Welcome to the Website of the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society (ALWS)

We regret to inform you that we have to cancel this year’s Wittgenstein Symposium and the Summer School.

We have observed the easing of regulations regarding COVID-19 for some time now and did not want to give up hope for this summer. But as you know, both, symposium and summer school, are international events. Significantly more than half of the participants registered this year would have to come to Austria from various countries, many from overseas. Despite the slow easing of restrictions regarding travel in Austria and Germany, it does not seem feasible to hold the symposium. Particularly because its internationality increases the risk of infection. We cannot and do not want to take that risk.
