Austrian participants in addition to the host, Federal Chancellor Wolfgang Schüssel, include Federal President Heinz Fischer and Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik. Numerous intellectuals and artists are also taking part, such as Oliviero Toscani, Leon de Winter, Martin Kušej, Gilles Kepel, Dominique Moïsi, Slavenka Drakulić, Franzobel, Mario Monti, Bronislaw Geremek, Mark Leonard, Peter Ruzicka und Jürgen Flimm, to name but a few.

The event is being co-organised by the Federal Chancellery, the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee.
