Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are groups of people that share a specific research interest in the EHPS. The EHPS subdivision Synergy aims to facilitate SIGs in their collaboration, for example by providing a list of facilities on the internet that can facilitate collaboration in a SIG. Please read the guidelines for more information.

Membership of the Special Interest Groups works through mailing lists. Anybody can subscribe or unsubscribe by sending an email to these mailing lists. Once you subscribed, you can send emails to the list that are then distributed among all members. Subscribing or unsubscribing to this mailing list works through the subscription management email address, which differs per mailing list. To subscribe, send an email with as only text "subscribe"; and to unsubscribe, with as only text "unsubscribe". Note that the text ('subscribe' or 'unsubscribe') must be in the mail body, and NOT in the subject! Also note that mailing list programs are not always fond of HTML mail, so use Plain Text mails if you can! See this page for an explanation on how to send Plain Text emails. To use the mailing lists, simply send an email to the regular usage email address, and it will be distributed among the mailing list members.
