Special Interest Groups

ASA supports a number of Special Interest Groups that operate within the Association. The objectives of these are:

  • To foster the exchange of information and collaboration in research among clinicians and scientists within defined areas of interest
  • To serve as resource groups to the ASA Board and its subcommittees, in the provision of specialised expertise, in the development of position papers and in the production of educational material.
  • To serve as the voice of the SIG members to the Board, through the Membership Committee
  • To contribute to the planning of Annual Scientific Meetings by submitting proposals for symposia and speakers of interest to their particular craft group
