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

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