The workshop itself will take place at the PPISR campus, Bidalur. The corresponding guesthouse is also within this campus. Details for getting here are at the PPISR website. In the event that for one reason or another the pickup arrangement fails, you will be able to navigate your way there from the instructions given at this web-site.

Those of you who are at the Academy guesthouse (marked as Academy Fellows Residence on the map) can also locate it from here. It is about 12 kilometers from the City railway station. If you are staying here and are flying into Bangalore, you can take a bus to Mehkri circle and find your way from there following the map.

For those of you who are staying at the Indian Institute of Science guesthouse, directions can be found at the IISc website.

By email we have already communicated with all of you of the pick-up arrangements

Important information for participants who will be housed at Jalahalli: Those who are staying in Jalahalli and are arriving by surface transport make kindly take an autorickshaw and make their way to the Academy guesthouse. It is about 15 km from the city railway station and the rate by the meter is Rs. 7/km. Since it is somewhat remote, the autorickshaw driver may charge you extra. Please bear with it. If you get lost in the neighbourhood there, you can call one of our volunteers who will be standing by and will be able to rescue you if you are lost within a radius of about a km or so.
