was concluded in Bellaria (Rimini), Italy.
The Championships consisted of a pairs tournament and a teams tournament. The Pairs Championship comprised 3 qualifying sessions, followed by a 2-session final and a consolation tournament. The Teams were played as a Swiss tournament with a knockout ending for the top teams: after twelve 10-board rounds, the top four teams advanced to the semifinals (and then to the final and the 3rd-place playoff - all played over 32 boards), while the rest played 4 more Swiss rounds.

Two years later, Aachen, Germany welcomed 397 pairs and 97 teams from 30 countries! This time was a record success as 456 pairs and 101 teams took part.
