Seggau 2022/General information/Venue and travel


The 14th International Seminar "Numerical Analysis of Weldability" will take place at Castle Seggau, the former bishop residence in a nicely remote castle in the famous Styrian wine area. The castle is located 40 km south of the Styrian capital Graz.

We try to do our best to assure a calm working atmosphere in a nice surrounding, accompanied by an attractive social programme. The discussion about the items presented in the seminar sessions can be continued during the common meals and the social events, which are a traditional and important part of the Seminar.
