Ars Electronica Center

The Ars Electronica Center is a place of inquiry and discovery, experimentation and exploration, a place that has taken the world of tomorrow as its stage, and that assembles and presents influences from many different ways of thinking and of seeing things. It hosts exhibitions, events and the ARS ELECTRONICA FUTURELAB which constitutes the research- and development-motor of Ars Electronica.
The IIID Traffic & Transport Forum will be hosted in the SkyLoft, a great location overlooking the city.
