The PC Users Group
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Special Interest Groups are created by members within the group
as a forum for the dicussion of a particular aspect of computing.
SIGs come and go - some last years, some only months. Typically
a group of people with similar interests will get together to
form a SIG, and will hold regular meetings or other activities.
If you would like to form a SIG, the Group will be happy to fund
refreshments and to provide the PCUG Centre as
a venue (other engagements permitting). Within reason, the Group
will also support any special projects the SIG embarks upon. Listed
below are some SIGs which are active at time of writing. SIGs change
quite rapidly, so please check the latest issue of the PCUG journal
for the most current details
If you would like to start a SIG or you are a SIG convener and
have questions, please contact
