Vienna Ball of Sciences 2018

Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) of the Faculty of Informatics, Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien), is once again partnering up with the Vienna Ball of Sciences, thus continuing the legacy of its co-founder Helmut Veith of planting the seeds of Logic withing the whole of society.

Vienna Ball of Sciences, is going to take place on January 27, 2018 – starting at 8 pm in the splendid ball room of Vienna’s town hall. The Ball represents Vienna’s science and research community in its excellence and diversity. The uniqueness of the ball is its combination of the typical Viennese Ball´s elements and contributions from Vienna’s universities showcasing in a playfully classic atmosphere the outstanding research capabilities of the science hub of central Europe.

Open the Doors to other Dimensions – with Logic

VCLA is excited to present the ball’s attendees with a logic puzzle, designed especially for the occasion. The first attendees who are going to solve the puzzle correctly will receive a technology which is able to create a uniquely blended interactive experience. Almost like opening the doors to the other dimension. Which one?

You can claim your reward, a prize better than any magical philosopher’s stone: technology made by modern science that opens the doors to other dimensions. Where? At the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) booth between 21:00 and 1:00.

The puzzle was created especially for the Vienna Ball of Sciences by Maarten Löffler, University of Utrecht.

Logic and Computation at TU Wien – LogiCS

At the VCLA booth meet and greet the current PhD candidates of LogiCS doctoral program (PhD), funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF and run jointly by the three Austrian universities Vienna University of Technology, Graz University of Technology and Johannes Kepler University Linz. The PhD students attending the ball are sponsored by VCLA in the light of their voluntary contributions in various areas of the LogiCS degree programme.
