The International conference ” Les enjeux de la Culture et du Tourisme à l’ère du numérique: Illustration de l’intelligence culturelle ” took place on May 14 and 15, organised by the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering of the Université des Sciences et de la Technologie d’Oran Mohamed-Boudiaf (USTO-MB), from a cross-disciplinary perspective treating subjects like the importance of cultural tourism nowadays, and the need to reorganise its conception, in order to adapt to the new digital era and the claims of sustainable economic development, within the framework of the 2030 Agenda.
The event was a great success in terms of participation and discussion, with the participation of more than fifteen experts on the subject, each of them referring to one of their fields of study, such as Dr. Nadir Benmatti, whose presentation we have already mentioned on our Facebook page. From the FACM, we understand that the promotion of intelligent tourism, related to the issues and communities of the Euro-Mediterranean region is essential to continue approaching the different Mediterranean peoples, while at the same time fostering greater cultural diversity, as well as the respect and interest of each community towards the rest of peoples that constitute this historical Mediterranean unity.
The changes that characterise the current global context are the result of the globalisation, which has transformed the rules of international trading, leading to a reconfiguration of geopolitical and economic spaces, particularly through the widespread use of new information technologies. In this new reality of easier access to information, the promotion of culture, and consequently of cultural tourism, is particularly relevant, which explains the importance and success of this international conference.
The FACM would like to thank the Université des Sciences et de la Technologie d’Oran Mohamed-Boudiaf (USTO-MB) – organiser of the event-, and the Université de Constantine 3, the Circles of Algiers and Nice, CREI.corp, the Institut Français d’Algerie, Tosyali Algerie and E2ID, for working in partnership with us to bring this valuable conference to a successful conclusion.
