Submission of Abstracts
In the current tense situation, the German health care system and all those working in it face special challenges. The DOG would like to do its part to alleviate possible deadline pressure and has thus postponed the deadline for the submission of abstracts for freepaper oral sessions, posters and videos is therefore postponed to 14 April 2020 at 10.00 a.m. CEST.
Detailed Instructions for Authors can be found here.
In this context, we would like to point out that the obligation to publish applies for all contributions presented at the DOG 2020. Generally, contributions are published in the scientific journals of the DOG. Authors wishing to publish their lectures in higher-ranked journals may apply informally to the Recording Secretary at the DOG Office for exemption from the obligation to publish.
Authors are merely required to name the contribution and the journal in which it is to appear. The submittal/acceptance of an abstract does not exempt its submitter from the necessity of registering for the congress and paying the associated participation fees.
