Semantic Technology Institute (STI) International is an association of global expert members in the fields of semantics and services, located in Austria.[1] It has members mostly from Europe, but also from South Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore.

STI International is governed by an Executive Board, and has an overall Board of representatives from all members, plus several distinguished STI Fellows: Dr. Michael Brodie, Prof. Dr. Guus Schreiber, Prof. Dr. Jim Hendler, Dr. Mark Greaves, and Prof. Dr. Rudi Studer.

STI International is the organizer of several important annual international conferences in the fields of semantic technologies and future internet: the Extended (previously called European) Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) along with the ESWC Summer School on semantic technologies, and the Future Internet Symposium (FIS). The institute also initiates and organizes smaller events and symposia in Austria and world-wide.

The association owns a spinoff company, STI International Consulting und Research GmbH, which pursues the interests of the members in research (under the name STI Research) and in education/training (under the name Semsphere).
