Please be aware that all non-Indian-citizens are required to have an Indian Visa to enter the country and that you will need to check with Indian consulates in your country to determine what is required to obtain that visa. In addition to the Visa Invitation Letter issued by IPDPS 2015 organizers, the Indian Mission/Post in the country where you are applying for a travel visa may require a copy of the Indian Government Clearance Letters to IPDPS 2015 organizers for Conference Visas. These letters are contained in a single pdf file that is available at the Visa section of the Registration page.
