|Around the venue|
The Lepton Photon 2011's venue is the Tata Institute. The picturesque campus is located at the southern tip of Mumbai city, flanked by the Arabian sea.
Located inside a military and naval residential areas, the venue is away from the hustle and bustle of the mega city. For the same reason, movement of foreigners outside the venue is restricted to the main road that leads up to the Tata Institute.
All the listed hotels are located outside the restricted area, but within about 6km from the venue. The area is the main tourist district of the city, and has all that tourists look forward to - art-deco areas, walk-around tours, heritage buildings, fine dining, popular bars and restaurants, popular hangouts, handicraft showrooms, curio shops, foreign exchange shops, sea side promenades.

|Mumbai weather around LP11 dates|
Mumbai has a tropical climate with moderate temperatures throughout the year. Its coastal location ensures it is free from the blistering summer heat experienced by most of central and south india and the northern plains. Summer in Mumbai is sunny and humid. The temperature follows a bipolar distribution with the hottest months being May (26-33 ° C) and October (23-33 ° C). By mid-June the monsoon breezes bring down temperatures and provide welcome rain after a continuous 8-month spell of sunshine lasting from the previous October. Heavy rains can be expected from mid-June to early August. The late monsoon, from mid-August to mid-September, has the coolest day temperatures of the year (29 ° C) and features a sharp drop in precipitation leading to breezy cloudy days during which it is typically enjoyable to be outdoors. Winters are sunny and pleasant but quite warm, with day temperatures going up to 32 ° C.
Historical precipitation data (sourced from Weather Underground) reveal that the daily rainfall in Mumbai on certain representative dates, averaged over the last seven years, is: July 1: 25mm, August 1: 38mm, August 22: 4mm, August 27: 6mm. The last two dates are the start and end of Lepton Photon 2011. This shows the sharp fall-off of precipitation through the middle of August. It may be noted that monthly precipitation figures only show a slight net reduction in rainfall in August compared to July, but do not make manifest the significant fall-off in precipitation towards the end of the month.
Registered participants and registered accompanying persons will be given an umbrella each.
|Places near Mumbai|
|Late monsoon is a favourite season for outdoors activities. Groups of trekkers organise day or weekend trips to lakes and rivers or just in the hills around Mumbai. The sight and smell of freshly grown grass is most enjoyable as is the sight of the occasional small waterfall or rivulet. In interior regions of India the scenario is even more delightful as the baking hot summer (day temperatures in a place like Aurangabad can go to 38 or 40 degrees) is tempered from late June by the rainfall, and the arid brown earth miraculously transforms to green. Those with just a day on hand may want to stroll in the verdant Sanjay Gandhi National Park, an hour's from south Mumbai where Lepton-Photon 2011 will be held. Given a weekend to spare, one can visit the hill stations of Matheran (1.5 hours from Mumbai by train or road) or Lonavala and Khandala (2.5 - 3.5 hours from Mumbai by train or road). The train journey to the latter can be booked in advance and is quite comfortable. A longer trip, very highly recommended, would be to the legendary caves of Ajanta and Ellora (World Heritage sites near Aurangabad, a short flight or an overnight train journey from Mumbai).|
The symposium dates fall in the middle of a festive season. On 21 August is "Janmashtami" one of the most popular of the festivals of India. It celebrates the birth of Krishna, one of the Hindu dieties. People of Mumbai celebrate this festival in a grand and unique way out on the streets. So if you are here on 21 August, you can enjoy the spectacle on one of the streets nearby the hotel.

|Credit Card issues and carification|
Some participants had problems while paying their fee with credit cards. The information here is to help address the questions that some may have about credit cards when they are here. We asked our Bank for clarifications. Here it is:
We as organizers can get from our bank an abbreviated reason for credit card transaction failures. Of those reasons, all but one are connected to particular card (over limit, expired, wrong password, etc). Such issues can cause problems when used at card swipe points, too.
There is one reason that affected come card holders just because their card shared an Issuer Identification Number (IIN, a.k.a. BIN) with many other cards that were caught in risky/fraudulent online transctions. We understand the consternation of some participants who were informed such a reason.
Our bank has clarified that such blocking is only for online transactions and IVR (interactive voice response) transactions.
It will not affect card swipe transactions. So, some participants who were informed that their cards were blocked because of their card's BIN, may use their cards normally while in India. Also, we are arranging for participants to pay fee by credit card at the registration desk.
Mains AC power in India is 220V/50Hz. There are two kinds of power sockets commonly available
