Conference audience and mission[edit]

The MediaWiki Users and Developers Conference Fall 2024 will be a three-day conference featuring discussions of topics related to the usage of MediaWiki software by and within companies, non-profits, governments, organizations, and communities, including the Semantic MediaWiki community. If you use MediaWiki or you're interested in it, we would love to see you attend.

This conference aims to:

  • inspire/onboard new users,
  • inform on where and how MediaWiki is used,
  • convey and consolidate best practices,
  • initiate/foster/integrate application and development and
  • strengthen the community of stakeholders and its service portfolio.

Learn how to "do" MediaWiki in order to assume your responsibilities regarding your organization's knowledge management.

Conference venue[edit]

The conference venue Gasometer D is easily accessible by Vienna's extensive U-Bahn system, conveniently located next to Gasometer Station on subway line U3 (Orange Line). This line conveniently runs through the city centre (which is accessible via Stephansplatz Station), as well as Landstraße Station, where travellers usually would connect to Line U3 when coming from the Vienna International Airport. By car, you take the exit "St. Marx" from the highway A23 and follow the signs to "Gasometer City". Car parking is available for 7,5 EUR/day. You can find details here: http://www.wien.gv.at/english/history/archives/contact.html

Travel and local accommodations[edit]

Local accommodations[edit]

You are responsible for booking accomodation individually. We will soon provide some suggestions.


Vienna Airport is reachable by the more expensive but fast CAT - City Airport Train or the slower but cheaper S-Bahn. Both arrive at the station "Landstraße" where you can take the U3 to Gasometer (towards Simmering).
Note that the train "Railjet" departs from Vienna Airport and usually has the next stop at Vienna central station. From there you have to take the U1 to the city center (Stephansplatz) and change into the U3 (towards Simmering) to go to Gasometer.
An alternative (reached by some low-cost airlines) is the Bratislava Airport. From there you can take the bus or train.

Public transport[edit]

Austrian Railway
Vienna Subway
There are 24, 48 and 72hour Tickets for getting around in Vienna by public transport.
