From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  SIG
   /sig/, n.
  
      (also common as a prefix in combining forms) A Special Interest Group, in
      one of several technical areas, sponsored by the Association for Computing
      Machinery; well-known ones include SIGPLAN (the Special Interest Group on
      Programming Languages), SIGARCH (the Special Interest Group for Computer
      Architecture) and SIGGRAPH (the Special Interest Group for Computer
      Graphics). Hackers, not surprisingly, like to overextend this naming
      convention to less formal associations like SIGBEER (at ACM conferences)
      and SIGFOOD (at University of Illinois).

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  signature
  sig
  
     1. A set of function symbols with arities.
  
     2.  (Or sig) A few lines of information about the
     sender of an electronic mail message or news posting.
     Most Unix mail and news software will automagically append
     a signature from a file called .signature in the user's home
     directory to outgoing mail and news.
  
     A signature should give your real name and your e-mail
     address since, though these appear in the headers of your
     messages, they may be munged by intervening software.  It is
     currently (1994) hip to include the URL of your home page
     on the web in your sig.
  
     The composition of one's sig can be quite an art form,
     including an ASCII logo or one's choice of witty sayings
     (see sig quote, fool file).  However, large sigs are a
     waste of bandwidth, and it has been observed that the size
     of one's sig block is usually inversely proportional to one's
     prestige on the net.
  
     See also doubled sig, sig virus.
  
     2.  A concept very similar to abstract base
     classes except that they have their own hierarchy and can
     be applied to compiled classes.  Signatures provide a means
     of separating subtyping and inheritance.  They are
     implemented in C++ as patches to GCC 2.5.2 by Gerald
     Baumgartner .
