Budva offers a unique blend of natural beauties, as well as cultural and historical heritage, which makes it one of the oldest urban centres on the Adriatic coast. The intensive three-day programme included 30 stimulating sessions from speakers originating from over 30 countries worldwide.

The Budva meeting could not have happened without the tremendous efforts, dedication, and enthusiasm of the Symposium Chairman, Dr Predrag Štilet, who despite the many difficulties, brought made this event an unforgettable experience for everyone. Before and after the event, some of the participants had the opportu- nity for easy day trips along the coast to the walled town of Kodor, a medieval jewel, or over the border in Croatia to the World Heritage site of Dubrovnik.
