DO-G Annual Convention in Oldenburg postponed to 2021

Dear members of the DO-G, dear convention participants,

It was with great regret that we had to realize that we are not able to host the annual convention in Oldenburg as planned and, therefore, have to cancel it for 2020.

In an extraordinary video meeting, the DO-G Executive Committee decided on the postponement of the annual convention in Oldenburg to the coming year 2021. We hope that by then the hosting of such a convention will be acceptable again and that we will be able to offer plenary talks, main topics and excursions in the way they were planned for this year's event.

The dates in question are September 15th – 19th, 2021 or September 29th – October 3rd, 2021. The availability of the location in Oldenburg is currently checked, and we will inform you about the new fixed date as soon as possible here on the website and by circular mail to our members.

Also, the general meeting of members of the DO-G announced for September 19th, 2020 must be postponed to a later date. Further details will be announced on our website and in the circular letter to members, which will be sent to you by post shortly together with this year's contribution invoice.

For all members and other interested parties, we would like to at least offer a small online program with interesting and up-to-date content on the originally planned convention weekend of September 19th/20th, 2020. Currently, we are checking the technical possibilities, and we will inform you on this website about further details as soon as possible. Please keep that weekend free for this new experience in the circle of the DO-G.

Of course, we hope to see you soon again personally at an annual convention.

Yours sincerely,

On behalf of the DO-G Executive and Advisory Committee
Dr. Wolfgang Fiedler
