Important announcement concerning Corona Virus: histoCON 2020 cancelled

We are very sad to announce that histoCON has to be cancelled due to the current situation concerning the corona virus. As stated in our FAQs on our website, we have reassessed the situation on a daily basis. Based on the current recommendations by the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institute, we had to make this decision after intense discussions on the last days in our team.

This decision was not easy to make – but first and foremost, everyone’s health and well-being is more important than the ambition to make histoCON happen as planned in May 2020. We hope that our decision will meet with understanding. We want to thank all those who worked so intensively and beneficially and wanted to contribute to the success of histoCON. We highly appreciate your work and effort!

We are currently considering different options to achieve the goal of histoCON, which is to bring together young people from all over the world, sharing their thoughts and to look back and to think ahead. Please understand that this will take time. We will publish all updates concerning histoCON on this page.
