We are aware that the needs of every individual are different. The organizing team of the International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM’23) is committed to providing an inclusive environment and making the conference an enjoyable event for all participants. We are prepared and willing to take additional steps to accommodate participants with special needs or disabilities and enable them to participate in the conference.
This page describes the accessibility features of this year’s conference and venue. Unfortunately, this year’s website is not implemented barrier-free yet, but we hope that future organizing teams will take this necessary step.
Please contact the accessibility chair (email@example.com) if your question is not answered here or if the conference arrangements described are not enough to allow you to attend. We will do our best to accommodate requests for special assistance.
Through the link below, you can access our Accessibility Statement:
What can I request?
We are willing to take all the steps possible to include people with disabilities or special needs at MUM 2023. It is important that all participants who have special requests announce them to us as early as possible. The more notice we have the better, and the more likely we would be able to find an effective implementation of your request that fits the challenges that apply to our conference. Generally, we will honor every request if it is possible for us to do so.
How do I communicate accessibility needs to MUM 2023 organizers?
If you wish to discuss any conference accessibility requirements, you can contact the accessibility chair at any time via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will sign language interpretation or captioning be available?
We will do our best to accommodate requests, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that interpreters or captioners will be available. Upon request, we will get back to you to discuss your needs in more detail.
What are the options for getting to the conference venue?
The venue is well accessible by public transport. The closest underground station (Karlsplatz U1/U4) lies in the direct vicinity of the venue, less than 100 meters away, and is barrier-free. The majority of the public transport options in Vienna are accessible to people with disabilities, including low-floor trains, buses, and trams, and the stations are equipped with tactile guiding strips. For further information, you can visit the accessibility website of Vienna public transport. For information on getting from the public transport station to the venue, please have a look at the map provided on the Travel page.
If you are taking a taxi or Uber, the conference venue is best accessible (barrier-free) from the following drop-off location: Resselgasse 2, 1040, Vienna.
For participants traveling by car, there are two parking garages in the close vicinity of the venue (less than 200 m away). Both garages provide multiple parking spots for persons with a blue badge and are barrier-free. Please note that on-street parking for periods longer than two hours, with or without a blue badge, is not permitted in Vienna, and no dedicated parking spots for persons with disabilities are provided.
Will the conference be accessible by wheelchair or power scooter?
Yes, the conference is accessible to wheelchair users. Access through the main entrance is barrier-free and the room where the main sessions take place is accessible with an elevator. The bathrooms in the vicinity of the room are barrier-free and without any steps. The venue also has dedicated bathrooms for people with disabilities or limited mobility.
Student volunteers will be available on request to help with navigation, or assist with transport and at the lunch buffet. Space for wheelchairs at lunch tables will be provided upon request.
Can a student volunteer assist me during the conference?
Student volunteers will be on hand to aid participants with disabilities, offering support with navigation, at the lunch buffet, or other accessibility needs. If you anticipate requiring assistance during the conference, please specify this in your conference registration form or later by contacting the accessibility chair via email@example.com.
Participants who require personal care assistance should bring their own assistant. Personal care assistants are not required to register for the conference. However, if the assistant will be partaking in food and beverages provided by the conference during coffee breaks, lunches, and the reception, we kindly request adding these to the registration during the 'extra options' stage of the registration process.
What are the arrangements for presenters with accessibility needs?
Wireless microphones will be available to all speakers. Attendees with questions will be asked to use a microphone so that their question is more easily heard. If you would like a student volunteer to operate slides or guide you onto and off the stage, or have other accessibility requests, please contact the accessibility chair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I bring my guide dog?
Guide dogs are welcome at MUM 2023 and can be brought to the venue. Regarding permission to bring service animals to social events, we kindly ask that you contact the accessibility chair via email@example.com in advance.
Can the conference accommodate special dietary needs?
The conference will provide buffet lunches, beverages during breaks, a reception, and a dinner. The food will be vegetarian and vegan options are available, as well. If you have special dietary needs, please communicate these directly to the caterers.
Will the conference be a smoke-free environment?
Smoking is permitted outside of the venue, either at the main entrance or at the courtyard of the building. We ask smokers to move a few steps away from entrances and windows.
What if I have a medical emergency or health problem during the conference? Does the venue have audible and visible fire alarms?
In case of emergency, call 112 for an ambulance. If you require non-urgent medical care, please contact any of the conference organizers or ask a student volunteer. They will provide you with information about local doctors.
Will there be loud music, strobe lighting, spotlights, or other strong sensory experiences?
There will be a photographer on site taking pictures. Beyond this, we are unaware of events that include strong sensory experiences. If you are in need of a designated quiet space at the conference, please contact the accessibility chair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
