Welcome to Chennai – the home of culture and education, the center for trade and industry and your abode for the next couple of days. The Chennai Trade & Convention Center – your home for the conference is on the outskirts of the city. It is close to the airport and many major hotels. It is a sprawling 25-acre complex that is fully air-conditioned. The venue is disabled friendly with no steps to climb. Still if mobility is a problem we have wheelchairs and electric carts to move you. The organizing committee has even constructed new ladies washroom blocks at the venue.
We are planning a simple apolitical inaugural ceremony, which we promise to keep on time. Well begun would be half done! In all scientific sessions in the interest of time we are keeping the introductions short and no memento presentation ceremonies.
The Scientific Program is being streamlined, small gaps are being corrected and new changes made to complete it. There is hardly a topic left out of the discussions. The free paper sessions have all been published and have proved to be a Herculean task with the assignment and the appointment of chairpersons. The E posters are conveniently located and we are giving 3 extra prizes to acknowledge the hard work.
The Social Events are in place – the inaugural with a dance by the renowned Kalakshetra Group followed by music and dance, the one of a kind Banquet with “Shakti – the power of woman to keep you enthralled and finally the grand gala dinner on the beach– where else in Chennai. We have a fitness aerobic session by a gynecologist so bring your tracksuits for it on the 24th evening. A talk on Empowerment of Women – hear it to know about it. There will also be an attempt to create a Guinness World Record – watch out for more details – your chance to be part of the record. Even a Flash mob may break out at any opportune time.
We are ready for the conference and despite odds promise to try our best. We do not know areas we will shine in or areas we will be found lacking in but we will not be found short of trying. So welcome to AICOG 2015 And Look for the friendly organizers with their pretty flower lapel pins
