Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale / International Union of Radio Science

URSI Individual Membership


Why URSI Individual Membership

The purpose of individual membership of URSI is to secure professional recognition of individual radio scientists and to establish their better connection with the URSI Board of Officers, Scientific Commissions, and URSI Member Committees. Three categories of individual membership (URSI Corresponding Member, URSI Senior Member and URSI Fellow) have been established.

URSI Corresponding Membership is the first step into the URSI community and provides:

  • access to the proceedings of URSI Flagship Conferences via the website
  • notifications of new editions of URSI publications.

In addition, URSI Senior Members and URSI Fellows benefit from the following:

  • Reduced registration fees at URSI Flagship Meetings.
  • Reduced registration fees at some meetings organised by partnering organisations such as (but not limited to) IEEE AP-S and EuCAP.
  • A page charge reduction from 175 USD to 150 USD for papers published in the URSI journal, Radio Science Letters.
  • An invitation to receive their individual membership certificate at an URSI Flagship meeting.

Fellowship is by invitation only; Senior Membership can be by invitation or application. Corresponding Membership is a streamlined, instant process.
