The congress organisation will be pleased to send a formal letter of invitation to delegates requesting an invitation letter for Visa purposes. The letters can be requested during online-registration and will be sent as e-mail attachment. It is understood that such an invitation is intended to help potential delegates to raise funds or to obtain a visa. This does not imply a commitment from the congress to provide any financial support. Kindly note if your visa will be rejected we will refund the registration fee without any penalties. A proof of rejection is mandatory and has to be provided until one week before congress at the latest!
