Travel instructions Edit

  • If you're travelling by flight, please retain your onward boarding pass, and submit it to a concerned person at the event.
  • Ola/Uber or any other travel service can be used to reach to the hotel from the arrival points.
  • If you're arriving almost at the same time with other participants, you will be informed accordingly. You may come together to the hotel.
  • For travel between the venue and accommodation, cabs will be used. This option has been opted because hiring a mini-bus for three days is costing too much (It was said to be around ₹25,000, which is way too high, as this can be done using cabs within ₹10,000).
  • For easy coordination and to avoid confusion, the participants are advised to travel in groups of three, however, there is no compulsion.
  • Since we intend to start the sessions by 8:30 am, you're advised to start from the hotel by 8:00 am. The distance between hotel and venue is 3.5 km, it roughly takes around 10 min, and it is a 10 min walk from the university main-gate to the workshop location.
