AIC is a diverse and dynamic group whose members have expertise in a wide range of fields. The array of complimentary interests and skills present within the group provides valuable synergies and potential for serendipitous interactions. Collaborative work within the group provides a vital contribution to its research output. To this end, several initiatives are undertaken in order to encourage collaboration and cooperation within AIC. The recently formed AIC Collaboration Committee has been created in order to undertake and oversee these efforts.
