SKIMA'09 Exciting Moments


SKIMA'2009 focuses on the Management of “Software, Knowledge and Information” in wide range of applications which are currently of interests and having practical benefits for society.

The International Conference SKIMA'2009 will take place at Fès, Morocco (October 21 - 23, 2009) after the successful two previous editions (Chiang Mai in 2006 and Kathmandu in 2008).

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and industrial experts in knowledge management, software Engineering and Information Systems to share their knowledge, ideas and experience. It is intended from the beginning to be an open forum between researchers from developed and also emerging countries, to communicate and discuss their latest research findings, but also to propose possible solutions to better enhance their future collaboration. This conference has been started in an international collaboration context and received a great support from the European Commission and the AsiaLink framework.

The fruitful exchange and mutual contacts between the participants during the previous events of SKIMA have led to some common exchange and research projects such as the last ERASMUS-MUNDUS eLINK project that involves researchers from ten different countries (BANGLADESH, BUTHAN, CHINA, FRANCE, HUNGARY, ITALY, NEPAL, PAKISTAN, THAILAND and UK).

During each edition of SKIMA, a strategic session is dedicated to future collaborations and to the exploration of new ways to achieve them. Representations from research agencies, local ministries and big companies are regularly invited to join this session. As an example, the Minister of education of Nepal, a representative from the EU, and the CEO of Nepal Telecom had joined the session of SKIMA 2008 in Kathmandu last year.

This year, SKIMA'09 will be held after the CPI'09 conference on Design, Production and Innovation that will be held in the same city at the beginning of the same week. This will give to SKIMA and CPI participants a unique opportunity to interact, build relationship and exchange ideas about new applications and methodologies. A common CPI/SKIMA session will be held on the first day of SKIMA 2009. SKIMA participants who are interested in CPI topics and would like to attend, will have special and affordable rates.
