Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Continue to specialize in your track or choose another emphasis by participating in our DBMI Special Interest Groups.
Four special interest groups (SIGs) meet regularly around a shared interest in an informatics topic. SIGs provide a variety of activities, including review of the literature, hands-on experimentation with new tools and algorithms, reporting on research in progress, demos, field trips, invited speakers, debates, and development of funding ideas. PhD students and faculty are required to attend at least one SIG regularly; MS students are highly encouraged to attend a SIG and required to attend a track-specifc sig meeting; and people outside the department are welcome.
