About the IAHR Congress

Helper Meeting

Helpers in the XXI Quinquennial IAHR Congress that are scheduled in the first half of the Congress week (Sunday through Wednesday) are asked to participate in the instructional meeting Saturday, August 22, 5 p.m., in LG 1 HS 3 (ground floor).


All seminar rooms are equipped with projectors. Laptops will be provided for all sessions by the organizers. Please note that presentations can only be accepted in Microsoft Office PowerPoint  format. To avoid delay in switching from one speaker to another, please avoid any other format. We ask that you send all presentations  to us ahead of time, so they can be installed on the notebook used for your session. Please do so until August 21, 2015.

If you need additional equipment (microphone, loudspeakers, overhead projectors), please notify the organizers until August 15, 2015. Unannounced equipment needs cannot be provided for. 

Ticket Availability

Please note that contrary to originally planned and communicated, there will be no daily or on site tickets available during the IAHR World Congress. Due to the large number of participants already registered for the Congress, this measure has unfortunately become necessary to avoid overcrowding.

Final Program Now Available

The final academic program of the IAHR Congress is now available. Go to Academic Program to find out when your session is scheduled.

Download the Session Guide         Download the Abstract Book.

Please note: An updated version of the Abstract Book and Session Guide will be uploaded to the website just prior to the Congress.


Speaker Registration is now closed. If you did not register until May 15, 2015, your paper cannot be included in the final program.

Visitor registration for the Congress is open until June 30, 2015. Registration is provided by Thuringia Tourism.

Register now.

Business Meetings

Register the business meeting of your national association, IAHR networks and affiliate associations to the IAHR during the World Congress until June 30, 2015. Get in touch with the organizers.
