The symposium will be held in Alba Iulia, at the ‘1 Decembrie 1918’ University, located inside the medieval citadel of Alba Iulia. Located in the heart of Transylvania, at the midway between Cluj-Napoca and Sibiu –  two important economic and cultural centres of Transylvania – Alba Iulia has won the  privilege of being “the soul capital of the Romanians”, place and seal of a historical  moment consecrating the union of  Principalities - Moldavia, Wallachia and Transylvania  – as a single  state: Romania. Ancient Roman town and the medieval capital of the Transylvanian Principality, Alba  Iulia is also a historic centre of Romanian culture and spirituality that produced some of  the first printed Romanian books (the New Testament - 1648) and which also hosts one of  the famous codices in the world – Codex Aureus (sec. IX), preserved alongside others  manuscripts and rare incunabula in the Batthyaneum Library. Looking for places and facts to enrich his mind and soul, the tireless researcher will not  refuse the pleasure to meet history at home in Alba Iulia. The whole city is an open air  museum inviting you to a simultaneous excursion in a Roman Castrum and a Vauban  fortress recently restored by municipality will provide lasting memories in a setting where  nothing is missing in order to make one feel a witness of the past.  5th edition 16-18 May Alba Iulia - 2013
