One of the outcomes was that Florin Streza was appointed to Chairman of the Symposium. It was also decided that the symposium will be held from the 6th to the 14th of June 2015.

The infrastucture of the museum was looked at in detail. On the grounds of the museum, there are a suitable conference building, 2 excellent restaurants, 2 buildings with rooms with in total 70 beds, as well as a small hotel with 43 beds. On a distance of about 2 km there is a Hilton hotel. Sibiu has its own airport.
Investigations are ongoing to have a mill tour to the south west of Romania, as well as trips to some fortified churches and perhaps to a medieval town. This in addition to a visit to the beautiful city of Sibiu.
