The best way of travelling in Kyiv is taxi. If you stay in the hotel located in the center of Kyiv, the taxi to the conference site will cost up to 5 USD.

If you prefer to use public transport (bus, trolleybus, subway), the easiest way to get to the conference is to use subway to reach the subway station "Lybidska" and then take the bus #38 or 84 to the "Amurska ploscha" station.

The same buses will convey you to the conference site from Moscow square and "Mir" hotel (see the map).
