Hotel and Visa information
To participate in the Conference one have to register by filling in the
Registration / Hotel reservation form and paying the registration fee.
Registration / Hotel Reservation forms will be available
by the date of acceptance notification: April 15, 2007.
Some preliminary information can be found below.
1. HOTEL INFORMATION. One can make hotel reservation directly
with hotels or travel web-agencies (some links can be easily found
on the web and will be provided on the conference website later).
However, summer is a hot tourist season in Saint Petersburg and
hotel prices in summer are rather high. We usually recommend
to make reservation through our partner travel agency Monomax
which provides rooms in a number of hotels conveniently located not far from the conference venue (Anichkov Palace) with 5%-10% discount for conference participants. Those who prefer booking the hotel before notification of the paper acceptance
should contact organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. VISA INFORMATION. Citizens of most countries need visa to come
to Russia. In order to obtain entry visa one needs to submit an
application to the Russian consulate along with an official invitation
letter (VISA SUPPORT LETTER). VISA SUPPORT LETTER FOR TOURIST VISA
should be issued by the travel agency or the hotel.
VISA SUPPORT LETTER FOR BUSINESS VISA should be issued by Russian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs by request of an inviting organization; in our case - Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). Note
that Monomax company provides VISA SUPPORT LETTER FOR TOURIST VISA
very fast and with no extra costs along with hotel reservation.
Just mention your personal data ( name, date and place of birth,
passport number and passport expiration date) in your hotel
The Organizers can provide you with VISA SUPPORT LETTER
FOR BUSINESS VISA issued by request of RAS.
To make a request for the invitation, we must submit to Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs the filled form with your personal data
and the copy of the main page(s) of your passport with your name,
photo, date and place of birth, passport number and passport
