Yes, We can have a registration fee, but a small amount. Rs. 100-200 would be my suggestion. It should be affordable to students also (That's better than having different levels of registrations like student, professional etc)

We can have T-Shirts and the profit from that can be used to setup private communication system like Shirish and Praveen suggested. After all, swags do play an important role among students. :)

This would be cool.

My suggestion is to go with dinner, it helps people to mingle more (which may be more productive).
