A preliminary draft of the schedule of events for the 2018 International History Olympiad has now been posted here. The competition will be based at the John F. Kennedy School, and students will stay at the nearby Berlin-Wannsee Youth Hostel, where we have reserved rooms.
We can confirm that all of the competitions listed in this draft schedule will take place, though we reserve the right to rearrange the order if needed. Sightseeing plans are subject to change, but the final sightseeing arrangements will strongly resemble what is shown here on the schedule.
Additionally, we will be making arrangements for the Closing Ceremonies, Guest Speakers, and Special Events on a continual basis from now through Spring 2018. An updated draft will be posted in November 2017 with any special arrangements that have been concluded by then. A final schedule will then be available in Spring 2018. Contact director@historybowl.com for further questions on the program.

Note: We are exploring the possibility of an additional track of Olympiad eligibility and enrollment for students interested in competing in an expanded program of historical simulations. We will have further information on this option available by October 2017. If we do pursue this option, there would be at least two additional simulations that would be open to students who have enrolled in this track. This track would only be open to students with prior Model United Nations and/or historical simulation experience.
