We make every effort to make all sessions available online.

The speakers and chairs are live for all sessions (even if not all of the presentations are live). You can ask questions via chat during the presentations. At the end of each session, the chairs review the questions, read them out and the speakers answer them. For some sessions, there will also be a 15-minute discussion room after the session, where you can exchange ideas as in a video conference. A lounge area will also be available at all time during the digital conference for further discussion and communication.

As usual, you already received an email regarding the acceptance or rejection of your abstract.

The digital conference will be registered at the medical chamber in Thuringia for CME points.

As during a face-to-face meeting, the point will be automatically transferred by Conventus to the medical chamber after the conference. In order to receive CME points, you need to have accessed the digital conference platform and attended the scientific programme during the course of the conference.

Please also note that the certification of the 72nd Annual Annual Meeting only applies to the live programme. Accessing the on-demand material after the conference is not certified.

If you are attending from Austria, you will receive a certificate of attendance with the CME points for the days on which you attended the digital congress and were logged into the digital congress website. You can then submit this to your Austrian medical chamber.

As every year, there is a programme book which you can download on the website of the digital conference. There is also an abstract book. All abstracts will be available online on the German Medical Science (GMS) homepage and on the conference website.
