♦ Description :

The world is changing” according to Michel Serres in his book “Petite Poucette” (March 2012) and in his detailed speech at the French Academy (November 2017), he argues by: “It should then draw the consequences of this change of the space that affects the human species with the emergence of the “new technologies” of information and communication – in particular by trying to establish a new balance between the material element and the intangible element. “.        Historically for Humanity, two major inventions that have profoundly changed the knowledge organization (KO) while associating culture and the transmission of knowledge: it is about writing (around the fourth millennium BC), then printing (in the fifteenth century by the invention of Johannes Gutenberg). Today, with digital technology, it is a major new invention that is imposing and having profound repercussions on the knowledge organization system (KOS) and its transmission of knowledge, on teaching and pedagogy, and on society and its world economy oriented towards the intangible.

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, we are witnessing the emergence of a young science called “digital sciences” to designate the information and communication sciences on their hardware and software components. The digital sciences revolutionize knowledge in relation to its technological means, as well as social links (or humanity) with its relationship to knowledge and its organization.

To the changes brought about by digital sciences, society as a whole must adapt and consider skills that reinvent tomorrow’s social relationships and its relation to knowledge: what we call the dynamic and interactive Web (web2.0 and web3.0), the Social networks that allow the creation of educational, professional and societal communities, the Collective Production of Knowledge and its relation to the collective intelligence, the risks of the Proliferation of the information and its consequences like the misinformation, the “fake news” or invasion of privacy. All of these changes have a potential and profound impact on education, culture, society and knowledge organization systems (KOS).

Faced with the advent of the digital sciences, the governance of knowledge seems to be the scientific policy best suited to the creation of value with regard to Man and his evolution in cultures and civilizations. The task of this governance is to take into consideration the transmission of knowledge related to scientific, technological and communication progress. Intrinsically, this process of knowledge transfer requires a system of knowledge organization and management that implements the production of knowledge, its actors and the digital sciences for its influence in society.

The objective of the ISKO-Maghreb chapter continues to contribute to understanding the factors that organize knowledge and the phenomena that affect the information society. The actions to be undertaken by the scholarly society ISKO will have to take into account socio-cultural, cognitive and economic aspects in the strategic management of knowledge. Towards the knowledge society, knowledge must be seen in its dynamics, content and scientific and technological interactions with academics, business and politics (actors and institutions).

In this context, a first orientation is pedagogical to try to answer the question “what do we know about knowledge, its organization and its mutation?”. Then, the question evolves towards the societal challenges of knowledge, in theory and in practice, to provide clarifications to “what convergence of KO (Knowledge Organization) and KM (Knowledge Management) approaches that organize knowledge and know-how? “. Education, Digital Sciences, Culture, Information and Communication Sciences, remain the major themes covered by ISKO-Maghreb, for the establishment of knowledge organization, management skills, collective intelligence and Digital Humanities.

In a friendly, warm and open to exchange, the ISKO-Maghreb learned society was designed to strengthen the “ISKO International” Scholarship Foundation with academics, practitioners both in the Maghreb countries and in the world.
