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 across 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.

ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling

Founded in April 1969, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group (SIG) on Simulation and Modeling (SIM) aims to promote and disseminate the advancement of high quality state-of-the-art in Modeling and Simulation (M&S) across a broad range of interests and disciplines

Institute of Engineering and Management

Institute of Engineering and Management (IEM) is a research and training center focused on knowledge creation and practice in Lean, Agile, DevOps, Digital Transformation, and Enterprise Engineering.
It specializes in using Frameworks such as Scrum, SAFe®, DEMO, and methods and tools such as Modeling and Simulation.

European Council for Modeling and Simulation

ECMS, The European Council for Modelling and Simulation is an independent forum of European academics and practitioners dedicated to research, development, and applications of modelling and simulation.

Bulgarian Modeling and Simulation Association

Bulgarian M&S Association – BULSIM is a non-profit organization for public benefit, dedicated to dissemination and recognition of Modeling, Simulation and Training in Bulgaria, Europe and all over the world. BULSIM strives for excellence, high professional standards, lofty moral and loyalty of the specialists in this domain. The Association provides professional environment for collaboration among industry, academia and government. All BULSIM members endorse the Code of Professional Ethics for Simulationists.

European Training and Simulation Association

ETSA has established itself as "The European Voice" of the MS&T community.
ETSA represents the European training and simulation community. It provides a non-partisan environment for government bodies, academia, users and suppliers within Europe to network, exchange opportunities, ideas, information and strategies on education, training and simulation technology & methodology.
ETSA undergoes, and co-ordinates, research, development and innovation work to promote and help instigate, improve and extend the widespread use and efficacy of modelling and simulation technologies (including virtual, augmented and mixed reality) and practices for training and other applications throughout the European community.
ETSA organises seminars, workshops, visits and interest groups. It runs an informative website, publishes regular Members' Newsletters and provides Member discounts/benefits at many major training & simulation exhibitions, conferences and events World-wide.
If you have a professional interest in education, training, modelling and simulation in Europe, join Europe's premier Association.

Movimento Italiano Modellazione e Simulazione

MIMOS has been created from an initiative of a group of Italian operators in the simulation field; during an informal meeting held in February 2000 in Turin, they agreed on the opportunity to increase the knowledge on Modelling and Simulation in Italy by exchanging reciprocal experiences. The idea was to proceed with the creation of a National Association on Modelling and Simulation acting as a reference point for all Companies, Organisations and Users involved, in any way and form, in such a field.

Federation of Asia Simulation Societies

ASIASIM, the Federation of Asia Simulation Societies, is a union of simulation societies in Asia. At present, simulation societies of China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia are its members.

Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour
