You can find further information about the 54th German Historians’ Congress in our press kit, which you can download here: [Link to Press Kit]. There, you will find detailed information about the congress. An overview of the specialist sections and special events can be found at: [Link to Media Toolkit].

All congress rooms are equipped with the usual presentation technology. Your event will be supervised by a member of the congress team. Please be in your room at least 15 minutes before the start of the event. The person in charge will be happy to receive your presentations (in ppt or pdf format only) on a USB stick and play them on the PC. In order to complete the set-up process quickly and to relieve the supervising person, we strongly recommend that section leaders bring all panel presentations on a USB stick. Please do not submit presentations via email; these will not be considered.
The sessions are scheduled for a maximum of 150 minutes. We would like to ask you, especially in view of the follow-up events, not to exceed this time frame.
If you are planning handouts or similar, please note that there are no printing and copying facilities in the congress buildings. Please use the copy shops in the vicinity.

In the last few days and weeks, we have received a lot of questions about online connections. In principle, these are possible, for example via Zoom, but at the same time they require more technical equipment. Therefore, please bring your own notebook and set up your virtual meeting room yourself. In order to make the lecturer(s) audible in the room, you will need an adapter that connects the VGA and audio cable in the lecture hall with the HDMI connection of your notebook. Only a very limited number of these adapters are available. They will be issued to those section leaders who have already indicated a need for online connection when submitting their section proposal in September 2022. To facilitate communication between section leaders and online presenters, you will need either a mobile webcam or a wireless lapel microphone. The latter is also available in very limited numbers.
