Venue & Travel

The 7th International Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy and Optical Materials (IWASOM’2021) starts on Sunday, 11 July 2021, and finishes on Friday, 16 July 2021. The Workshop will be held at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Gdańsk. The Faculty is situated in the Campus of the University of Gdańsk in Gdańsk Przymorze (see the map of campus).

Gdańsk is the Polish maritime capital with the population nearing half a million. It is a large centre of economic life, science, culture, and a popular tourist destination. Lying on the Bay of Gdańsk and the southern cost of the Baltic Sea the city is a thousand years old. With its Hanseatic tradition, it has for ages played a major role in the commercial relationships between Northern and Western Europe on the one hand, and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe on the other hand. Today, Gdańsk is the capital of the Pomeranian province and an important administration centre.

For more information, see an excellent web page of Gdańsk and tourism information (see For Tourists).

The conference place can be easily reached by any means of transportation.

By plane

In recent years, Lech Wałęsa Airport in Gdańsk has become one of the main air transport centres in Poland. The airport provides numerous convenient connections to major European airports. Direct flights to Gdańsk can be checked here.

From Lech Walesa Airport in Gdańsk Rębiechowo you can take a train (best option), taxi or a bus.

Train timetable can be found on SKM web page. You start at Gdańsk Port Lotniczy and take a train in direction of Gdańsk Wrzeszcz (some trains go also to Gdańsk Główny). If you want to go directly to conference place you have to alight at Strzyża railway station (sixth stop). If you want to go to Gdańsk Główny station and you did not cought direct train, you will have to change train in Gdańsk Wrzeszcz (seventh stop), and take SKM in direction Gdańsk Główny (or Gdańsk Śródmieście). The SKM train tickets – you can buy the tickets in a ticket machine at the railway station or directly from the conductor at the head of the train.

Time table of buses is under links 110, 210, N3 (night bus). All buses go to Gdańsk Wrzeszcz. Bus tickets – you can buy the tickets in a bus or in a ticket machine at the bus stop.

By train

If you want to get to Gdańsk by train you should alight at the station Gdańsk Wrzeszcz or Gdańsk Oliwa. Then you should transfer to a SKM train and alight at the station Gdańsk Przymorze Uniwersytet Gdański. SKM train timetables are available on SKM web page. SKM train tickets – you can buy the tickets in a ticket machine at the railway station or directly from the conductor at the head of the train.
