Staying up to date
For anyone with an interest in SBGN
- check the latest News,
- subscribe to sbgn-announce and sign-discuss (see the SBGN Mailing Lists page).
For fervent developers
People particularly involved in the development process of SBGN may also want to keep an eye on recent Meeting minutes, have a look at topics discussed during recent Events, and check the results of past development surveys.
Regardless of your experience or involvement level, we value your ideas and feedback.
For reporting issues, suggesting enhancements or requesting features please use the dedicated trackers on SourceForge.net.
For general discussions about SBGN: please join the sbgn-discuss mailing list (see the SBGN Mailing Lists page) and bring up the topic there. Some of the discussions will look horribly technical, but don't let this put you off asking simple questions. The community is always eager to help.
For specific questions about this website, workshops, or other SBGN resource management topics: please send a message to the sbgn-editors mailing list (see the SBGN Mailing Lists page).
Meetings and workshops
SBGN meetings and workshops provide the best environment for learning about the process and getting involved. Please check the Events page for past and upcoming events.
The Annual SBGN Competition welcomes entries from EVERYONE, and anyone can vote for their favourite map, software tool, and outreach material. Make sure not to miss this year's deadline! (or start preparing your entry for next year...)
The community regularly gets asked to vote on a number of issues:
- SBGN competition winners (see above)
- development surveys. Surveys are created by editors, for questions (regarding possible changes to the current SBGN specifications) which have been previously debated online and during meetings. Thus everyone in the community gets an opportunity to express their preferences before a decision is made.
- yearly editor elections. Anyone can vote, and anyone can stand to be elected, provided they get at least one nomination (and self-nominations are 100% OK!) during the yearly nomination process preceding each election.
Keep an eye on sbgn-announce and sbgn-discuss and make sure not to miss the deadlines of any of these important online community events.
