We expect to fund the accommodation of all invited participants either in a Guest House or in one of the hotels listed below (on a shared basis in the case of Category A hotels). Invited participants from outside India will receive an Accommodation Preference Form, which they can fill and return so as to enable the organizers to make a booking for them or to communicate that they will make their own booking. If the participants choose to make their own bookings, then they may ask for the special rate we have secured in some cases (as indicated below) or use travel websites such as or, which may sometimes offer a better rate than this special rate.
