Submission of Abstracts
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.
In this context, we would like to point out that the obligation to publish applies for all contributions presented at the DOG 2017. Generally, contributions are published in the scientific journals of the DOG. Authors wishing to publish their lectures in higher-ranking journals may apply informally to the 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.
