Dear Members of the ILSA
History of ILSA


Please email your application for membership in ILSA to rlmurphy@partners.org. Please explain your current or planned involvement with research in respiratory acoustics. Applications are reviewed by members of an advisory council. You will receive notification by e-mail within four weeks following your application. If your application has been approved you need to pay the annual fee of US$ 75 to activate your membership. This membership fee may be waived if you are a student who is sponsored by a member of ILSA (please indicate student status, if applicable, and sponsor's name in the application).

It is expected that members will attend the annual ILSA conferences.
