All Previous Congresses

The International Congress of Historical Science started in 1900. It is held every five years and has already been held 21 times since the original congress. Being the most influential academic activity of historical science, it enjoys a reputation of “Olympics of historians”. The biggest number of participants in former sessions has surpassed 3000; though it is the first time for the congress to be held in Asia, we presume the participants this time more than any of former congresses.

Former congresses are listed below with their host years and cities, and 22nd Congress will be held in Jinan.
