Venue

    The conference will be held in the Victor Menezes Convention Centre (VMCC), which is inside the IIT Bombay campus. The campus is located in Powai, Mumbai.





            
    Transportation from the Mumbai Airport

    Mumbai's airport (Airport Code: BOM) is called Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA). There are two terminals namely Domestic and International.

    The most convenient way to reach the conference venue, as well as nearby hotels, is by a taxi. All airport terminals have prominent taxi counters, where government-operated taxis, as well as private fleet taxis can be rented. Reputable private fleet taxi companies include Meru, Tab cabs, and Mega cabs. Government operated air-conditioned taxis "coolcabs" can also be rented from airport terminals.

    You can go to any of the above taxi counters, and ask for a pre-paid taxi to your destination. If you are going straight to the conference venue, you can ask for "IIT at Powai". If you are going to a hotel, you can provide the address and locality of the hotel from your hotel confirmation. After paying the pre-paid amount, collect the receipt, exit the airport, and follow signs to the taxi service you have rented. Often, the pre-paid receipt mentions the licence plate of the specific taxi assigned to you. The taxi ride from the airport to IIT Bombay will take approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the traffic conditions.

    Transportation from the railway station

    If you are arriving by train, you can take a taxi or an auto-rickshaw to IIT at Powai.

    Security at the IIT gate

    You may be asked to present an identification document with your photograph (passport / identity card issued by your organization / driving licence etc.) at the Main Gate, while entering the campus. If you are carrying a laptop, you need to obtain a temporary gate pass as part of IIT Bombay security regulations.
