ISCA Individual Membership

ISCA Individual Membership Scheme

After a major change in 1998, ISCA modified its membership scheme in 2002. Membership is no longer synchronized to a calendar year, as ISCA gets many members via participation in workshops and conferences which may take place in any month of the year. For this reason the ISCA Board decided to move to a biannual membership scheme where membership can start at any time but will end either on December 31 or on June 30, depending on the month of entry. This new scheme is valid from January 2003 on. It is ISCA's policy that the difference between the member and nonmember registration fees equals the ISCA one-year membership fee, and we offer a free one-year membership to nonmember participants of such an event.

  1. Persons entering ISCA for the first time via regular application (i.e., not via a workshop or conference), will be members of ISCA starting with the month in which the application is received and processed by the ISCA Secretariat. The same holds for former ISCA members whose membership has ended more than six months before the new application.
  2. Persons entering ISCA via INTERSPEECH or a workshop (ITRW) will be members of ISCA starting with the month in which the event takes place.
  3. Membership Timing:
    3.1 For members registering in January through April, 1-year membership lasts until December 31 of the same year;
    3.2 For members registering in May through October, 1-year membership lasts until June 30 of the following year;
    3.3 For members registering in November and December, 1-year membership lasts until December 31 of the following year;
    3.4 For members registering for 2-year membership, one more year is added when applying the above 1-year rules
  4. A person registering for INTERSPEECH or an ISCA Workshop (ITRW) must be an ISCA member AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT to be eligible for the member's registration fee. Otherwise (s)he must register at the nonmember's rate and will then become a member of ISCA according to Rule 2.
  5. By joining ISCA as an individual member, a person grants ISCA the permission to publish his/her name, ISCA membership number, and membership status on ISCA Web for membership identification purpose.
