The International Association of Sanskrit Studies (IASS) is an organisation whose primary purpose is to arrange the World Sanskrit Conference, which is usually held once every three years.[1] Membership is open to all[2] and, as of 2012, its president is V. Kutumba Sastry, a past Vice Chancellor of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan.[3]

The association was formed as a result of the 1972 International Sanskrit Conference that was sponsored by India's central government with collaboration from UNESCO.[4]

Indologica Taurinensia is the journal of the IASS.
