Visa Assistance Letters

We strongly encourage early application for a visa since the process can sometimes be quite lengthy through various embassies.

To obtain a visa to attend an IEEE conference, some embassies will request presentation of a letter from IEEE.  We will be glad to provide a soft copy (in PDF format) via email.  Please make your request to and provide the following information:

  • Your Contact Information:
    • Name
    • Company or University
    • Mailing Address
      • Number and Street
      • City
      • State/Province
      • Postal Code
      • Country
    • Telephone Number
  • Your IEEE Member Number (if applicable)
  • Your EDAS Paper Number (if applicable)
  • Your Registration ID Number (This 4-digit number will be included in the confirmation email message received upon paying your registration fees.  Your registration receipt will strengthen your request for a visa and we will reference it in our letter – it is also recommended that you take your registration receipt to your visa interview)
  • Your Passport Information:
    • Nationality
    • Date of Birth
    • Passport Number
    • Date of Issue

Included Tutorial

Design and Measurement of CMOS RF-DC Energy Harvesting Circuits

bd Dr. Murat Eskiyerli, Revolution Semiconductor

This tutorial starts from the first principles and covers the single and multi-stage CMOS RF to DC rectifier design, efficiency, the simulation methodology and the measurement methods for the chip input impedance — a prerequisite for the design of the optimum tag antenna.

Included Tutorial

Reverse Engineering a Passive UHF RFID Tag

bd Dr. Brian Degnan,
Georgia Tech

Passively-powered RFID tags are limited by the energy in the carrier wave, and custom ASIC implementations give the maximum flexibility and power performance, but at an increase in design time.  This tutorial will give an overview of the circuit requirements for a theoretical tag that was reverse engineered from the Gen2 specification.

Included Workshop

Writing Better Papers and More Successful Proposals

Organized by Shahriar Mirabbasi

Learn the do’s and don’ts for writing better technical papers and more successful grant proposals. Learn views and tips on how to avoid common mistakes that often result in a speedy rejection. And, maybe most importantly, learn how to maximize ethics and minimize honest mistakes like accidental plagiarism.
