The most likely way to Dresden, from outside Europe, will be to fly to Frankfurt - one of the world's major airline hubs - then take a short connecting flight to Dresden. The German airline, Lufthansa, probably offers reasonable prices for both from most parts of the world.
There are also direct flights into Dresden-Klotzsche from various other European cities and the Mediterranean/North Africa region - see: www.dresden-airport.de (in German, English, Polish and Czech).
To get from the airport in Dresden, the best way is by the S-Bahn (underground railway) which is quick and cheap). Representatives from the Congress organisers will be on hand to help as much as possible.
From within Europe there are also budget airlines, such as EasyJet and RyanAir, flying to Berlin (from at least 24 European airports) where you can take a 2 hour 11 minute direct train to Dresden. There are also several budget flights to Prague, in the Czech Republic, which is a little closer, and several other German cities with rail links to Dresden.
