VENUE

Jordan is a country of culture, beauty and surprising contrasts. It is an ancient land, yet a modern Kingdom, offering the discerning traveler fascinating diversity, safety and traditional hospitality. The unique geography, geology and climate make Jordan a perfect place for the symposium.

Amman, the modern capital of Jordan, was known in history as Rabbath Ammon and in Greco-Roman times as Philadelphia. The city is a busy commercial and administrative center with many fine hotels, restaurants, art galleries and museums. Amman is crowned by the Citadel, a hill with the ruins of the Temple of Hercules, a Byzantine Church and an Omayyad Palace. At the foot of the Citadel lies the Roman Theatre.
