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 Sixteen Bits for the most current details

If you would like to start a SIG or you are a SIG convener and have questions, please contact the SIG Coordinator .
