The meeting is being organized at Manipal University. The seed for its magnificent growth was sown way back in 1953 with the flagship Kasturba Medical College. Today it has 24 professional institutions of medicine, engineering, management and humanities.

The University is making a strong headway in research as well. The University is home to 28,000 students pursuing undergraduate and post graduate programs in diverse subjects. Manipal weather is quite pleasant during this period and the expected day time temperature is between 24-28 C. Manipal is well connected to the chief Indian cities by road, rail and air. There are two main cities close to Manipal that serve as entry points – Udupi via rail and Mangalore via air. Udupi is 5 km from Manipal and Mangalore is 65 km away.
