The Summer Palace of Empress Maria Theresia at Laxenburg, Austria, is the home of a unique experiment in international negotiations. The Processes of International Negotiation (PIN) Program is a group of international scholars whose secretariat is based at the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). The purpose of the PIN group is to conduct and organize research on a broad spectrum of topics related to the processes of international negotiation. Its objectives include disseminating new knowledge about negotiation as widely as possible, developing networks of scholars and practitioners interested in the subject, and generally advancing the improved study and practice of negotiation internationally.

The PIN Steering Committee is composed of seven scholars and practitioners from seven different countries and seven different disciplines:
