Dear Members, Colleagues,

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has kept most of us very busy throughout 2020 and will continue to do so. In order to provide the best possible planning security for all involved, the DGTI Board of Directors has decided to also hold the 54th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Transfusion Medicine and Immunohematology in digital format.

We will incorporate your feedback and the experiences of last year's congress in order to provide you with a unique conference experience once again. The program is currently being adapted to the digital format, including shortening the scientific sessions to 60 minutes.

Detailed information will be successively made available online over the next few days. As usual, we will also provide daily updates at www.dgti-kongress.de or simply use our conference newsletter: www.dgti-kongress.de/index.php.

We look forward to an exciting professional exchange with you in September!

Your DGTI Board
and your Conventus Team

ePosters will either be displayed in the "Selbststudium" area or presented during an "ePoster sSession" on Thursday, 23 September. The self-study area will be available for all attendees at any time and will also be available on-demand until 31 December 2021. The ePosters of the guided sessions on Thursday will also be made available on-demand after the congress along with a short explanation of about 3 minutes.

Preparation of an oral presentation

  1. Please prepare your presentation slides as usual in PowerPoint in 16:9 landscape format.
    Indicate your potential conflict(s) of interest on the first or last slide of your presentation, if any.
  2. We ask you to pre-record your presentation. This has many advantages for planning the sessions and ensuring that your presentation can be heard and seen in case of connection problems.

    In order to record a video, we suggest one of the following tools:
  • PowerPoint: In the newer versions, recordings can also be made. Make sure to export the presentation as a video file at the end.
    > To the instructions
  • OBS: an open-source recording tool that can save locally. Since the tool can also be used for live streaming, its operation is somewhat more complicated.
    > To the explenatory video
  • Mac OS: There is a tool called "Screen Recording".
    > To the instructions

Please note the following:

  • Test microphone and webcam settings before recording.
  • If possible, record in daylight or another suitable light source.
  • Avoid ambient noise, remove sources of interference (telephone, pets etc.).
  • Record in small/not empty rooms (carpeting has a positive influence on sound quality).
  • Please enter your name in the footer of your presentation ("Insert"> "Header and Footer").


Transfer of your presentation

An UploadCenter will be set up for the submission of presentations and will be available soon. You will be informed of the access data. Please be prepared to upload your presentation by 2 Sept 2021 in order to guarantee a smooth running of the digital conference.

  • Test microphone and webcam settings before recording

    • PowerPoint: In the newer versions, recordings can also be made. Make sure to export the presentation as a video file at the end.
    • OBS: An open source recording tool that can save locally. Since the tool can also be used for live streaming, the handling is a bit more complicated.
