Vienna Ball of Sciences

Since 2015 the scientific community in Austria gets together in the glamorous setting of the Vienna City Hall. Even though the series of the Vienna Ball of Sciences is still wet under the nose, it has become one of Vienna’s highlights during the waltzing season, combining entertainment with numerous displays of academic humor and attitude which goes beyond the linguistic, ethnic, gender, and academic borders.

Since 2015, the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms is a proud partner of the Vienna Ball of Sciences. VCLA has in collaboration with researchers and doctoral candidates of the FWF funded doctoral college Logical Methods in Computer Science – LogiCS contributed to the ball´s scientific character with activities that stir curiosity, such as logic riddles and algorithmic thinking.
