Authors and attendees of IEEE conferences are responsible for obtaining visas from the host country they are planning to visit. Travelers should check the host country's policies, and if a visa is required, obtain it from the appropriate foreign consular representative before proceeding abroad. Applicants for visas should generally apply at the embassy or consulate with jurisdiction over their place of permanent residence, as it may be more difficult to qualify for the visa outside their country of permanent residence. Once received, visas should be reviewed to ensure there are no mistakes. Processing and visa fees vary, and fees may not be refundable.

With security policies tightening around the world, adequate time should be allowed for processing visa applications. Applicants should initiate the process as early in their travel planning as possible. The embassy or consulate of the conference's host country should be consulted for specific details. Information regarding U.S. visa policy is available online at

Conference registrants who require invitation letters from CSB2005 in order to process their visa requests should correspond with us via the e-mail or via FAX to +1-650-941-2015.

Please note that no letters can be sent until after we have received and verified the payment of all registration fees. Please make requests early enough to allow time for delivery of our letter via Postal Service or FAX prior to scheduled interviews.

Your on-line registration will be confirmed by email as soon as your credit card company approves the charges. Fax or postal registrations will be confirmed within 48 hours of receiving your registration. If you do not receive confirmation, please email us at or call 1-650-941-2015.
