A.P. Ershov Institute of Informatics Systems

A.P. Ershov Institute of Informatics Systems is a part of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and is located in one of the best scientific environments in the Soviet Union, namely in Akademgorodok (Academy Campus), 25 km south of Novosibirsk, the "capital" of Siberia, the vast and rising territory with many natural resources and growing industry.

A. P. Ershov Institute of Informatics Systems (IIS) was founded in April 1990.



Founded in 1986, the Information Systems Laboratory has become a major focal point in the international research community. It combines expertise in knowledge representation and reasoning, database systems, net-centric information systems, and conceptual modeling. Its grand research challenge is to succeed in the transition from traditional information systems, such as information retrieval systems, database and workflow management systems, to semantically rich, large-scale, adaptive information systems. Such systems will be characterized by large-scale semantic interoperation, massive distribution, and/or a high level of autonomy and self-adaptation.

Fraunhofer IAIS

Fraunhofer IAIS focusses on research and development on innovative systems for data analysis and information extraction, in software and in hardware. From sensor data to business intelligence, from media analysis to visual information systems: Our research allows companies to do more with data.

Free University of Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has been a renowned cultural, scientific and commercial centre for many centuries. It was here, in 1880, that VU University Amsterdam first opened its doors to students. VU stands for 'Vrije Universiteit' which means 'Free University'. Here, 'free' refers to freedom from state and church interference.

VU University Amsterdam was established in 1880 by orthodox protestants. Nowadays it aims to be inspiring, innovative and involved. Throughout the past century, the university has continued to expand. It now comprises twelve faculties and has teaching facilities for 19,000 students. 

Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena

Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena was founded in 1558 as the State University of Thuringia, a role it serves until today. In 2006 FSU had an enrolment of more than 20.000 students in a wide area of subjects like medicine, biology, law, economics, mathematics, computer science and informatics, etc.

Institute for Applied Informatics - University Leipzig

Based on the Higher Education Law of Saxony (Article 105), the InfAI was recognized as an adjunct institute on 14th October 2008 by the University of Leipzig under the auspices of Prof. Dr. iur. Franz Häuser. The legal recognition has allowed this registered association to act and work as Instiute of Applied Informatics e.V. at the University of Leipzig.

MODUL University Vienna

The Department of New Media Technology at MODUL University Vienna conducts cross-disciplinary research on knowledge acquisition, semantic and geospatial web technology, human-computer interaction, visual analytics, and natural language processing, with focus on collaborative systems and knowledge extraction. The group showcases research results through award-winning Web portals and social media applications, including the Media Watch on Climate Change.

Universidad Politecnica de Madrid


The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1996, although the majority of its centres are over hundreds of years old and were founded in the 18th and 19th centuries. Each of them maintained its independence until being grouped together to form the UPM. It is no exaggeration to state that over one and a half centuries great part of the history of Spanish technology has been written by the Schools of Architecture and Engineering. They have been during a lot of years nearly the only and in some cases actually the only schools. All of the important personalities in the area of teaching and research passed through the respective centres as students or lecturers.


Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona was founded in 1968. The founders aimed to establish four principles of autonomy: freedom to select teaching staff, admission available to all students (but with a limited number), freedom to create its own study plans and freedom to administrate the University's capital. It is therefore a young university, but in its short history it has moved forward at a rapid pace.

University of Aberdeen

The University of Aberdeen is Scotland's third oldest and the fifth oldest in the UK. Aberdeen is an international university built on serving one of the most dynamic regions of Europe. With over 13,000 students, and over 3000 staff, we are at the forefront of teaching and research in medicine, the humanities and sciences.

University of Economics, Prague

Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze - University of Economics, Prague (UEP) is the sixth largest Czech university, founded in 1953. It consists of six faculties. The Department of Information and Knowledge Engineering (DIKE) is organisational part of the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics, and was founded in 1990.

University of Huddersfield

Intelligent, high performance, reliable computer systems are fundamental to solving grand challenges in areas such as transport, health, security and energy. The Centre for High-Performance Intelligent Computing (CHIC) aims to research and develop new methods and technology in computer science that will underpin solutions to these major societal challenges.

Within the centre, research related to semantics is concerned with large-scale semantic reasoning, curation, preservation and evolution of linked data, repair/cleaning of knowledge and data, and applications in ambient intelligence.
