As previously announced European Conference of Family doctors/ DEGAM Annual Congress 2020 will be held in a live online setting to accommodate the current restrictions related to the COVID-19 epidemic. Apart from the virtual lectures (LIVE STREAM) we are planning “POSTER DISCUSSION” sessions.


Each POSTER included in the “POSTER DISCUSSION” will have its own discussion chat box associated for people watching your POSTER. There will be also a “facilitator” to initiate the discussion so you should make sure to be online at the time of your POSTER DISCUSSION to answer possible upcoming questions and make it a lively conference.

Since the known A0 one-page poster format for a physical stand is not easy to digest in a virtual conference we have decided to run it with electronic POSTER document in PDF format.

The posters will be displayed in special POSTER DISCUSSION sessions during the whole virtual conference and, after until the end of January 2021.


POSTERS selected for the Virtual Library should be submitted the same way as a document in PDF format. The posters will be displayed in the Virtual Library during the whole virtual conference and, after until the end of January 2021.

My abstract should be presented in the Virtual Library. How is the presentation in the Virtual Library organized and where can I find the programme?
  • There is no specific time for the presentation in the virtual library. Conference participants can watch the pre-recorded presentation at any time. There will be a chat box next to the presentation to answer questions. You do not have to be present at the chat box the whole conference. You can check regularly and answer the questions. The presentations in the Virtual Library will be divided by topics and presentation forms. The Virtual Library is not available at this moment. It will be available during and after the conference.
