Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

The EMGS SIG meetings are a time-tested favorite of the Annual Meeting. The format provides free-form discussions and short presentations of the key challenges and research needs of the interest area. The SIGs provide a casual way for young investigators and seasoned researchers to interact. The SIGs also play a major role in identifying the scientific topics for symposia and workshops during the next Annual Meeting, which will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina in September 2017. For more information about the SIGs, visit the EMGS website. If you are interested in attending one or more SIG meetings, please check the appropriate boxes when you register. Please note that the SIG meetings are free but pre-registration is encouraged.

The Women in EMGS group is hosting a lunch on Monday. The fee to attend is $30 and this meeting is open to all registrants of the EMGS meeting.
