According to the organisers, the event began in 2006 with 700 participants and 69 lectures and workshops; in 2010, 104 lectures and workshops were offered. A unique feature of the conference is the extensive children's and youth programme in the form of a holiday camp organised by children and young people from the associated association Teckids e.
