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:

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.

IEICE Special Interest Group on Software Interprise Modelling

SWIM focuses on the modeling of interprise, which means inter-enterprise and internet-based enterprise. The following three areas are jointly investigated:

1. Designing business plan of interprise.

2. Implementing information system of interprise.

3. Validating and verifying interprise model.

Asociación Española para la Inteligencia Artificial

The Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) was established in 1983 to encourage and promote the development of Artificial Intelligence in both the Spanish and the Latin American context. AEPIA is a non-profit organization formed by tenured and institutional partners. It is a member of ECCAI (European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence) , founding member of the Spanish Confederation of Scientific Unions (COSCE) and founding member of IBERAMIA ( Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence ). AEPIA biennially organizes CAEPIA, the international Conference of the Association, along with Technology Transfer Days in alternate years, and co-organizes IBERAMIA , the Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence in collaboration with other associations from different Latin American countries. AEPIA also sponsors the Spanish Conference on Informatics (CEDI) , since its first edition in 2005. In 2013, for the first time, AEPIA will organize EVIA, the Summer School in Artificial Intelligence. Among the purposes of AEPIA are the creation and coordination of working groups, the support of technology transfer, supporting institutions (Universities, R&D+i , enterprises , institutions, etc.) in order to facilitate innovation and application of the techniques and applications of artificial intelligence, to support and provide a discussion forum for researchers and students in their Artificial Intelligence related activities, from the aspects of scientific and technological research, development, application and teaching.

Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence

Founded in 1979, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) (formerly the American Association for Artificial Intelligence) is a nonprofit scientific society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines. AAAI aims to promote research in, and responsible use of, artificial intelligence.
