Local transport

We will arrange a taxi to meet you at the airport/station on your arrival. Please ensure that you send us your arrival/departure information, including flight/train numbers.

  • If you arrive at the airport, look for the driver holding a board saying "Chennai Mathematical Institute" with the CMI logo when you exit from the arrival area. Please note that there is (still!) a lot of construction going on in the parking area of the airport, so it is a bit messy outside the main terminal area. In particular, you may have to walk a bit along the outside corridor before you find the place where all the taxi drivers wait with boards. Follow the crowd!

  • If you arrive by train at Chennai Central, the driver will stand with a board saying "Chennai Mathematical Institute" with the CMI logo near the Higginbothams Book Stall, located at the corner of one of the main entrance halls. If you arrive by train at Chennai Egmore, look for the driver at the Adyar Ananda Bhavan restaurant located within the station.

In case you need to get to the hotel on your own, it is located just before the Navalur toll plaza on Old Mahabalipuram Road (also known as Rajiv Gandhi Salai and, informally, the IT Highway).

CMI will organise transport to/from the hotel to the Institute during the workshop. The bus from the hotel to CMI will leave at 08:45 a.m. The banquet will be on Friday, January 28, and will be held in the same hotel.

There will also be transport from IMSc to CMI and back for participants who are staying at home or elsewhere. The bus/van will leave IMSc at 08:15 am and return after the last talk of the day.


  • Funding for travel and accommodation is available to researchers in France via the ARCUS program. Please contact Paul Gastin for more details.

  • For other participants, local expenses will be funded by CMI through the grant from Tata Consultancy Services.
