Find Scholars Who Share Your IB Interests

AIB’s Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are communities within the larger academy where members can focus on developing their work within a specific subject area or research methodology.

SIG participation is open to all active AIB members. Typical activities include networking events and special workshop sessions at our regional and global conferences.
