You are encouraged to apply for visas as early as possible to attend the 2016 43rd IEEE-PVSC in Portland, OR. The Department of State recommends applying for a visa at least 3-4 months before the meeting. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews so applicants should first contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview.
