Before arrival to Russia: The organizers can provide visa support for speakers and registered participants by sending official invitation letters which are required by Russian consulates for a business visa. If you need such a letter please send an e-mail to the conference address:

The average processing time for an invitation letter is one week for the EU citizens and 3 weeks for the US citizens.

If you do not plan to receive any kind of payment in Russia (such as the reimbursement of travel expenses from the conference grants) you may apply for a tourist visa.

Citizens of Israel may enter Russia (and receive reimbursement) without visa.

After arrival to Russia: If you plan to stay in Russia for at most 7 business days then you are not required to register with local authorities. For instance, if you arrive to Russia on June 1 and leave on June 10 then you can stay without registration. If your stay includes more than 7 business days please contact the organizers regarding registration upon your arrival.
