This regular conference series was initiated in 1977 in Poland (Chair: L. Sobczyk), 20 years after the first conference devoted entirely to hydrogen bonding in Ljubljana (Chair: D. Hadzi). It was followed by 17 similar meetings in western and eastern Europe. Göttingen (2011) is the fourth Horizons conference site in Germany, after Munich (1978), Marburg (1985), and Berlin (2003). Since the meeting in Berlin, the conference is preceded by a workshop organized by and for graduate students. During 1-2 days, they are introduced to the topic by a few introductory lectures and given the chance to discuss and present their most recent research results to their peers.
