Since 1900, historians from around the world have been organizing their congresses to discuss the most pressing topics, present the results of their research and build international cooperation network. In 1926 they established the International Committee of Historical Sciences (ICHS), as a non-governmental organization composed of national committees representing the member countries and specialist commissions devoted to specific research issues. The main purpose of the Committee is to promote the historical sciences through international co-operation. The Committee was entrusted with organizing subsequent congresses every five years, in collaboration with historians of the host countries. In the past, the congress took place in Poland only once, in 1933 in Warsaw.
