You are encouraged to spend some time after the meeting in Poznan or wider Poland.
This note from Al Harris, regarding Poznan/Poland:

From Bill Merline, regarding travel to Poznan:
Airfares between European cities often seem to be about US$ 150-250, so it may
pay to check airfares from the US to some other European cities and then buy
a separate ticket to Poznan. For example, there are often cheap fares to one
or two European cities, while it is much more expensive to others. Try, in
addition to the above, Milan, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Rome, Berlin,
Brussels, Hamburg, or others.
From Lance Benner, regarding flights from US to Poznan:
Also, for people willing to transfer among airports, I found that
Ryanair flies from London/Stansted directly to Poznan.
Thus, one could fly from any US airports to London/Heathrow,
transfer to Stansted, and get to Poznan in only two hops.
From Agnieszka Kryszczynska, commenting on use of Ryanair from London:
Ryanair is a cheap airline (also see Wizz Air), but sometimes they change
hours of departure. If you don't care about time or you are not afraid
of missing the next flight, it is OK. But I never fly with such airlines
to or from the America(s).
