IASIL membership dues may be paid through your PayPal account. To do this, scroll to the bottom of this section to complete your subscription payment; there is no need to fill out a membership form as your address and other details come through from PayPal.

When your account goes live (this usually takes up to ten days) you will receive a username and password enabling access to the Members’ Area of the IASIL website.  If renewing using the same email as last year, your username and password will remain the same. You need to access the IASIL website using the same email address as the one given in your PayPal transaction; if you wish to use an alternative email address, please contact our Assistant Treasurer, Lucy Imbusch, at and our Secretary/Website Manager, Clíona Ó Gallchoir at


When renewing, members might consider supporting the participation of postgraduate students in the annual conference. In order to honour the memory of our distinguished colleague and friend, long-term IASIL Executive member Professor Werner Huber, the Executive has decided to announce the scholarship for the 2017 conference in his name. Anyone wishing to donate to the scholarship fund can use the “Donate” button on PayPal (see below), but you might drop a line to the Treasurer, Tina O’Toole, to specify that fund in particular:

The IASIL Support Fund was set up in August 2001 to subsidise travel to and accommodation at conferences in Ireland of non-student members from countries where the financial costs would otherwise constitute great hardship, and to assist students to attend IASIL conferences. If you’d like to donate to the fund, use the “Donate” button below (any amount from €20 up would be much appreciated!).
