Connecting the abortion care community, the Abortion Care Network (ACN) is the driving force behind the movement to de-stigmatize and normalize the abortion experience while offering support and training to the abortion care community. Founded from the merging of two abortion provider based organizations, the National Coalition of Abortion Providers and the Abortion Conversation Project, ACN has created a network of independent abortion providers, supportive allied organizations, and socially conscious individuals who are deeply invested in creating an environment where women who choose abortion, and those that provide care, are no longer harassed or shamed by the choices they make.

The Academy of Performing Arts (AMU) is a university level school of music, dance, drama, film, TV and multi-media studies. It was founded by the Presidential Decree of October 27, 1945. A year later, in the winter semester of 1946, it was opened for students. Several prominent artists and writers, namely Jindřich Honzl, Jiří Frejka, František Troster and others, had conceived the idea of the school itself during World War II. Professors of the older Prague Conservatory also supported the idea of transforming the former maestro school into a higher school at university level. Writers, artists and other film creators with practical experience in the film industry (namely Jaroslav Bouček, Karel Plicka, Otakar Vávra, Ivan Olbracht, Vítězslav Nezval, A. M. Brousil and others) watched over the school's future curriculum, trying to make it responsive to new trends in post-war film development. Later the Film studio and the theatre Disk, which belonged to the Faculty of Theatre, were added. The theatre Disk is also used by the Opera Studio of the Faculty of Music. When TV came into being, the Faculty of Film began to serve its needs by offering study programmes for TV specialists.
Founded in 1980, ACOI (Associazione Italiana Chirurghi Ospedalieri, Italian Association of Hospital Surgeons) is among the most influential scientific associations in Italy, pursuing technical, political and ethical objectives. Abstract has developed a PLONE-based solutions for the ACOI institutional portal: the portal structure is conceived for ease of use and accessibility, an achievement that we regard as quite impressive, in the light of the diversity of issues in the Association's focus. The portal is meant also as a scientific reference for ACOI members as well as for the general public. The compromise between exhaustiveness and clarity has been carefully balanced.
