Default Pre-Interview communication with programs

Hi everyone, I would like to hear your thoughts on how to best communicate with programs after receiving an interview invitation until the actual interview date.

How much correspondence do you think is best?

Do you thank each program for the opportunity/hotel room etc. ... ?

Especially if the scheduling process is highly automated.. I am wondering if I should contact this programs and what to write ?

Thank you for your thoughts and good luck to all!
