Often referred to as 'Jewel of the East Coast' and as 'The City of Destiny', Visakhapatnam is ensconced between the hills of the Eastern Ghats and the coast of the Bay of Bengal. The city is home to the oldest shipyard, the only natural harbour on the east coast of India, Visakhapatnam Port, Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, the Indian Navy's Eastern Command and South Coast Railway zone. A cosmopolitan & vibrant city with people living in perfect harmony, Visakhapatnam is well connected to the rest of the world by road, rail, and air. Situated in the heart of Andhra Pradesh, the city is a major tourist destination and is particularly famous for its serene landscape, lovely beaches, the Eastern Ghats, wildlife sanctuaries, as well as a rich culture. Located a short distance away from Visakhapatnam is Araku Valley, a hill station replete with gushing waterfalls, lush green gardens and challenging trekking trails, one of the prime attractions of this district. Nestled amidst the Ananthagiri Hills in Araku Valley, the Borra Caves are over thousands of years old and are the biggest among all the caves found in India.

We look forward to welcoming you & your loved ones to ASICON 2023. A ‘Scientific Extravaganza’ coupled with an ‘away from it all’ Fellowship & Relaxation awaits you & your loved ones, like never before!

Warm personal regards.
