MNM 2017 will be held in the grand new Unified Campus of Bose Institute, located at
the EN Block of Sector V, Salt Lake City, Kolkata. The new BI Campus is very well
equipped to have every affair related to MNM 2017 (all talks, posters, exhibitors and
refreshments) under a single roof. The scientific sessions would be conducted across
two Discussion Rooms, each having capacity to accommodate a 120-strong audience,
four Discussion Rooms, each having capacity to accommodate a 60-strong audience,
plus the main auditorium having a sitting capacity of 240.
The new BI Campus is located at the College More four-way junction, opposite to IBM
and Institute of Engineering and Management. Itís only a few minutesí walk from the
WIPRO Bus Stop/Nabadiganta flyover on the Salt Lake Bypass (see Google Map). It is
also in the close proximity of the East Calcutta Wetland which is designated a "wetland
of international importance" under the Ramsar Convention.
There are many excellent hotels, shopping malls, and restaurants in this area. Being
located at the heart of the Technologies-hub of expanding Kolkata, it is one of the
costliest locales of the city. However, remaining true to the City of Joy epithet, Sector V,
like every other part of Kolkata, provides ample options to suffice every need fitting
every kind of budget. A little travel down to the Bidhannagar/Ultadanga area further
widens the spectrum of options. Due to its proximity to the Eastern Metropolitan
Bypass (which can be accessed via the Salt Lake Bypass), the Sector V area has easy
transport links to the Dharmatala / Esplanade area, the real Kolkata downtown with all
its old-world grandeur.
