25-28 May 2005
This international sandstone symposium will take place in Vianden (Luxembourg) in May 2005 and follows the sandstone symposium that took place in Doubice (CZ) in September 2002.
The idea was brought to Luxembourg by a participant to the Czech symposium. The "Groupe d'études ayant pour objet la conservation du patrimoine naturel de la Petite-Suisse luxembourgeoise", an advisory group created by the Luxembourg Government to promote the conservation of remarkable natural sites in the Luxembourg sandstone area, the Mullerthal, also known as the "Petite-Suisse luxembourgeoise", launched the idea to organize the next sandstone symposium in Luxembourg.
In the frame of the Luxembourg precidency of the Council of the European Union in 2005 and with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Environment and the National Research Fund.
