International Society for Biosemiotic Studies (ISBS)
The purpose of the International Society for Biosemiotic Studies (ISBS) is to constitute an organizational framework for the collaboration among scholars dedicated to biosemiotic studies, and to propagate knowledge of this field of study to researchers in related areas, as well as to the public in general. Specifically, the ISBS will assure the organization of regular meetings on research into the semiotics of nature, as well as to promote all kinds of publication of scholarly work on the semiotics of life processes.
Membership in the International Society for Biosemiotic Studies is only $10 per year and entitles members to discounts on new subscriptions to the journal Biosemiotics, as well as inclusion on the ISBS Mailing List announcing upcoming conferences, calls for papers, publication notices and events in biosemiotics.
