Arrangements have been made with some good hotels within a short distance from the conference venue. Some special rates have been negotiated for the conference delegates. There will be arrangements to transfer the delegates from the place of accommodation to TIFR and back.

A pdf file will be created on filling up the option for hotel and will be sent to the participant. The hotel needs credit card number for surety. The participant is required to fill in the credit card detail and should send it to the organisers either through fax at number +91.22.2278.2345 or by email to Please note that online request can be made by already registered participants after login.
