If you require a visa memo, please send your name, mailing address and fax number to and for those with accepted papers, please include the title and all authors of your paper. All this information is necessary, and omitting any of it will delay the issuing of the memo. Mrs. Frawley will assist in providing visa memos for attending the conference.
