORF – FLUGHAFEN WIEN – WOLFSTHAL and back), which usually runs every 30 minutes and takes 19 minutes to travel); and the City Airport Train (CAT).

Regional train S7: The metropolitan railway S7 stops at “St. Marx/Vienna Biocenter”, which is 200 metres from the venue. When embarking at the airport, the direction is given as “Floridsdorf”. The S7 is generally the fastest and cheapest public transport link to the venue.

Express Train CAT: The CAT is an express train, but it only stops downtown at “Wien Mitte/Landstraße”, so a second connection is required to get to the venue: take the 74A bus to the stop “St. Marx”. Combined, the journey may take longer than the S7.

Taxi: If you catch a taxi from the airport, the ride will take about 20 minutes and costs around 35 EURO.

ARRIVING BY CAR

If you arrive via the motorway A23, take the exit called “St. Marx”. Drivers coming via the A4 should exit at “Knoten Prater”.

Parking near the venue

On the surrounding streets (3rd district), parking during the day (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.) is only possible with prepaid tickets and restricted to 2 hours at a time.
