Eric Paterson raised an interesting question in his last e-mail which most of us should have received.
Having SIGs as the "SIG on Ship Hydrodynamics" and the "SIG on Multiphase Flows", do we need one specifically on Interfacial Flows, or Wave Hydrodynamics (or possibly rename the groups)?
- Let's use the discussion boards rather than e-mails
- What do you think?
My opinion is that there is enough space for SIGs on a very specific topic and for SIGs on more general ones. The first in my view can discuss and work on more concrete issues pertaining to their specific field of activity (maybe using the provided open sub-project manager for collaborative projects), while the latter one may be a pool for cross-communication and more general discussion (which might yield into (core-)feature requests).
However, to clarify things a new category would be good:
- Working Groups (active on a specific topic)
- Special Interest Group (general field of activity)
