The Symposium will be held at the Corum Convention Center situated in the heart of the old city of Montpellier. Founded in 985, Montpellier has become a renowned University Center.
It is the perfect place for an enjoyable stay, with hundreds of restaurants and bars in the narrow streets of the 18th century town center, as well as with the impressive Neo-Greek neighbourhood Antigone created by the Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. With more than 420.000 inhabitants, today Montpellier is the dynamic capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon, a renowned wine region located at the confluence of the Mediterranean and of the Massif Central mountains.
You’ll enjoy an excursion to the nearby Roman city of Nimes, the Medieval towns of Aigues-Mortes and Carcassonne, and the Camargue, Cevennes and Pyrenees Natural Parks.
