We encourage you to review the Field Trip details on the 11th ICRS webpage:
www.nova.edu/ncri/11icrs.  Please check the Field Trip details carefully to
learn about what is and what is not included in the registration fees.  



We advise meeting attendees traveling to the United States to please apply
for a visa as early as possible (at least four months before visa is
needed). Please check with your local U.S. consulate or embassy to find out
the earliest that you may apply. Because of the number of visas being
processed and the need to be thorough with the reviews, this can take as
long 10-12 weeks.


Ask for a letter of invitation from the 11th ICRS Meeting Office to attend
at least four (4) months prior to the meeting. Please contact Nancy Copen
(ncopen at faseb.org) for this letter.
