Per the Community Membership page, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are:

Users, Contributors, Partners, and organizations that come together to address a specified set of use cases – usually industry- or vertical-specific – in a specified location and language.

Open Horizon SIGs are proposed by sponsoring organization and Partners, self-forming, and chartered by approving vote of the TSC.  SIGs are designed to:

  • identify use cases within an industry or vertical,

  • promote the solutions, use cases, and the group itself.
