A Special Integration Group is not a Special Interest Group. See Special Integration Groups Purpose.
Special Integration Groups may jointly focus on common interests (at a distance) over the year, and/or join in formal discussion at the annual meeting.
Groups congregating in designated sessions at an annual meeting may be placed into one of two categories:
- SIGs represented in Council, that have been ratified by the Board of Directors, and have scheduled at least one paper session within the past two annual meetings; and
- Coordinated sessions, that share in an Annual Meeting, but may have organizational affilations independently of the ISSS.
For more information on SIGs, consult the ISSS Bylaws, section 4.10.
Please contact the following SIG chairs for further information and any questions you may have about their work or submitting a paper in the annual meeting.

Exploratory Groups are typically convened at an annual meeting. They may come together only once or twice and then disband, or they may self-organize for formal recognition as a Special Integration Group. A SIG chair has voting authority as a member of the ISSS Council, whereas Exploratory Groups are not represented in Council.
