FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I NEED A PERSONAL LETTER OF INVITATION?

Personal letters of invitation are not necessary to attend this conference; however, they are available upon request to those that may need them. If you submitted an abstract that was accepted for a presentation, you can obtain a letter of invitation through the online Meeting Abstracts Programming Service or through email from conference secretary. If you are not submitting an abstract but require a letter of invitation for visa purposes, send us your request via e-mail. You must provide your full legal name, institution/business with complete address, and date of birth. A letter of invitation will be sent to you via email. If you need a hard copy letter (and printing the letter sent to you via email will not suffice), we will invoice you for applicable international mailing costs. Once your payment is received, the letter will be posted to you.

I NEED A VISA, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

we recommends that you start this process 3 - 6 months before the conference but not later than two months before the conference. If you are submitting an abstract, you will not be notified of its acceptance until late March which does not allow enough time to obtain a visa before the conference, so please plan in advance. 

IMPORTANT: All applicants must be able to qualify for a visa on their own merits under the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act. We are unable to call or generate personal letters to the embassy or consulate on your behalf.
