ESERA presently has five Special Interest Groups (SIGs); see www.esera.org/sigs/esera-special-interest-groups . These groups facilitate communication and cooperation between ESERA members sharing research interests on a specific issue (either thematic or methodological). Members are invited to join one or more SIGs for an additional fee of € 3 a year. The Board also encourages establishing new SIGs; see www.esera.org/sigs/guidelines-for-sig-coordinators for details. There will be opportunities to get in touch with SIGs during the ESERA 2017 conference, both through thematic symposia and through SIG meetings to be held at lunchtime on Tuesday. If you have questions concerning SIGs, please get in touch with Ellen K. Henriksen who is the ESERA board member responsible for following up SIGs.
Springer publishes the ESERA Science Education Research Series, which includes books of selected papers from ESERA conferences as well as other titles.

During the conference, there will also be a workshop by Springer editor Bernadette Ohmer and the editor of the ESERA book series, Robin Millar. Members interested in publishing a book are invited to attend this workshop. ESERA members are entitled to reduced prices on the ESERA book series and other science education titles by Springer.
