VIENNA IV 2014 – FAQ and Registration



How does registration for Vienna IV 2014 work?

Registration starts on Monday, November 25th, 2013 at 12pm (noon) Vienna time (GMT+1). Registration will be open for one week. More specifically it ends on Monday December 2nd, 2013 at 12am (midnight). Then we will notify the teams and adjudicators that have successfully received spots in Vienna IV2014.

They then have a 2-week time frame to secure their spots by paying the registration fee and sending us the proof of payment via e-mail to (International participants (outside of Europe) can also secure their spots by providing us with plane tickets to Vienna for the date that Vienna IV 2014 is held. You can then later pay your registration fee upon arrival at the tournament).

After one week (if the money hasn’t already been sent) they will receive a payment reminder informing them of the fast approaching end of the payment deadline. If we don’t receive any notices or registration fees until the end of the deadline we will have to reallocate the teamspots and adjudicator spots to teams that are currently positioned on the waitlist. Those then have the chance to secure their spots by paying their registration fee within 2 weeks of notice from us. This will go on until all teamspots and adjudicator spots are filled.

Will it increase my chances of securing a spot in the tournament if I sign up multiple times for one institution?

We urge everyone to sign up collectively and only once per institution. We will only count the first sign-up. So any further sign-ups will just be ignored and won’t increase your chances on a spot.

  1. Hi Marian,
    your second slot is now on the wait-list. As soon as teams drop out we allocate slots to the wait list, on the earlier you registered, the more likely you get the slot!

  2. Hey!

    I have registered two teams for the tournament, but only one spot was assignated.
    When will we find out about the second spot?


  3. Hi Stav, sorry it is taking us some time to process all the requests we received. Yet generally, if you registered you should be fine and you will hear back soonish (of course you might have already heard back in the meantime, but I am not in charge of registration, so this is a general info)

  4. Hi
    I registered 3 tames and 4 judges for Tel Aviv University (Israel) but got no conformation.

    Also, pleas send me an invoice on the amount we need to pay (with the account number and name of account owner) so our university could transfer the money.
