Letter from the Chair of the EADV Scientific Programming Committee
As Chair of the Scientific Programming Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 32nd EADV Congress in Berlin. We are thrilled to present an exceptional programme that not only showcases the remarkable advancements in our field over the past year but also provides practical insights on how to integrate these innovations into your clinical practice.
The programme will feature more than 600 speakers from more than 50 countries, who will deliver engaging talks across 180 sessions. As in previous years, these sessions will be categorized into “updates,” “training and education,” and “controversies,” encompassing a wide spectrum of topics within our speciality. In addition, we have created new formats including a “Focus on session”, which will cover topics including new technologies, sclerotic skin diseases, and fragile skin, as well as a “Face-to-face” session, offering an open platform to discuss commonalities and differences in the management of skin diseases among hospital-based dermatologists and private practitioners.
We have invited 9 world-class speakers to deliver Plenary Talks addressing hot topics of our speciality such as pruritus, melanoma, topical gene therapy, STI vaccines, mastocytosis, skin of colour and big data medicine.
This year we have received a record number of abstract submissions (over 3400) and have meticulously selected the best ones to be presented in the late-breaking news session (36), as Free Communications (72), or featured in a newly created oral e-poster presentation session (48). The remaining abstracts will be available for viewing on the Congress platform and on the dedicated e-poster area at the Congress.
Our Congress will continue to offer “hands-on workshops,” a cherished tradition. Last but not least, “subspecialty sessions” will be held for the first time on Wednesday morning and on Saturday early afternoon, starting and concluding the Congress.
Finally, for those who are unable to come to Berlin, we offer the possibility to follow the Congress virtually, as the entire educational content will be live-streamed and available on the Congress online platform.
Please join us in Berlin to make the 2023 EADV Congress a unique and unforgettable event!
