Logistics

We hope you are all set to attend the Mysore Park Workshop on Computer Vision. Here is some
logistical information you will need for your trip.

Arrangements have been made for your airport transfers in Bangalore per your arrival/departure details.
As you exit the arrivals hall at the Bangalore International Airport (BIA), please expect some amount of
confusion as there will be several drivers carrying placards with people’s names on them. Please look for
a person carrying a placard with your name on it. This person will guide you to your driver who will take
you to the hotel to rest until it is time to board the Bus to Mysore. If you have any problems locating the
person at the arrivals lounge please contact Mr. Manish on his hand phone # +919900061323
