From the airport
You can get to/from the airport by train or shuttle. Train is slightly faster and slightly more expensive, and both services are very smooth. You can find more info here: https://www.milanomalpensa-airport.com/en/from-to
To get the bus, you can simply get a ticket as soon as you land; to get the train you will find vending machines or touchpoints for your contactless card as soon as you reach the train platform.
Since the 15 July 2019 new prices for public transport are in effect. The short story is that every journey, no matter how many transfers you do, will cost you 2 Euros. You can buy 10-tickets cards (18€) or weekly passes (17€) for a discount.
The system is zone-based, all of the conference will happen in the main central zone, which covers all of the city of Milan and neighboring cities. You can read everything about this new system here: https://nuovosistematariffario.atm.it/en/
All metro stations are equipped with contactless readers, just hold your credit card and you will be issued a single-journey regular ticket. Important: Make sure you keep your ticket to get out of the metro station.
Note: ATM is the name of the public transport in Milan. What the rest of the world calls ATM is called "Bancomat" in Milan.
Public transport is much better in Milan than in a typical italian city. On a mobile phone, you could use many application which provide real-time updates. Here are some examples:
