The conference “SIIE” aims to develop the dialogue between experts and researchers from public and private sectors, to acquire basic and experimental on Information Systems (IS) and Economic Intelligence (EI) (or Competitive Intelligence in English acceptance and terminology). This promotes, in a risk environment, technologies related to economic intelligence. The dynamic of EI depends on the control of knowledge and requires competences to design the best strategies and ensure that decision-makers take the right decisions.

The international conference SIIE will be held in its seventh (7th.) edition in Marrakech in April 2017, after the six successful editions. This edition is organized by CIEMS and IEEE Technology & Engineering Management Society (TEMS), and sponsored by the Universities of Maghreb and Europe countries. The theme of SIIE is « Trends in Technology Management and Economic Intelligence ».

Since 2008, the six proceedings and editions have allowed academic researchers and economic actors to achieve completed projects. The goal of SIIE is to continue in this way by creating opportunities, ideas and innovative ways to enhance projects, and build connections between universities and industries on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea.

SIIE'2017 includes keynotes, tutorials, authors’ sessions and industrial panels, animated by experts, to identify new approaches and knowledge in economic intelligence, applied research and feedback. This will allow the emergence of new clusters in competitive intelligence.

Within a convivial and comfortable framework, as Morocco knows so well how to offer such a framework, the SIIE conference has always been thought to promote the weaving of trust networks between actors in academia, industry and politics, thus contributing to the training of the SIIE scientific community. The expert recommendations and advices will help the SIIE community to find solutions to their many questions and problems.
