Crazy but unusable Java-based fly-by! :-)

CERN isn't far from the airport by car or taxi, but it isn't reasonable 
walking distance, and you need to change buses to get to CERN: bus 10, then 
bus 9:


The route overview in English:


(It also looks like bus 28 runs from the airport to Meyrin - Hôpital-La Tour, 
and that's more or less walking distance. Interestingly, the route planner at 
http://tpg.hafas.de/bin/tp/query.exe/en suggests combining bus 28 with bus Y. 
I always used to take the 10/9 combination, myself.)

As for the exact location of the conference, Benedikt pointed out the building 
locations previously, and if you visit the building search page 
(http://building.web.cern.ch/building/) and search for building 40, you'll 
see the conference location, the hostels (buildings 38 and 39) and the 
restaurant (restaurant 1, building 500/501). The reception, also listed on 
that page, is building 33.
