ISMIR 2022 will feature the following events as a part of its social program. In addition the following events, we plan to organize an informal meet-up/jam session and suggest several places for social gatherings. The social program events listed below are available only to the in-person participants of the conference.
ISMIR 2022 Welcome Reception
Dec 5, 2022 (Mon), 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm at Satish Dhawan Auditorium, IISc; 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm, Main Guest House Lawns, IISc, Bengaluru
Given that the conference has returned to a hybrid format after two virtual-only editions, the welcome reception on the Main Guest House lawns is planned to encourage in-person interactions among the seasoned and new ISMIR participants after a brief (long?) hiatus due to the pandemic. A performance of Kalidasa's play Mālavikāgnimitram by Dhaatu Puppet Theater will be presented as a part of the welcome reception at the Satish Dhawan Auditorium, IISc, Bengaluru.

The conference banquet will be held in Rangoli Gardens, which is a museum that showcases a model village capturing Karnataka's distinct rural life in all its quaint glory. The museum is a fascinating and close-to-realistic sculptural journey into the economy, food habits, cultural traditions, religious events, recreations, and living conditions of Karnataka. The museum also has innumerable paintings, pictures, visuals, and eco-parks, all envisioned and crafted artistically by exceptionally skilled people.
The banquet will include a visit to the museum, followed by dinner in the museum's exhibition hall that showcases different art forms of the state. Rangoli Gardens is around 11 km away from NSSC and transportation will be arranged.
