I am a Ph.D. holder in Computer Science from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland since 2006. My Ph. D. subject is ‘A study of the evolution of the models for document recognition written in Arabic within an interactive context’. I am holder of a Master in Modelling and Management Information Systems; and a Bachelor in Management Information Systems from the Higher Institute of Management of Tunis, Tunisia.
