The IWH is a very popular conference location.
If you plan to have a conference or meeting at the IWH, make sure that you contact us for a date well in advance.
Week ends, especially, are very popular.
We can happily reserve up to three possible conference dates for you for a limited period, to give you time to discuss and agree a final date with your colleagues. We would, in this case, kindly ask that you let us know your decision as soon as possible.
We are eager to do everything feasible to fit your conference or meeting into our schedule.
To help us:

  • Would you also consider holding your meeting during the week?
  • Do you have some flexibility with your conference dates?


Symposia at the IWH are conferences supported by Heidelberg University. Prerequisites for inclusion in the IWH's symposia program our board of curators has to give its approval.

Colloquia etc.

Colloquia, conferences, workshops, discussion groups, etc., are carried out in the sole responsibility of the event sponsors. Application for these conferences can be submitted at any time. Please note that you should check with the IWH secretariat in advance for a possible meeting date. The IWH provides advice for cost calculation.
