1[] Gabor Weise -- possible passport / invitation issues
2
3First, let me say that I like very much the kind of things Gabor is
4saying about the content of his course. With a little bit of massage
5his first paragraph works well as something to communicate to
6prospective students.

8About practical issues - yes, there are unpleasant hoops that visitors
9have to jump through, and it is best to get started on them right
10away. So, we should write a letter of invitation to him.  It should be
11specific about the time and the compensation. He mentioned running his
12course the first week, but if he'll be in residence for both weeks
13that's fine. Usually we offer a per diem of $120/day and cover travel 14expenses (he's right about the US carrier requirement also). If you 15want to offer more per diem (the IRS max is$148/day) or honorarium,
16let us know and we'll write the letter of invitation.
