The simplest way to get to conference hotels and conference venue from Lublin Railway Station is to take busses no. 13 or no. 30.
  • BUS no. 13 (stop "Dworzec Gł. PKP 02", direction "Paderewskiego") - get off at stop "Ogród Saski 03" (close to the hotels "Mercure", "Campanile" and Conference Venue, the duration of travel is 15-20 minutes) see timetable
  • BUS no. 30 (stop "Dworzec Gł. PKP 02", direction "Zbożowa") - get off at stop "Ogród Saski 03" (close to the hotels "Mercure", "Campanile" and Conference Venue, the duration of travel is 10-12 minutes) see timetable
It is also possible to take a taxi. The price is about PLN 20 (about 4.70 EUR).
Below is the list of preferred carriers:
  • Radio Taxi Four (Tel. 196-88,81 444 44 44 44)
  • MPT "Radio-Taxi 919" (tel. 191-91,81 744 16 66)
  • TAXI BUTT (Tel. 81 511 11 11 11)
  • Radio Damel Taxi (Tel. 196-26,191-99)
We strongly recommend to choose only marked taxi.


  1. The Lublin Airport is located about 10 km SE of Lublin. Among flights there are everyday Lufthansa connection to Munich, Ryanair connections to London and Dublin, and LOT connection to Tel Aviv.
  2. There are the following options to get to the city from the Lublin airport:
    • by buses - MPK and Przewozy24.pl
    • by taxi - the most convinient way, the price is less than 15 Euro
      Taxi services at the airport are provided by the licensed taxi company Damel

      There is no taxi rank in front of the terminal building. A passenger willing to travel by a recommended taxi service from the airport is requested to approach the desk with a paging system inside the terminal. Your driver will be called in immediately.
  3. There are frequent direct trains from Warsaw to Lublin. It is best to use the on-line rail route planner (leaving 'Warszawa Centralna' or 'Warszawa Lot. Chopina' arriving 'Lublin').
  4. The conference organizers provide the direct mini-bus transport from/to Warsaw Chopin Airport.

Busses from/to Warsaw Chopin airport

The organizers of PPAM 2017 will provide the bus transport between Warsaw Chopin Airport and Lublin according to the following schedule (see details in the PDF file):

  1. Saturday Sept. 9 from Airport
    • 13:30
    • 21:00
  2. Sunday Sept. 10 from Airport
    • 14:30
    • 17:45
  3. Wednesday Sept. 13 from the conference venue to Airport
    • 14:00 bus for approx. 50 passengers

The organizers will wait for participants in the arrival hall, Exit 2

PPAM 2017


Lublin, Poland,
September 10-13, 2017

The PPAM 2017 conference, twelfth in a series, will cover topics in parallel and distributed computing, including theory and applications, as well as applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms, and software tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization of modern parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as on large-scale applications, including big data and machine learning problems.

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences series. In 2017 the PPAM conference will take place in Lublin, the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, an academic and cultural centre, proud of its rich history and picturesque Old Town.

The PPAM 2017 conference is organized by Czestochowa University of Technology together with Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin, under the patronage of Committee of Informatics of Polish Academy of Sciences, in technical cooperation with IEEE Computer Society and ICT COST Action IC1305 "Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS)".

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Parallel/distributed architectures, enabling technologies
  • Cluster and cloud computing
  • Multi-core and many-core parallel computing, GPU computing
  • Heterogeneous/hybrid computing and accelerators
  • Parallel/distributed algorithms: numerical and non-numerical
  • Scheduling, mapping, load balancing
  • Performance analysis and prediction
  • Performance issues on various types of parallel systems
  • Autotuning: methods, tools, and applications
  • Power and energy aspects of computation
  • Parallel/distributed programming
  • Tools and environments for parallel/distributed computing
  • Security and dependability in parallel/distributed environments
  • HPC numerical linear algebra
  • HPC methods of solving differential equations
  • Evolutionary computing, meta-heuristics and neural networks
  • Machine learning and HPC
  • HPC interval analysis
  • Applied Computing in mechanics, material processing, biology and medicine, physics, chemistry, business, environmental modeling, etc.
