The third was held in 1997 in Cheboksary, the capitol of the Chuvash Republic. Chuvash is a small republic located along the Volga River, about 14 hours by train east of Moscow. The fourth meeting was in Montreux, Switzerland in 2002, the fifth was in Tashkent, Uzbekistan in 2005, and the sixth was in Italy in 2008.
