The BIOMA conference will be held at the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School in Ljubljana, Slovenia.


Ljubljana is situated in the heart of Slovenia, 298 metres above sea level.

Its convenient position, between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, makes it possible to leave Ljubljana in a spring morning, go skiing in the Alps and be swimming in the Adriatic later in in the afternoon.

How to get to LJUBLJANA?

Ljubljana lies at the junction of important travel routes leading from northern Europe to the Adriatic, and from western Europe to the East, the Balkans and the Middle East.

It is easily accessible: and is thus directly connected with all major European cities.

As the train brings you into the heart of the city centre, the major sights are only a stone's throw away.

The Ljubljana airport, Brnik, is located 23 kilometres to the north-west of the city centre, towards Gorenjska. It is connected, with regular and charter flights, to numerous cities in Europe and other continents.

How to get to the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School / Jožef Stefan Institute by local transportation?

In Ljubljana the local transportation is performed by busses (Ljubljanski potniški promet). The fee is paid at the bus front door entrance either in cash (300 SIT, no money return) or with tokens that can be purchased in tobacco shops and post offices (190 SIT). You can also buy the Ljubljana Tourist Card which costs 3000 SIT and is valid 72 hours. With this card you have free access to all local buses, free bike-renting, free entrance to some museums, and many other discounts.

There is a bus stop in front of the main bus station. Take the bus No. 9, direction Trnovo, get off at the second bus stop (in front of the book store) and change to the line No. 1 (direction Mestni log) or 6 (direction Dolgi most). We recommend to take bus No. 1, as it stops right in front of the entrance to the Jožef Stefan Institute on Jadranska cesta (get off at 5th bus stop). The bus No.6 stops (5th bus stop) on Tržaška cesta about 5 minutes walking distance from the Institute (cross the main street at traffic lights and walk along Jadranska cesta).
