Conference Details


A large part of the congress material will still be available to you after the congress. Nevertheless, please register for the congress in order to have access to the congress material afterwards.

You can register until the congress and also during the congress. Registration is done as usual via the congress website. Your congress material also includes access to the on-demand material after the congress. If you are unable to attend the congress, you can still register for the congress in order to have access to the congress material after the congress.

To attend the GfV Congress you need a good and stable internet connection, your computer/laptop, tablet or cell phone, loudspeakers/headphones and a microphone.  The use of a camera is optional. In any case, make sure you are using the latest version of your browser. Especially Internet Explorer under version 11, problems may occur more often.
For more information on the technical requirements, please also refer to the user quide.

We will be able to provide you with all sessions online. You will also be able to see the schedule of each type of sessionon the Congress website.

For all sessions, the speakers and chairs will be live (even if the presentations are not live). You can ask questions via chat during the presentations. At the end of each presentation, the chairs sift through the questions, read them out and the speakers answer them. After each session, a "break & meet the speakers" session is planned (min. one chair + speakers).  This is to provide time for in-depth discussion. The access data for the break & meet session will be displayed at the end of the session of the main programme.
For further discussions, the chat room of the digital congress will also be available at any time.

The GfV's digital congress will be accompanied by a virtual industrial exhibition, although this will not be shown as a 3D exhibition. Rather, companies will have the opportunity to present themselves and their products on their detailed pages. Just like at a face-to-face event, you can view the material on display and talk to the stand personnel. Our numerous sponsors are looking forward to your visit!  Please also visit the industry symposia as well as the Meet the Industry sessions of our industry supporters!

Contact us directly via the chat icon that you will find on all pages of the digital congress.

The certification of the digital annual conference of the GfV 2021 will be applied for at the State Medical Association of Thuringia. You will find further information here in due course.
Furthermore, certification has been applied for at the Academy for veterinary further education - Federal Veterinary Association.

Please also note that attendance at the congress after the congress period will not be recognised by the State Medical Association or the Academy for Veterinary Further Education and will therefore not be certified.
