The DOG congress is going online

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the conference landscape significantly this year. Many events had to be cancelled, others were postponed as it had become impossible to conduct them in the usual manner.

The DOG has decided not to cancel its event for 2020. Rather, we will hold it at the scheduled time, in a different, online format.

This constitutes a significant change in the history of our event. However, the Executive Board of the DOG currently sees no alternative. While the German government is currently easing some of the lockdown and anti-pandemic measures, major events like the DOG 2020 are still subject to considerable restrictions and conditions that prevent the congress from being held in the usual manner.

While we regret that we will not be able to conduct our DOG Conference  as a face to face meeting and meet all of you in Berlin, we are certain that together we will experience a fascinating, albeit slightly different, conference.
