The Symposium is to be held in one of the wine regions of Southern France, Languedoc-Roussillon, at a privately-owned country estate called Sagnes, located on the outskirts of Beziers and surrounded by the vineyards and olive trees that make the charm of this area.

Accommodation will be in Beziers, with a shuttle service to and from the conference center.

The Dickens Dinner will take place on site, and two optional evenings will be proposed to delegates: one on board of a barge along the Canal du Midi, one of the greatest engineering achievements under the reign of Louis XIV; another meal will take place at the Cistercian Abbey of Fontfroide, following the visit of the Abbey and also of nearby Narbonne, one of the main cities of Gaul during the Roman Empire.
