Blueprints Beyond the Standard Model

Blueprints Beyond the Standard Model will be held in the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai. TIFR is at the extreme western end of the Homi Bhabha Road, which is in Navy Nagar, Colaba. The institute is on the left hand side of the road as you come down it, and the guest house is in the campus on the right. Many of you will stay at the Fariyas hotel.

Getting to TIFR is easy. You need to get to the end of “Homi Bhabha Road in New Navy Nagar” to get to TIFR. To get to Fariyas, ask for “Fariyas Hotel near Colaba Market”. There is a prepaid taxi booth inside the terminal after you exit customs. Pay in cash/card and they will give you a receipt with the number of your taxi. Follow the signs or ask any security guard for help if needed. Another convenient option is to use Uber. Your Uber app should work here seamlessly. In India you can also pay in cash for Uber at the end of the ride. If using a regular black and yellow taxicab, the fare from the airport should be about INR 700-1000. From the Fariyas hotel to TIFR, it should be about INR 50. Depending on traffic or surcharges past midnight it can be a bit more.

The lectures will be held in the lecture hall AG66 on the ground floor of the A block of the institute building. The lecture hall for the talks is equipped with an overhead projector.

Mumbai never gets very cold. At the time of the workshop the temperature is expected to be in the high 20's. However, be prepared for significantly lower temperatures inside the lecture rooms due to the air conditioning in the institute. Rain is very unlikely.
