The celebration of 10 years of the Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) will take place at its birthplace in Berlin, Germany, on 22-25 August 2012. The conference is a joint project between G-I-N, ӒZQ and AWMF. The specific theme for this year’s conference is ‘Global Evidence – International Diversity’. In this context, strategies and successful examples of international collaboration will be addressed. The programme is currently being finalised. Four hundred abstracts have been received across 44 countries and the Scientific Committee aims to ensure that the diversity of the international audience is represented across all sessions. Major topics will be latest developments in defining standards of quality of guidelines, in the methodology of creating the evidence basis for guidelines, in patient involvement in guideline development and in implementation and knowledge management. The inspiring programme will comprise plenary sessions, workshops, panel sessions, short oral presentations and posters, all provided by an international panel of invited speakers and abstract submitters. G-I-N conferences are a perfect opportunity to meet and network with new and old colleagues across disciplines from all over the world who share our daily challenges. They are a unique venue for worldwide sharing of knowledge and experience about guideline development, dissemination, adaptation and implementation. We hope that you will join us and use this occasion to develop and strengthen lasting collaborations with people from a wide range of countries and organisations.
