“Balls have a long and proud history in Vienna. Until today, having a ball of its own reflects the social importance of a profession, a guild, a union, or any other part of society. Building on an outstanding history of remarkable contributions to science and society, the scientific community of Vienna of today is alive and vibrant as ever. The Vienna Ball of Sciences brings this community together to celebrate both the past and the present. I am looking forward to this event of the year for every scientist in Vienna!”
