  • STDL Commons Area main floor

NEW! Collaborative Special Interest Group - 2 May 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 consider each study proposal and use a ranked choice voting process to choose which proposal to work on this year. If we have sufficient SIG members, we will choose 2 or 3 proposals and divide into teams for the remainder of the year with the aim of publishing on each study proposal. 

Today's Assignment Following the meeting, each participant should draw up a Plan of Attack on the selected Study Proposal and begin looking into how different datasets could be developed, mined, and/or analyzed. At the next meeting we will assess these plans and develop a work strategy for the next inter-meeting period.

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. 

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.
