  • Applicants must provide us with a scan of their valid in-date passport that contains a photo of them.
  • Applicants must provide us with an academic CV and the correspondence address for the letter.
  • Applicants must provide us with a letter of support from their institute, saying they support the delegate attending the meeting.
  • This must be carried out in good time before the meeting, “last minute” requests will not be processed
  • We should forewarn delegates requesting VISA letters that a Skype/phone call MAY be required in some circumstances.
  • The general rule is that delegates must have paid for registration and submitted an successful abstract to get a letter of invitation.
