To travel within Prague, you might want to use the public transportation. See the pages of Prague's public transit company for the traffic scheme and tickets. There are three subway ("metro") lines in Prague: A (green), B (yellow), C (red). The conference site is located near the metro station Dejvická on the A line, the tram stop Dejvická (trams 8 and 26), and the bus stop Dejvická. The conference building is a short walk through the university campus.
To get from the airport to the conference venue, take bus no. 119 from the airport to its final stop Nádraží Veleslavín, then take the metro A line to Dejvická. The journey takes about 30 minutes: use a 30 minute ticket (valid for 30 minutes after validating it in the bus). The city transport company provides more info about transport to/from the airport and sells tickets in the info centres at the airport.
To get to the city centre (Náměstí Republiky station), you can take the Airport Express bus. You will buy a 100 CZK ticket from the driver.
If you prefer taxi, use FIX Taxi or Taxi Praha, the official taxi services of the PRG airport. You can find taxi cars in front of the arrivals halls of both terminals.
If you get to Prague by train, you will probably arrive either at Hlavní nádraží (the Main Railway Station), or possibly at Nádraží Holešovice. To get to the conference venue, we recommend using public transportation. Both Hlavní nádraží and Nádraží Holešovice are on the metro C line. Go to Muzeum, the C/A transfer station; from there, take the A line to Dejvická.
Arriving by bus, you will probably arrive either at Florenc or at Černý most. Both stations are on the metro B line. Go to Můstek, the B/A transfer station; from there, take the A line to Dejvická.
