Visa Information

General Information

All international attendees must have a valid passport. We would like to advise all participants, who may be required to apply for a visa, that the application process requires time and may take up to a few months. Please visit the Spanish Ministry of Foreing Affairs website for full visa acquisition information.

Invitation Letter

The SAM 2014 Organizing Committee provides an electronic invitation letter with the signature of the conference general chair. Please note that this letter aims to assist delegates who need to obtain a visa or permission to attend the Workshop. It is not an official invitation covering fees and other expenses and does not imply any financial support from the Workshop.

Payment for registration fees must have been finalized, before requesting an invitation letter. If you fail to get your VISA and your workshop registration fee is already paid, it will be totally reimbursed to you. For that being possible, please send us an official document signed by the Consulate/Embassy to proof your failure status.

To make a request, please send an email with the words "invitation letter request" in the subject field to the Technical Secretariat Marcos Díaz at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Please kindly provide the following information:

  • Full name and passport number
  • Valid email address
  • Position (e.g. Prof., Ph.D. student, etc.), affiliation and address with Zipcode
  • Paper number and paper title
  • Purpose for attending the SAM 2014 (e.g., present a paper, audit, exhibit, etc.)

The invitation letters will be emailed in a printable color pdf format and will state the facts:

  • Conference title, dates, and location.
  • That the requester is presenting a paper or a poster in the conference (if it is the case).
  • Accommodation details during his/her stay in A Coruña.
