Letter of Invitation

Provided ONLY to persons who:

  1. Have received a formal acceptance notice AND
  2. Have paid their conference registration fees

A letter of invitation for visa application will be provided ONLY to persons accepted as conference presenters who have paid their registration fees. We do not provide letters to co-authors, only to the presenter. Only one letter of invitation will be issued for a presentation. If the original presenter cannot attend the conference, under no circumstance will a second letter of invitation be issued. If the original presenter cannot attend, the presentation should be withdrawn. To request a letter, please complete and submit the Letter of Invitation Request Form.

Important: If your visa request is denied after you have registered for the conference, you are required to supply a copy of the decision letter from the embassy office, in order to get a registration refund minus a 10% administrative fee. No embassy letter, no refund.
