Hi,

I'm not sure but maybe you could declare it in your org file as:

#+MACRO: BEAMERINSTITUTELONG My long and detailed Institute
#+MACRO: BEAMERINSTITUTESHORT Short Institute

And change the export code as follows:

\\institute[beamerinstituteshort]{{{{beamerinstitutelong}}}}\n

But I didn't tested it, it is just an idea that comes up reading your mail.

Since orgmode is a volunteer effort and the list is a relatively low
traffic list, often posts are answered after a few weeks. :)

Let me reword your issue, but my understanding of LaTeX is limited so
please correct me if I am wrong.

You want to specify your affiliation with the institute command. AFAIU
the \institute command is declared in the header of a tex file. So I am
a little confused by your use of properties in org. Shouldn't something
like this after the "#+NAME:" and "#+AUTHOR:" directives work fine?
