GSA Interdisciplinary Interest Groups (IIGs)

GSA has been approached by members interested in forming “Interdisciplinary Interest Groups” that focus on scientific fields that cut across several GSA specialty science Divisions. Interdisciplinary Interest Groups will have an informal structure and will assist members in organizing topical science groups under the auspices of GSA and provide a discussion forum for scientific interests not currently well-served through the existing GSA Division structure.

Goals:

  • Build interdisciplinary interactions across specific disciplines;
  • Sponsor topical or special sessions at GSA meetings (Section or Annual);
  • Develop opportunities for interdisciplinary and specialized meetings;
  • Submit interdisciplinary publications
