Message of the Director General

sahraoui sofiane General Director - sahraoui sofiane

Dear Members of the IIAS family,
Dear Partners, Dear all,

Welcome to our new Web home! A new virtual display and presence that hopefully will convey to you the new dynamic of IIAS and its affiliate organizations. By redeveloping all of our Web sites, our objective is not only to enhance their graphical display and navigation but to create a powerful tool for communicating with our members, our partners and all parties interested in what we do. In time, these sites will be integrated with our back-office systems (conference & event management, finance, marketing, etc.) to create a seamless infrastructure that streamlines our operations, enables better access to our services, and enhances our reach to relevant parties.
