Swiss Informatics Society SI


The Swiss Informatics Society (SI) promotes professionalism amongst all who work in the field of information technology (IT). SI has about 2000 members and is the largest professional association in Switzerland, typically representing those persons working in IT and those who are promoting our goals. SI members typically have either academic degree in IT or have acquired their knowledge and experience in specialised courses and through practice. Members may also be those who just wish to support the activities and goals of SI – without necessarily being IT professionals themselves. Through its Special Interest Groups, SI supports and promotes a wide range of areas in information technology and networks of computer scientists and IT professionals to research and educational institutes, as well as to the industry. Events organised  by the Swiss Informatics Society such as the annual Swiss Digital Summit, connect SI and its members to the international IT Community.


SI is a member of and is represented by following national and international bodies:


ICTswitzerland: The umbrella organization of ICT organizations in Switzerland

CEPIS (Brussels): Council of European Professional Informatics Societies

ECDL Foundation: The world’s leading skills certification for computing and digital literacy

IFIP: International Federation of Information Processing Societies

 “I am a member of a special interest group in SI and I am delighted that I can actively participate in the future development of our association. In this way, I have gained access to many attractive topics and lifelong learning programs. This enables me to pursue my professional and private interests in the field of computer science. The SI events, the meetings of the special interest group, and SI’s online offerings allow me to network with many SI members as well as with interesting personalities in the field. My membership in SI has seriously contributed to my credibility when promoting my own professional goals.”
