Every morning at 8.15 the special bus will leave from Zeylanda Street near conference hotels and will take the participants directly to the conference venue.


To get to our department from the hotels by public transport you need to take tram from: Most Teatralny to the final station: Sobieskiego and then you can have a 10-minute walk to the campus. You need to cross the railway and continue along the bicycle road (the path is marked by a small bicycle on the attached map). While walking you will pass near the construction site and afterwards the faculties of Political Science (right hand side) and Biology (left hand side). The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science (Coll. Mathematicum) is the second building on the left. It has black \ navy blue windows. The main entrance is at the back of the building, by the forest.
