Universities, R&D Groups and Academic Networks

ICSOFT is a unique forum for universities, research groups and research projects to present their research and scientific results, be it by presenting a paper, hosting a tutorial or instructional course or demonstrating its research products in demo sessions, by contributing towards panels and discussions in the event's field of interest or by presenting their project, be it by setting up an exhibition booth, by being profiled in the event's web presence or printed materials or by suggesting keynote speakers or specific thematic sessions.

Special conditions are also available for Research Projects which wish to hold meetings at INSTICC events.

Current Academic Partners:


-     CLAMPIT project aims to develop a high-end decision supporting system that helps metalworking SMEs carrying out welding work to increase their efficiency by automatizing clamping design calculations. The application assists its users to find the optimum fixture design containing optimal clamping points and forces. In addition it includes a fast and efficient distortion prediction module incorporating LSND technology.



STEPMAN project aims to facilitate bidirectional communication throughout the CAx chain used by SMEs within SME association groups. This would allow information about products, machines and other production resources to be conveyed with a high level of integrity to enable an information-rich environment for the manufacturing activity.

Arrowhead is addressing efficiency and flexibility at the global scale by means of collaborative automation for five application verticals. That means production (manufacturing, process, energy), smart buildings and infrastructures, electro-mobility and virtual market of energy. Our proposal would be to present our involvement in the Virtual Market of Energy and the interaction with the Arrowhead services, the core of the project.

DataPipe is a research project funded by the Eurostars Program of the European Commission. DataPipe aims to develop a platform, toolkit and pipeline for the intelligent, rule-based selection, management, analysis, publishing and display of heterogeneous multimodal data in the oil and gas sector. It will create a flexible system to provide web-based visualization and decision support based on the analysis of extremely large datasets. The platform will be extensible to big data mining, analysis and display in a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors.
