REGISTRATION

   TEAM REGISTRATION

   ARBITRATOR REGISTRATION

Registration is accomplished by completion and submission of the registration form, which may be done at any time prior to the end of November. Registration is confirmed by payment of the registration fee. The registration fee must be paid until 13 January 2023 unless specific permission for later payment has been given by the Directors of the Moot. The registration starts with 15 September 2022 and closes on 24 November 2022.

The arbitrator registration is open and closes at the end of January or whenever capacity is reached. Arbitrators who already participated in the Vis Moot before, have already an arbitrator account and can use the “arbitrator login” instead of the “arbitrator registration” which is only meant for arbitrators who are new to the Vis Moot.

Details about the format of the 30th Vis Moot can be found in the press statement of the Vis Moot Directors

GETTIN’ ARTSY IN VIENNA – WE INTRODUCE YOU TO THE KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM

The Kunsthistorisches Museum introduces itself. A real eye-catcher both inside and outside. The museum was built as a home for the artworks of the Habsburg Family. Because we are always visiting, it already feels like our second home – we just get along really well with the residents. Mr. Caravaggio from the first floor for example is super charming and Vermeer with his Dutch accent… just hilarious. In the meantime, we have also become such good friends with Mr. Rubens that he has even revealed the secrets of his masterpieces to us. Come on our highlight tour and we’ll be happy to show you around.

Available dates: 

SUNDAY, April 2, 2023: 14:00 PM (2h tour)
WEDNESDAY, April 5, 2023: 11:00 AM (2h tour)
