The conference would be held from 10 am to evening 5 pm. From 5 pm to 6 pm, literary activities would be held at LB Stadium and from 6 pm to 10 pm Shistya dance performances, folk dances would be organised.
On accommodation of the delegates, the Vice-Chancellor said for VIP delegates invited by Telangana government, including Padma Sri, Gnanpith and Sahitya Academi awardees, we would arrange vehicles. For other delegates, mini buses would be arranged for pick-up and drop from the accommodation centres to the venues of the conference.
Transportation and accommodation will be taken care by the Tourism department. Satyanarayana the services of volunteers who gave their best at the recent Global Entrepreneurship Summit would be utilised for the hospitality of delegates. These volunteers were trained by reputed hotel management institutions and hotels.
