How to Create a SIG

If you don't find a SIG for your field of interest, consider starting one.

There is no cost to form a SIG. Meeting space, A/V equipment, and Internet access are provided. SIG leaders generally find it most convenient to use their own laptop computers for presentations, but other arrangements may be possible.

The requirements are:

  • Leadership - at least one individual willing to lead the SIG, and an assistant.
  • Membership - at least eight individuals willing to attend the SIG fairly consistently.

If you have a group that meets these qualifications or would like help in finding others who might share your interests, please contact SIG Coordinator at
