The conference will take place on the ground floor of the Simion Stoilow Mathematics Institute of the Romanian Academy, in the "Miron Nicolescu" conference hall.

Getting around

Participants arriving at the Henri Coanda International Aiport can take bus 783 or can order a taxi to The Roman Plaza ("Piata Romana"), which is located within walking distance of IMAR. Take the escalator one floor down in the arrivals hall to reach airport bus stop, where you can get a bus card at the ticket counter. You can call a taxi using the ticketing machines in the arrivals hall.

Participants arriving at Bucharest's North Railway Station ("Gara de Nord") can take the subway to The Roman Plaza ("Piata Romana"). Subway tickets can be bought inside each subway station.

The most convenient means of public transport in Bucharest is the subway (see map); currently, there is no subway line from the airport to the city center.
