Neither passport nor French visa is required to enter France for a foreign participant of the European Union states. A personal ID card suffices.
Other foreign participants are requested to hold their passports valid for at least 6 months. No French visas are required for citizens of most foreign countries. If needed then, please, contact the nearest French Consulate or consult web page of the French Ministry of Foregin Affairs for visa arrangements.
If an official letter of invitation is necessary then, please, send your request for an invitation letter to the organizers as soon as possible. Please, allow sufficient time preceding the Workshop for your French visa to be issued. The requested invitation letter sent is meant to help a participant to raise funds or to obtain a French visa.
However, it is not a commitment of the organizers to provide any financial support or health insurance, unless clearly stated.
