Please refer to the list of participants for more details.
The proceedings of the Workshop will be published as a separate volume. The deadline for the contributions is August 15, 2008. It would be the most welcome if contributors prepared their papers before the Workshop and give us a copy in Bialowieza. This would speed up the review process and the editorial work.
The allowed size of the contributions is the following:
6 pages for the contributed talk
12 pages for the plenary talk
The format for the proceedings is 6x9 inch volume and the papers
should be submitted in LaTeX in the style required by the
publisher. The required macros are available at
the copyright transfer form is available at

From Warsaw to Bialowieza and back by the conference bus
The free conference bus will be available for the participants to go
from Warsaw to the Workshop site in Bialowieza. There will be the conference bus waiting on
Saturday, June 28, at the Physics Department, Warsaw University,
Hoza 69 (about 500 meters from Warsaw Central Railway Station). The bus
will depart for Bialowieza around 16:00 (4 P.M.). We shall also
arrange a free bus trip back from Bialowieza to Warsaw on Sunday,
July 6. The bus will depart not later than 7:00 (A.M.). It will
arrive to Warsaw about 11:00. The exact time of departure of this bus
will be announced during the Workshop.
From Warsaw Airport to Physics Department
The cheapest way to get to the Physics Department from the airport is to take regular city bus ,
line 175 at the exit of the air terminal (but watch out for pickpockets on the bus!). Ticket costs about 3 zl
(about 1 EUR) and can be bought at the newspaper stands at the airport terminal. One should get off at the
bus stop in front of the Mariott Hotel, opposite to the Central Railway Station (Warszawa Centralna).
From there it is short walk to the Physics Department. Members of the local organizing committee will be at
hand there. Please consult the map in
section travel guide.
It is also possible to take a taxi from the Airport to the Physics Department. This is more expensive
(approximately 50 zl~$25). In that case please take a taxi from the taxi stand and do not hire the taxi in the arrival
hall, directly from the driver, because they charge more and you should negotiate the price before the journey.
From Warsaw to Bialowieza by means of public transport
Bialowieza can also be reached by the combination of train and bus.
In this case one should take the train to Bialystok. From Bialystok
to Bialowieza one has to continue by bus (through Hajnowka). The Bus Station in
Bialystok is next to the railway station and one has to pass the
bridge over the rails. One can also reach Bialowieza by train to Hajnowka (change in Siedlce).
For train and buses schedules as well as
maps please check travel guide.
From Moscow to Bialowieza by means of public transport
There is very good train connection from Moscow to Grodno and then to
Bialystok. It may be cheaper and faster than connection through Warsaw.
Please read previous point for information about reaching Bialowieza
from Bialystok by bus.
Hotel in Warsaw
The organizers can book a hotel room in Warsaw, either before or
after the Workshop. Please let us know about that as soon as
possible. Prices range from 40 EUR to 100 EUR.
We would like to remind that the participants should pay in cash
the amount of 450/550 EUR (double room/single room), or equivalent in USD or PLN, upon arrival to Bialowieza.
Unfortunately we cannot
accept credit cards, personal checks, bank drafts or travelers checks. The
fee also covers the cost of the hotel and 3 meals daily during the
workshop as well as the social programme.
There is the cost of 200 EUR for each accompanying person.
