Help on arrival at Bangalore International Airport:

            Asiacrypt Help Desk : On 30 Nov 2013 and on 01 Dec 2013 (24 hours on both days), there will be a help desk at the airport. To identify this desk go to the Café Coffee Day on your right in the big hall just as you leave the customs area (but before leaving the terminal building) and look for the counter with  Asiacrypt 2013 banners. Staff at the Asiacrypt 2013 desk will help you pick up a taxi that will take you to your hotel.

            On your own : If you arrive on days other than Nov 30 or Dec 1, you should get a taxi on your own to get to your hotel. There are three official taxi operators at the airport: Meru Cabs, Mega Cabs and KSTDC cabs. All of them operate from a single taxi rank situated outside the terminal building. As you exit the terminal building, follow signs to “Airport taxi” to take one of these cabs. We advise you not to entertain cab rides from companies or drivers other than these companies.
