If speakers provide us with documentation of their talks, you will find this in your account of this website.

Can I get an invitation letter for Visa purpose?
You will have the possibility to request an invitation letter by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A customized invitation letter for visa purposes is only available for participants with a confirmed registration that has been paid in full. The letter is intended to help participants raise travel funds or obtain a visa but does not imply IPOKRaTES will provide financial support.
In case of a visa request rejection, IPOKRaTES will refund the full registration fee only upon receipt of the official refusal document from the Embassy.
We urge all participants to keep in mind that a visa application may take some time to be processed and should, therefore, be initiated early enough to ensure it is accepted before the seminar begins. We invite you to check with your local embassy regarding what sort of documents are necessary.
What is the official language of the seminars?
The official seminar language is English.
Is there a dress code to follow?
The motto is "Come as You Are".
