Some participants might require a visa to travel to France. In particular cases, to obtain a visa, a participant is asked to present an 'official letter of invitation' to the embassy. Official letters of invitation will only be issued by the organising committee when the individual has completed the following criteria:

1) Registration and abstract submission have been accepted by the organising committee.

2) The letter from the head of their academic department on the University headed paper has been received. This letter should state the reason for attending the meeting.

The letters of invitation do not imply commitment of financial or other support by the organisers.
