CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Theme: “Access, Quality and Efficiency: Comparing international health care systems to improve health services”
on behalf of the German Network of Health Services Research, I am pleased to invite you to the 19th German Conference on Health Services Research, which will take place from
The theme will be “Access, Quality and Efficiency: Comparing countries' health care system performance for improved health services”. During the conference, we want to focus on “Health Systems Performance Assessment”, and notably how different health care systems or their building blocks can contribute to improving access, quality, population health outcomes and efficiency. In this context, we will ask how countries can learn from each other and their experiences in improving the health care delivery system.
At this year’s conference, for the first time there will be a series of sessions with oral presentations with exclusively English-language contributions. We invite international researchers in the field of health services research, and in particular young scholars, to present their work and exchange with German and international colleagues. Abstracts can be submitted on a variety of topics ranging from performance assessment, digitalisation in health care to quality and patient safety.
Well-known international researchers—and an exciting conference format—will enhance and facilitate professional exchanges. I invite you to attend the conference, submit contributions to help shape the discussions and use this opportunity to actively participate and share your work with colleagues.

Abstracts for Science Slam
This format appeals to researchers in the field of health services research who would like to present their research in a different format. In a Science Slam session, each participant presents their scientific work in a three-minute slam and may use any kind of supporting materials to convince the audience. The Science Slam aims to present research work in a different format than the usual scientific presentation. The audience will act as the jury and select winners at the end of the Science Slam. Prizes will be awarded to the three best slammers. Applicants can submit either current work (even if no results are available yet) or already completed work.
Abstract submissions for the Science Slam must follow the same guideline as abstracts for oral presentations/posters.
The congress will take place at the Urania Berlin ( https://www.urania.de/en), which is situated in the heart of the western part of Berlin, just a few steps from KaDeWe, Kurfürstendamm, Bahnhof Zoo, and the diplomatic quarter. The Urania Berlin is easily accessible by bus, tram or train. You can find more details on our congress website (https://www.dkvf2020.de/english-visitors.html).
We hope to see you in Berlin!
