The governance of knowledge seems to be the Scientific Policy most able to creating value with regard of human and its evolution in cultures and civilizations. The duty of good governance is a consideration of the transfer of knowledge related to scientific and technological progress. Intrinsically, this process requires a system of knowledge organization and its management by implementing knowledge production and its influence in society.

In the present case, rely across all paradigms, know-how and specific knowledge to scientific disciplines and especially those in Humanities and Social Sciences, allows finding a dynamic of Knowledge Organization for dissemination, sharing and enhancement of knowledge. This new transdisciplinary orientation allows including concepts, tools and singular perspectives in the digital field and information technology.

With this new focus on the Knowledge Organization from the perspective of « Digital Humanities », the objective of the ISKO-Maghreb Chapter is to contribute in understanding the factors that organize knowledge and phenomena that affect the information society. Actions to be undertaken by the ISKO society must take into account socio-cultural, cognitive and economic in the strategic management of knowledge. Towards the knowledge society in line with the Digital Humanities, it should be seen in its dynamic, its content and its interaction with science, technology and transdisciplinary associated to universities, companies and politics.

In this new context « Digital Humanities » related to aspects of the « Knowledge Organization” and modalities of its management », a first orientation is pedagogical trying to answer the question « What is known about the knowledge and its organization in the context of Digital Humanities? « . Then the question is evolving towards societal issues of knowledge, researches and applications, to provide clarifications towards the convergence of approaches and practices for the common use of digital platforms. Education, science, culture, communication and technology remain the major themes covered by ISKO Maghreb, for the development of the knowledge organization, collective intelligence and the perspective of the Digital Humanities.

In a friendly atmosphere, hospitality and open to exchange, the international symposium ISKO-Maghreb was thought to enhance the Scientific Society « ISKO » with the universities, the practitioners in the Maghreb countries and the world.

The international Symposium ISKO-Maghreb will be held in its sixth (6th.) edition in Morocco (Al-Hoceima) in May 2017, after the five successful editions.
