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.

ESEM - European Society for Engineering and Medicine


The mission of ESEM is to establish a platform of cooperation between medicine and engineering on a European basis.
Such a bridge between medicine and engineering is vital in today's highly technological multi-disciplinary health care. Without this, medical doctors cannot keep up with rapidly developing health care technology and cannot provide their patients with state-of-the-art medical diagnosis and treatment. Equally, without close contact with medical doctors, engineers cannot focus their efforts upon the most pressing medical problems.

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society


IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is the world's largest international society of biomedical engineers. The organization's 9,100 members reside in some 97 countries around the world. EMBS provides its members with access to the people, practices, information, ideas and opinions that are shaping one of the fastest growing fields in science.

International Society for Computational Biology


The International Society for Computational Biology is a scholarly society dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. The ISCB communicates the significance of our science to the larger scientific community, governments, and the public at large. The ISCB serves a global membership by impacting government and scientific policies, providing high quality publications and meetings, and through distribution of valuable information about training, education, employment and relevant news from related fields.
The BIOSTEC 2016 conference is affiliated with the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). The conference coordinators encourage all participants, who are not ISCB-members, to join the Society to take advantage of the discounted fee for ISCB members. To become a member of ISCB go to http://www.iscb.org/iscb-new-member-registration.

ACM SIGBio


The ACM Special Interest Group on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Biomedical Informatics (SIGBio) was instituted in 2010 with the aim of focusing on research on bioinformatics data management topics, roughly covered by the so-called biological and biomedical data, knowledge, and information management. The focus of SIGBio is to bridge computer science, mathematics, and statistics, with biology and biomedicine, sharing research interests in the management of data related to life sciences. The mission of ACM SIGBio is to support advanced research, training, and outreach in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Biomedical Informatics by stimulating interactions among researchers, educators and practitioners from related multi-disciplinary felds.
