It will take place on the campus of the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) in Pashan area of the city. "The Ministry of Home Affairs organizes the conference every year. Earlier it was organized in Delhi, but after Modi became prime minister, it is being held in different cities every year," a senior police official said. Last year the conference was held at Kevadia in Gujarat, near the Statue of Unity.
