Next Conferences

DEMHIST holds conferences at least once a year, in various places. These conferences offer a platform to raise and discuss professional issues. To ensure the quality of our conferences, DEMHIST has developed guidelines for hosts and an evaluation form for participants of its meetings. ICOM offers grants to young members who would like to participate in an international committee meeting such as DEMHIST.

As well as hosting its own conferences DEMHIST also informs its members about relevant conferences held by other similar organisations.
