As a member:

  • You will receive regular information about IACS activities and opportunities (IACS Newsletter, 3-4 times a year)
  • You are eligible to engage in IACS activities and bodies, even if your country is not an adhering body to IACS, i.e. member of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG)
  • You are eligible for IACS sponsorship and financial support for workshops, summer schools, and other IACS-sponsored activities
  • If you qualify as Early Career Scientist, you may be eligible for the IACS early-career scientist prize
  • If you are a student, you are eligible for the IACS Graham Cogley Award

Your membership will also help to provide travel grants for early-career scientists and scientists from developing countries to attend IACS/IUGG symposia, since IACS receives a head tax (~ EUR 30/person) for every IACS Assembly registrant who identifies with IACS as primary affiliation.

IACS members are required to follow the IACS Code of Conduct.
