Check on Google Maps!We provide a simple route on Google Maps.

By air
Warsaw's Fryderyk Chopin Airport is conveniently located 10 km from the city centre. All regular and low cost flights bound for Warsaw land at the F. Chopin airport.
You can get to the conference place by bus number 175 which goes directly to the main entrance of the Central Campus of the University, or you can take a taxi. There is a place in front of the arrival hall where a taxi can be ordered. Three taxi companies are licensed to operate at the airport: MPT Taxi (phone: 2219191), Sawa Taxi (phone: 226444444), and Merc Taxi (phone: 226777777). The cost (day fare) of the taxi to the center is about 40-50 zlotys. Bus fare is 2.40 zlotys; it is wise to buy a ticket in advance, e.g. at a newspaper stand at the airport. If you are willing to take a cab it is advisable to use one of the three licensed companies. Do not take a taxi offered by a stranger.
By train
There are direct train connections with many European cities. You can check your train on the Polish Railways web page. The main railway station, Warszawa Centralna, is located in the heart of the city.
You can reach the conference place using public transport: bus number 175 heading to PL.PILSUDSKIEGO stops right at the main entrance of the University Campus. If you need a taxi, choose one that belongs to a licensed company (see above).
By coach
There are two main bus terminals: Warszawa Zachodnia and Warszawa Stadion. Many long distance buses stop also in front of the Cental Railway Station (see above). There are regular connections with many European destinations.
By car
Warsaw is located in the central part of Poland. You can plan your route e.g. with ViaMichelin, and many others. We generally do not advise to travel by car since Warsaw is quite jammed. It is rather hard to move around by car in rush hours and finding parking in downtown may be a serious problem. Be advised that the University Campus and surrounding area is partly closed for traffic.
The conference is organized by the University of Warsaw and is the next in the series of biennial meetings on Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo methods: Las Vegas, USA (1994), Salzburg, Austria (1996), Claremont, USA (1998), Hong Kong (2000), Singapore (2002), Juan-Les-Pins, France (2004), Ulm, Germany (2006) and Montréal, Canada (2008).
Under the honorary patronage of the Mayor of Warsaw, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz.
