DiMiMED - International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine

Welcome to our 9th DiMiMED Conference!
(The new date will be published within the next weeks)

Report of the virtual DiMiMED conference 2020
"Coping with COVID - Combating the Catastrophe and Dealing with the Disruption"

The 8th DiMiMED International Conference took place on Monday and Tuesday, 16th and 17th November 2020.  Like the “mother” MEDICA event, the 2020 Conference took place virtually as a result of restrictions arising from COVID-19.

Notwithstanding the technical requirements for hosting such a Conference under current circumstances, the organisers, Messe Dusseldorf and Beta Verlag Publications were “up to the challenge”, and the 2020 DiMiMED International Conference had the highest number of attendees in the eight-year history of the event. In total, there were 250 attendees distributed over 37 countries and 5 continents.
