We are pleased to announce that all registered participants in the 18th World Sanskrit Conference will receive a complimentary membership (for the 2022 calendar year) to the International Association of Sanskrit Studies, the foremost professional association of international Sanskrit scholars, which founded the World Sanskrit Conference in 1971. This is a $50 value ($25 for students). After registering for the WSC, your name, contact details, and membership fees will be forwarded to the IASS, who will contact you for the next steps.

If you do not wish to become a member of the IASS, you may opt out of the complimentary membership during the registration process (without refund of the value of the membership).

As part of the WSC2022 registration process, you will also have the option of purchasing a 2-year top-up of your IASS membership, so that you remain an IASS member in good standing through the 2023 calendar year. You may purchase this as an add-on item during the registration process for WSC2022.

If you are currently a paid IASS member for 2021, you have two options: you may either elect to (a) apply the complimentary IASS membership for the 2022 calendar year, or (b) receive a discounted registration rate. If you choose the latter, please contact the Secretariat.

[Also, please be sure NOT to select the 2-year top-up option if you are a paid IASS member, and instead contact the IASS directly for securing your membership through 2024. Please do not hesitate to contact the Secretariat for proper procedures BEFORE paying registration fees, as we will not be able to make adjustments or provide refunds afterwards, without an additional $35 administrative fee.]

To buy a 2-year add-on to your IASS membership, please visit the WSC2022 Registration Portal.
