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.

French association for Computer Graphics

The AFIG association (French association for Computer Graphics) aims at representing the french computer graphics community. It groups many French academic laboratories and researchers, in the following areas: geometric modelling, computational geometry, discrete geometry, computer animation, physically based models, interactive rendering, or expressive rendering for instance. The main goal of this association is to promote computer graphics for research and teaching; encourage collaborations with industry and international institutions; and develop links between researchers and industry or academics.

European Association for Computer Graphics

Eurographics is the only truly Europe-wide professional Computer Graphics association. The association supports its members in advancing the state of the art in Computer Graphics and related fields such as Multimedia, Scientific Visualization and Human Computer Interfaces. Through a world-wide membership, EG maintains close links with developments in the US, Japan and other countries, promoting the exchange of scientific and technical information and skills on a global scale.

IEEE Computer Society

The IEEE Computer Society is the computing professional's single, unmatched source for technology information, inspiration and collaboration. By making the most up-to-date and advanced information in the computing world easily accessible, we are the source that computing professionals trust to provide high quality, state-of-the-art information on an on-demand basis.

Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics

The Visualization and Graphics TC (vgTC) promotes research in computer graphics, visualization, and virtual reality as well as the application of these topics to science, engineering, business, and the arts. Research interests include hardware, software, algorithms, and user interfaces. Specific topics of emphasis within the TC are visualization, computer graphics, and virtual reality. The TC has been responsible  for several special issues of Computer and IEEE CG&A, and is the sponsor of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and  Computer Graphics (TVCG).

Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing

The TC on Multimedia Computing (TCMC) is related to interest in all aspects of hardware and software systems that bring about the synchronization of a variety of different types of media such as audio, video, text, and animation to convey information.


ACM SIGGRAPH's mission is to foster and celebrate innovation in Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. The organization promotes its vision by bringing people together in physical, on-line, and asynchronous communities to invent, inspire, and redefine the many creative and technical artifacts, disciplines, and industries that are touched by computer graphics and interactive techniques.
