All CSI members will receive a formal certificate of membership to document their active involvement in an international research institute and contribution to the body of research in their field and others.
3. Gain Visibility
As a member, you may submit a work/service précis to be highlighted on our website and in our newsletter once per year. Understandably, only work that is in line with CSI’s mission can be highlighted.

Members are invited to attend special conference events like wine-and-cheese receptions, cocktail-and-appetizer hours, panel discussions and topic-development round tables.

7. Participate in Executive Board Supper
At each conference, the CSI Board convenes for a supper meeting. As a member, you will receive an invitation to join us and a voucher toward your meal.
8. Receive Event Scholarships
All members are eligible for our event scholarship drawings. Prior to each conference, we will draw one member’s name to receive an event scholarship which waives the registration fee for an upcoming conference (must be utilized within one calendar year).
9. Contribute to Peer Review
All members will have the opportunity to participate in refereeing of accepted papers prior to publication. Based on field expertise, from time to time, members will be invited to participate in a community of experts to conduct double-blind scholarly peer review. Members who contribute to this important process will receive a formal certificate of acknowledgement.
10. Invite a Colleague
All members are eligible to share two visitor’s invitations per year. Members receive a 25% rebate on their standard conference registration when a colleague they invite attends the same conference, too.
