It is our pledge to conduct it in a manner unprecedented. Preparations are already underway to make sure we provide with an experience par excellence.

A large number of National and International faculty have confirmed their participation and that will be the highlight of the meeting.

It is located at Koteshwar, which is at a distance of 30km from Udupi as well as Manipal, and about 10 km from Kundapur.

Do offer us this opportunity to showcase our hospitality, he said.
