SIGDOC is a Special Interest Group for Documentation—a society of senior communication professionals. Members are from all technical and scientific disciplines, those who create documentation in the computing community and those who use computers to create documentation in many styles and media.

SIGDOC provides a forum on documentation and user support for computer products and systems. The SIG studies and publishes on processes, methods, and technologies for communicating information via printed and online text, hypermedia, and multimedia. Members include technical communication professionals, educators, and researchers, as well as system designers, developers, usability specialists, and managers responsible for producing or supervising the creation of documentation, online help systems, and user interfaces.
