The conference venue
The conference will take place in the Banach Center which is a part of the Mathematical Institute of The Polish Academy of Sciences and is located at Śniadeckich 8 in Warsaw, tel.: +48 22 5228100. The Conference room 321/322 is located on the third floor. You can take an elevator or the stairs. For directions see below. If you are curious about the name of the street Śniadeckich, this means the Śniadeckis and refers to the Śniadeckis brothers Jan Śniadecki and Jędrzej Śniadecki.

The conference venue hosts the Central Mathematical Library which is located on the second floor. The library invites you to have a look at its collection and use the computers there. When entering the library, please write your name and affiliation in the notebook at the front desk.

Directions: F. Chopin Airport (Okęcie) to the conference venue (and MDM hotel)

  • By taxi. Have the exact address (given above) possibly written down because of different pronounciation and follow the hints here. Mon - Sat, 6-22: it should be around 30-35PLN. Sundays or nights +50%. About 15-20 min.
  • By bus. Total about 25-35 min., 4.40PLN but you need pay attention as to where to get off. Buy a ticket at a newsstand or a machine. The ticket should be for zone 1 of type "single", it is 4.40PLN. Take the bus line 188 (direction “Gocławek Wschodni”) and get off at the bus stop “Metro Politechnika”. Walk for about 550 m to the Institute of Mathematics (see here).
Directions: F. Chopin Airport (Okęcie) to Novotel and Metropol hotels

  • By taxi. Have the exact address (given above) possibly written down because of different pronounciation and follow the hints here. Mon - Sat, 6-22: it should be around 30-40PLN. Sundays or nights +50%. About 15-20 min.

The ticket should be for zone 1 of type "single", it is 4.40PLN. Take the bus line 175 (direction “Pl. Piłsudzkiego”)and get off at the bus stop “Centrum”. This is one stop after "Central Railway Station" which should be announced in English. Walk less than 100m to the hotels possibly taking the underground passage. (see here).
Directions: Warszawa Centralna or Warsawa Śródmieście train station to the Academy (guest rooms and the conference venue) and some hotels

  • A tricky thing will be to get out from Warszawa Centralna through the right undrepass at the corner of Al. Jerozolimskie and E. Plater (zoom out the Street view to see the map). Watch for E. Plater signs, however there are several such exits, try taking the most southern. Anyway, going from any of the two stations you need to find yourself on the southern side of Aleje Jerozolimskie. Three underground passages are at T. Chałubińskiego Street, at E. Plater Street and at Marszałkowska Street. If you are using a map a good point of reference is the Palace of Culture and Science which is on the other (northern) side of Aleje Jerozlimskie like the train stations.
  • Walking
  • By bus Remove the mouse cursor from the map to see the map completely, the thin green line on the map does not indicate a suggested way, "Do" is your destination, gray line is the walking part of the trip
    • The directions below are from W-Wa Centralna train station. To reach the bus stop follow the signs at the train station. For W-Wa Śródmieście take the same bus but just one stop, called Centrum 01, later. It is located at the southeastern corner of Aleje Jerozolimskie and Marszalkowska.
    • MDM Hotel Take the bus line 131 or 501 and get off at the bus stop “Pl. Konstytucji” - see here.
    • Sport and Recreation Center Take the bus line 131 and get off at the bus stop “DS Riviera”. Walk for abut 200 m to the hotel - see here.
    • Guest rooms/appartments of the Mathematical Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences Take the bus line 131 or 501 and get off at the bus stop “Pl. Konstytucji”. Walk for about 150 m - see here.
The Modlin airport

The Modlin Airport is closed due to technical problems of the runway. It looks like it will not be reopened for the conference. If it reopens, we will place appropriate directions here.
