Collaborative SIG 7 Feb 2023

  • STDL Commons Area main floor

NEW! Collaborative Special Interest Group - 7 Feb 2023

CAGGNI's Collaborative SIG studies and generates reports on community-level problems. We work together in small teams of 4-6 people to address unsolved problems where bodies of data exist but have not yet been analyzed or written up. The end result is a paper to a top-level society and a website, video, book, or whatever other vehicle would tell the story more completely.

Today's Topic We will introduce the model for the Co-SIG and criteria for study problems, with examples. Each team member may then submit a proposal for a problem for the team to work on. At the 2nd meeting, we will consider the proposals and choose which proposal(s) to work on first.

Today's Assignment is to draw up a Study Proposal to be considered as the team's project at the next meeting. 

Note: The Co-SIG is not a presentation-style SIG, it is a working group; all participants are expected to be equal contributors; each participant will be expected to report on progress at each meeting.

SIG Lead: Michelle Wilson

CAGGNI SIGs are for members only. Please let Michelle know if you will be attending, at collaborativeSIG @

Meeting Style: The Co-SIG is a live-only offering. We meet in the Commons area at STDL on the main floor. We will alternate between 2 pm and 7 pm meetings to give people who work during business hours an opportunity to join.
