ACCS Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

The ACCS has started Special Interest Groups (SIGs).  These groups allow members to interact even after the sessions have ended.  The SIGs have already been created (using Google Groups) allowing members to discuss things of interest all year long.  Each SIG will have a meeting during the annual Conference.

The SIGs and their Chairs are listed below.  To join a SIG, send a message to the corresponding SIG Chair by clicking on their name below.  Once the SIG Chair has added you to the group, you may access the group by using the links for the group name below.
