The conference will be held on the main campus of the University of Warsaw. The map address is Krakowskie Przedmieście 26/28, 00-926 Warsaw. Given the number of accommodation options in a city the size of Warsaw, we recommend using services such as Trivago.com, Booking.com, or Airbnb. Consult the page with the conference venue information to gauge how close you want to be staying.
Please note that the first days of May are holidays in Poland. This means that buses, trams, and the subway circulate somewhat less frequently, but the city’s public transport system nonetheless offers very efficient transportation possibilities.
