Joint Worldwide Headache Congress 2021

Two of the most important headache societies, the International Headache Society (IHS) and the European Headache Federation (EHF), will merge into one association joint international headache congress 2021, planned from September 8th to 12th in Berlin.

In order to combine the advantages of both worlds, we decided on a hybrid version of the congress.

What does “hybrid” mean?

This means that some participants, speakers, chairs and industrial partners will be on site in Berlin and other participants will have the opportunity to participate in the event online in real time or on request, thereby expanding the field of participants.

Further information can be found on our official congress website: ⧉


Be sure to take a look at the diverse pre-program for the main topic “Headache Science to Optimize Patient Care”. The Scientific Program Committee has worked hard to put together a current affairs program, striking a good balance between young and distinguished speakers, all of whom are experts in headache science.
