You can find some information on getting around in Zurich here.
The conference venue is next to tram stop Kantonsschule, which is a 10-minute walk or a short tram ride away from station Stadelhofen. Day passes for trams, busses and trains within the city (zone 110) cost CHF 8.80 and are available at ZVV ticket machines.
The conference venue is located at University of Zurich's city campus and there are many hotels and AirBnBs close by. (Cheaper) accommodation further away from the city center can easily be reached by Zurich's dense urban public transport network. Hotels, hostels etc. can be found on the Zürich Tourism website.
