How to become a member

Membership is automatic if you attend one of our conference, and it lasts three years. So, for example, if you attended ILS2 in 2016 you became a member until ILS3, in 2019. Then your membership expired and had to be renewed.

You can also become a member without attending our conferences. It’s enough to pay a membership fee of 50€ to the ILS bank account, IBAN ES87 0237 0172 2091 6858 6550. Click here for more details.

If you pay the fee don’t forget to notify our treasurer Diego Rubiales ( and our webmaster Nelson Nazzicari (
