IIM is mostly available in Sept, Oct.  We will ask them again once we have
decided on a date here.

I remember you talked to some one for a Keynote, do you have a specific
date/time period they would be available?

Let's start a separate thread for Keynote speakers.

The main reason for suggesting Oct 27-29 was it would be late in Oct
hopefully avoiding some of the heat Delhi is famous for.

It should be fine to adjust based on the need of the attendees including
Keynote speakers.
