Who is eligible to receive a Letter of Invitation?
UAA welcomes the participation of urbanists from across the globe. However, we provide Letters of Invitation (for visa applications) ONLY to persons who are paper presenters, or have been invited to speak in a colloquy session. Poster session presentations are typically not supported by funding agencies. Caution: UAA does not provide funding to support international travel or registration waivers for international participants. You must secure independent funding to support your participation in the conference.
