  • Important Information: US VISA ASSISTANCE. Visa applications are now subjected to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past, so that the average time for obtaining a visa has increased. In particular, many applicants are notified of the need for additional screening when submitting their visa application, and are routinely required to appear in person for an interview with immigration authorities at their local US consulate or embassy. As a result, in order to ensure the timely issuance of their visa, individuals planning to attend SIGCOMM 2005 and who will need a visa to enter the US are encouraged to begin this process as soon as possible. In case you need additional information or assistance in obtaining a visa in order to attend SIGCOMM 2005, please contact Elizabeth Grove at grove_e@hq.acm.org. (6/21/2005)
