Supporting Network

 The YS-ISI Regional/Country representatives of the ISI-YS Special Interest Group serve as liaisons with members of the network from the region/country. They should become members of ISI/ISI Association and "report to" the ISI-YS Committee.


bullets keep track of contact information and recruit new members to the network
bullets discuss and compile needs at country or regional level
bullets identify opportunities for activities that will benefit the region/country
bullets take the lead and initiative to organized ISI-YS workshops/short courses, sessions in local conferences and/or webinars, when the activities are held at their country, etc.
