The annual meeting of the DGNC goes digital!

Dear colleagues,

The corona virus has already affected many parts of our everyday lives but of course, many national and international events as well– It is now our job to deal with and master the challenges we are faced with.

Of course, you have been wondering whether the annual meeting of the DGNC can take place in Lübeck, Germany from 21–24 June. Since the local authorities in the state of Schleswig-Holstein will not allow events with more than 1,000 participants until the end of August, our annual meeting, at least as we know it, cannot take place either. However, we do not want to let go of the scientific exchange, which is so important to all of us! Therefore, we are happy to inform you that we are currently preparing our annual meeting as digital conference.

What does this mean for you? Which benefits are there?
•    The time frame, structure and schedule of the conference stays the same
•    Excellent programme, outstanding national and international speakers
•    Virtual change of rooms and accessibility are possible anywhere and anytime 
•    Presentations are accessible even after their live presentations 
•    Conference contents will be available even after the conference 
•    Live discussions, chat rooms and further interactive activities
•    Exchange and chat with your colleagues and friends in a separate lounge area
•    Innovative presentation of our industrial partners 
•    CME certification analogous to the actual conference
•    No need for travel and accommodation expenses
•    Reduced registration fees 

You will receive further and more detailed information (registration, submission of presentations, log in to conference etc.) within the next days. As always, we will also inform you via the conference website You can also register for our newsletter:
