Visa Information

Please check whether you need a visa to enter The Netherlands and apply well in advance if you need one.

We provide visa invitation letters to data management research/industry community members (or people who will credibly attend SIGMOD/PODS 2019). Please contact CWI secretary Iris Hesp by email (irishesp at to apply for this service.

Please indicate in the email which accepted paper (or tutorial/demo/research competition entry/..) you are an author of. If you are not an author, please explain your connection with SIGMOD/PODS 2019 or the data management research or industry community, if that is non-obvious. We may ask you to register and pay for the conference first (in case the visa is denied, we would refund).
