Associations, Federations and Special Interest Groups

Aware of the importance of international cooperation for the advancement of science, INSTICC works closely together with several other national and international associations and is proud to welcome them as partners in its activities or to arrange initiatives in cooperation with them.

While several forms of partnership are welcome, INSTICC places special value in "Technical Co-Sponsorships", by means of which both associations support each other from a scientific perspective for their mutual benefit. Additionally, in this case, members of partner organizations benefit from the same registration conditions as INSTICC members.

Current Institutional Partners:

Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

INSTICC is the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, a scientific, non-profit, association whose main goals are to serve the international scientific community by promoting, developing and disseminating knowledge in the areas of information systems and technologies, control and communication. It has organized hundreds of successful scientific conferences accross the world since 2003, in collaboration with the main international institutions in its areas of interest.


Workflow Management Coalition

Founded in 1993, the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) is a global organization of adopters, developers, consultants, analysts, as well as university and research groups engaged in workflow and BPM. The WfMC creates and contributes to process related standards, educates the market on related issues, and is the only standards organization that concentrates purely on process. The WfMC created Wf-XML and XPDL, the leading process definition language used today in over 80 known solutions to store and exchange process models. XPDL is a process design format for storing the visual diagram and all design time attributes.


Object Management Group

The Object Management Group (OMG) is an international, open membership, not-for-profit computer industry standards consortium. Founded in 1989, OMG standards are driven by vendors, end-users, academic institutions and government agencies.


Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents

FIPA is an IEEE Computer Society standards organization that promotes agent-based technology and the interoperability of its standards with other technologies.


Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence

APPIA (the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence, www.appia.pt) was founded in 1984, and is the portuguese arm of ECCAI. It has circa 200 members active in all areas of AI, in research, academia, and industry. In addition to other international events, every two years it organizes one of the oldest european AI conferences, "EPIA", the Portuguese AI Conference.


Associazione Italiana per l'Intelligenza Artificiale

The Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA - Associazione Italiana per l''Intelligenza Artificiale) is a non-profit scientific society founded in 1988 devoted to the promotion of Artificial Intelligence. The society aims to increase the public awareness of AI, encourage the teaching of it and promote research in the field.


European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology

EUSFLAT is a new non-profit European Society with the following aims:
- To promote and disseminate the methods, techniques and developments of Fuzzy Logic and technologies
- To encourage the scientific communication and collaboration among its members
- To assemble a group of specialists belonging to different academic fields and professional practices
- To advise associates and companies on subjects regarding Fuzzy Logic and Technologies and other related matters
- To represent the European researchers in Fuzzy Logic and their technologies at the IFSA council
- To establish relations with other national or international associations with similar aims
- To organize, promote and sponsor conferences, workshops and seminars


European Association for Artificial Intelligence

The European Association for Artificial Intelligence EurAI (formerly ECCAI) was established in July 1982 as a representative body for the European Artificial Intelligence community. Its aim is to promote the study, research and application of Artificial Intelligence in Europe.


Spanish Association of Artificial Intelligence

The Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) was created in 1983 to promote and encourage the development of Artificial Intelligence both in Spain and in the Ibero-American. AEPIA is a non-profit association formed by numerary and institutional partners. He is a member of ECCAI (European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence), founding member of the Spanish Confederation of Scientific Associations (COSCE) and a founding member of IBERAMIA. AEPIA organizes biennially the Spanish Conference of the Association together with the Conference of Technology Transfer and in the alternate years co-organizes IBERAMIA, the Ibero-American Conference of Artificial Intelligence with the collaboration of other associations from different Ibero-American countries. AEPIA also sponsors the Spanish Computer Conferences (CEDI), since its first edition in 2005.

Among the purposes of the AEPIA are the creation and coordination of working groups, support for technology transfer, support for entities (universities, R & D centers, companies, institutions, etc.) to facilitate their innovation and application of the techniques and applications of Artificial Intelligence, provide a support and discussion forum for researchers and students in their activities related to Artificial Intelligence, from the aspects of scientific and technological research, development, application and teaching.
