SIBIU, FORMER EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE
The Ninth Edition of the RoEduNet Conference will be hosted in Sibiu,
about 300 km N-W from the Romanian capital Bucharest.
Sibiu was the European Capital of Culture in 2007.
The Citadel of Sibiu was for centuries one of the largest and best fortified
in Europe. Sibiu is beautiful; indeed a delight for the eyes. Eerie eaves shaped
like eyes peer down from the buildings that line the narrow, medieval streets.
At the center of it all stands the proud fortress-church, built by the original
German settlers in Gothic sturdiness.
History surrounds Sibiu like a defensive wall. The outlines of Sibiu's many
churches have dominated her sky line since early times. Sibiu is dotted with
many areas of parkland, intimate gardens and attractive tree-lined boulevards.
Sibiu's pulling power is stronger in spring, the season of chestnuts in blossom,
and the start of various festivals. Sibiu, and Sibiu area, contains the largest
concentration of tourist attractions in Romania.
During the Conference, WLAN access will be available through the ULBS
Public Hotspots or via EDUROAM, so bring your laptops with you! An Internet Access point with
several computers will also be available.
The Conference will be held at "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu's
Rector's Building and across-the-street
Faculty of Letters and History ground
and first floor. Maps are available
