Special Resources for International Attendees
We extend a special welcome to SC12 attendees from outside the USA.
The SC conference series has always had a large number of international attendees, both in the technical program and the exhibit hall. As a result, a special effort is being made to provide assistance and facilities to enhance the SC12 experience of international participants. A group, known as the SC Ambassadors, has been set up to implement and develop this initiative.
The SC Ambassadors surveyed a sample of past international attendees to identify the difficulties they had encountered. Since the most frequent problems involved applying for visas, we have created a SC12 web section to help you apply for a visa. A Frequently Asked Questions page deals with other topics raised by the survey.
At the conference itself, an International Attendees Center will provide a place for you to meet, learn more about the conference, and interact with international colleagues as well as organisers of the SC conference series. We hope that the Center will be a key source of information for you.
