By Train

Poznań is located about half way between Warsaw (320 km) and Berlin (280 km), and there are good, frequent rail connections between those two cities and Poznań.

Check your connections using the timetables of the Polish Railways, or  German Railways.

By Air

Poznań's Ławica airport has frequent daily connections with Warsaw (LOT Polish Airlines), as well as with Vienna (LOT and Austrian Airlines), Copenhagen (SAS), Frankfurt/Main and Munich (LOT and Lufthansa), Cologne/Bonn (European Air Express), and Hannover, Dortmund and Zurich (Dauair).

The low-cost carriers Wizzair and Ryanair provide connections with London Luton and Stansted, respectively.

The Poznań airpot timetable is available here. However, please verify with the respective airlines whether the flights are available.


The złoty (abbreviated PLN or zł) is the official currency in Poland. The approximate exchange rate (10 Oct 2005) is 3.88 zloties to a Euro (or 3.20 zloties to a US Dollar). The latest exchange rates for all major currencies are available here.


Polish sockets are standard European sockets, with a voltage of 230 V. All visitors coming from countries using appliances/plugs that do not work with such sockets/voltages (especially American and British guests) are advised to bring adapters.


All European mobiles will work without problems. Polish operators use both of the two standard European GSM bands, 1800 and 900 MHz. Visitors coming from the US need a tri-band phone.

The international code for Poland is +48, the area code for Poznan is 61.


Polish weather can be quite changeable in April, although traditionally the conference has enjoyed fair, sunny weather with temperatures between 15 and 20 Centigrade during the day. Nights can be cooler. With worse luck, a raincoat and umbrella may find some use. Current forecast available here.
