Hyderabad President's Report

01 April, 2015

Dear Members and Delegates

I have just returned from a visit to the University of Hyderabad where I spent two days visiting the university, looking at the conference site and accommodation. PLanning is progressing well. Ananthakrishan and Rajiv have things well under control and are now in the process of putting together the conference program. With over 400 abstracts this is quite a big job so be patient if you are still waiting for confirmation.

The facilities look good with many seminar rooms all within easy walking distance of the main venue where the keynotes  and performances will be held. Speaking of walking, I would not advise ladies (or men) to wear high heels as the ground between venues is somewhat rough.

We visited a number of the hotels where you will be accommodated. They are first class and are offering very competitive rates including transport to and from the campus. Some of the hotels noted that some delegates had begun booking through internet sites rather than via the IFTR2015 website. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! PLEASE USE THE WEBSITE: http://www.iftr2015hyd.in/accommodation/.

This means you will have access to the transport offer to and from the hotel. If you book via another website, you will have to arrange your own transport!

Looking forward to seeing you in Hyderabd in July.

best wishes

Christopher Balme
