La Société des études sur le Moyen-Orient et les Mondes musulmans

Founded on 12 July 2014 (as published in the Journal Officiel), this association seeks to encourage academic studies on the Middle East and the Muslim world, in particular through the organization of an annual or biennial congress. At the same time, it organizes palaeographical and philological seminars for advanced students in our field of research. SEMOMM is also responsible for receiving registration fees for the GIS Congresses, gifts from private individuals and sponsors, and public sector grants.
