Proceedings Process and Deadline Policy
We request you provide your Final Proceedings paper file by the deadline date listed above. During the conference we provide a “preview only” version of the proceedings to conference attendees. There will be a 1-week period post-conference in which you will be emailed to check the proof of your Final Proceedings file prior to our official publishing. To preserve the quality and validity of the proceedings, we can only accept Proceedings files during the initial deadline period or during the 1-week proofing period following the end of conference. No papers can be accepted or added to the proceedings after 30 days from the end of conference.
(The information below refers only to on-location conferences. At this time we are not accepting additional volunteers for an online format conferences.)
If you are interested in volunteering to help at the onsite Registration desk, full-time students may apply by filling out the form and providing a valid student ID.
Approved volunteers who complete 8 work hours at the Registration desk will have their registration fee waived.
*Note: If you are an accepted author, you will still need to register and confirm your paper before the confirmation deadline. If you are accepted to volunteer after registering, we will refund your registration after you’ve completed your work hours.
Visa Information to Attend SITE Conferences
The following information may be helpful when applying for a Visa to enter the U.S. to participate in an AACE/SITE conference.
Please note that instructions and policy may change, so refer to the government websites below.
Request a Conference Letter of Invitation
To help you substantiate why you are attending the conference, AACE/SITE enables authors, who have submitted a conference presentation proposal or who have paid the registration fee, to print a personalized invitation letter.
If you have NOT submitted a proposal to the conference and are requesting an invitation letter, please send your justification to this address.
Apply as early as possible
We recommend applying at least 4 months in advance. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews, so applicants should first contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview. Estimated wait times for your consulate may be available here.
Check the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) to see if your country is listed — Some non US participants may not need visas if they are citizens of countries on the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). However, all citizens of VWP countries must have a Machine-Readable Passport (MRP) in order to travel to the United States without a visa. An MRP is needed to apply for a visa. Information on the Visa Waiver Program and list of countries is available here.
Check your visa expiration date
- If you have a U.S. visa, check the expiration date to make sure that the visa will not expire before your planned travel date.
What you need to apply
- Information about visitor visas and what a person needs to apply, is available on the U.S. Dept. of State’s Visa Services web site.
To apply for a visa
After identifying that a visa is needed, non U.S. travelers should contact the Embassy Consular Section in their country to determine visa processing timeframes. We recommend contacting the Consular Section.
Look for posted timeframes on the internet or call the Consular Section to hear recorded information about visa processing timeframes.
