General Information


The Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, the Committee of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences and the Pro Physica Foundation are organizing a 5th edition of the conference on Biomolecules and Nanostructures.

Our mission is to provide an informal, creative atmosphere and highly interactive nature of this meeting. Previous editions of this conference have gained the enthusiastic feedback from participants. Now, we have 112 participants and hope to meet you all in Jaroszowice.

The key topics of the Conference cover current subjects on the crossroads of molecular biology, physics and chemistry, including biomolecules, nanostructures, nanomachines, biosensors.

The Conference will take place in a small village of Jaroszowice some 60 km away from Krakow - one of the oldest and the most famous Polish town, the historic capital city of Poland. The venue is a four star hotel and spa Jacek's Mill (Mlyn Jacka) . The place houses up to 110 participants. It offers all high-level facilities, nearby forests and mountains and the Skawa river with a newly built dam and a reservoir called Mucharz Lake (Jezioro Mucharskie).

Several excursions e.g. to Krakow, Wieliczka Salt Mine, Babia Góra mountain  and Auschwitz are available on request after the conference (please, contact the hotel reception desk).




How to get there

  • The nearest airport is the Krakow Airport
  • You can also get to Krakow from Warsaw by express trains (~ 3 h). Trains from Warsaw and Krakow to Zakopane stop also at Sucha Beskidzka, about 20 km from the venue.


Conference Buses

The buses will pick the group up on May 13th (Wednesday) at about 17:15 p.m. (adjusted to the 17:03 arrival of the train from Warsaw). The pick-up place is a small parking lot near the Andel's Hotel Cracow (GPS 50.065944, 19.945653). The lot can be accessed from the shopping mall connected to the Krakow Glowny train station by the exit toward the Old Town.
A group of our Helpers will travel by this train and lead the group from the platform through the train station and the shopping mall to the bus pick-up place. Another group of Helpers will wait at this place from 16:45. They will all display the conference banners (posters).
The buses can stop there only briefly, just for the pick-up.

After the conference, on May 17th (Sunday), we will arrange for a bus transportation from the venue to Krakow Glowny - Main Train Station, at 10:00 a.m. The journey takes about one hour.

Individual transfers are arranged for the invited speakers in both directions, if necessary, e.g. directly from/to the Krakow Airport.

Individual assistance with getting to Jaroszowice and back to Krakow is possible, if required. Please, contact the conference office ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).
