International travel to meetings in the U.S.

We advise anyone who may need a visa to attend this CMWR Conference to apply early. International attendees at conferences in the US may already be aware that there have been changes to the visa program for scientific visitors, which affect even people from visa waiver countries. The site, maintained by The National Academies, provides guidance on obtaining the necessary documents. Please go to for additional information and procedures regarding the visa waiver program as maintained by the US Department of State. If you need a letter of invitation, e-mail the CMWR Conference office to make your request.
