Special Resources for International Attendees
We extend a special welcome to SC10 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 SC10 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 SC10 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 the Center will be a key source of information for you.
