Transportation inside Warsaw:
There are several interesting lunch places within 5-10 minutes walk from the conference venue. Some of them are not very big and may have difficulty to accommodate larger groups at the same table. If you are eating with a larger group, we recommend that you consider Food Hall at Elektrownia Powiśle, a food area hosting a dozen of diverse restaurants which share a common space with many large tables. All the restaurants in the area may become packed around 12:30, hence it would be advisable to take a place promptly after the morning session.
