The International Congress on the Enlightenment is the largest event in the field, and takes place every four years. Recent meetings have been held in Dublin (1999), Los Angeles (2003), Montpellier (2007) and Graz (2011). The 14th Congress will take place from 26 to 31 July 2015 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Congress facilities will be provided by Erasmus University Rotterdam, with tours and displays on local heritage coordinated by members of the Dutch-Belgian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.

The Congress is organized by the Organizing Committee of Dutch-Belgian Society of Eighteenth-Century Studies and is hosted by the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The Congress is preceded by an ordinary meeting of the ISECS General Assembly. Opening Markets includes theme-related sessions as well as plenary sessions featuring invited speakers. The Congress is organized into parallel sessions and round tables with keynotes elaborating on the subtopics. The Congress facilitates poster presentations. Preceding the Congress the organizers host an ISECS International Seminar for junior Eighteenth-Century scholars.

The scientific program is coordinated by an International Steering Committee made up of members of the Organizing Committee and eminent scholars from scientific institutes and universities in the world. A professional Congress Organizing Office is in charge of the practical aspects concerning the preparation, registration, communication and organization of the Congress, the accomodations for participants and the excursions and (partner)tours during and after the Congress.

The Scientific Steering Committee invites the submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentations at the Congress from January 2014. Abstracts must be submitted online by 31 December 2014. An individual may submit more than one abstract. Abstracts must not exceed 250 words. Presenters must be registered participants at the Congress.
