Travel & Visa


GETTING TO Salt Lake City:

Salt Lake is a great mix of metro and mountain — a modern city with a small-town feel.  It is not called the crossroads of the west for nothing; getting to Salt Lake City is easy, thanks to convenient access by road, rail and air.

Before securing a flight to Salt Lake City, please review the Travel Requirements on the Visit Salt Lake website page.

Visa Requirements

Conference participants should familiarize themselves with visa requirements well in advance of the conferences. The 2024 Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC’22) organizers encourage you to apply for your visa as early as possible, at least 3 to 4 months prior to this conference.

The letter does not imply financial support from the conference. Your letter will be EMAILED to you. A hard copy will be faxed and mailed to you via regular airmail only if requested. Any fees for sending letters via express mail must be paid for by the requester.

Salt Palace Convention Center

Conveniently located in downtown Salt Lake City and only minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, the Salt Palace is easy to get to.

Many of the convention center’s most striking visual features were obtained through the creative use of hollow structural steel in exposed applications. The entrance towers, delicate snowflake chandeliers, and grand five-story main concourse make the Salt Palace part architectural showpiece, part modern art sculpture, and ready to be all business.
