The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) http://www.ifip.org/

IFIP is a non-governmental, non-profit umbrella organisation for national societies working in the field of information processing. It was established in 1960 under the auspices of UNESCO as an aftermath of the first World Computer Congress held in Paris in 1959.

Today IFIP has 56 national organisations as Full Members, 3 Corresponding Members and 9 Affiliate Members, representing countries from all regions of the world and
international organisations. IFIP maintains friendly connections to specialised agencies of the UN system and nongovernmental organisations (UNESCO, ICSU, IFAC, IMACS, IFORS, IMEKO).

Technical work, which is the heart of IFIP’s activity, is managed by a series of Technical Committees. Each of these committees has two major types of activities:Events and Publications.

IFIP’s mission is to be the leading, truly international, apolitical organisation which encourages and assists in the development, exploitation and application of Information Technology for the benefit of all people.
