What a night!


Here they are: the images from the ball 2024!

Thank you for coming. It was also an incomparable ball night for us in the organizing committee. FOMO?  Follow this link to register for #SciBall25 on January 25th, 2025.

The recordings of the opening and of the midnight extravaganza  with the cuddly choir and the midnight quadrille are available on Youtube.

A first selection of photos is available from party.at and from ball photographer Roland Ferrigato. Also online are the pictures of our guests of honor on the red carpet. For the formal photos taken on the grand stair case see this slideshow where prints of these pictures can be ordered.

The ball magazine deepens the information and explains the presentations that could be experienced at the ball.
