27th EADV Congress

Date 12 September to 16 September, 2018
Paris, France
Distinguished colleagues,
My dear friends,
The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology has chosen one of the most beautiful congress cities in Europe, Paris, to host its 27th Annual Congress in 2018.
We have been working tirelessly to bring you a full and exciting programme that will showcase the best of clinical expertise in dermatology and venereology.
This Congress will build upon the scientific programme developed over the past three years in a freshly-structured thematic session format with various tracks designed to meet, or hopefully even exceed, your expectations. With many opportunities to further develop your skills and continuing medical education, you will not have to search hard to satisfy your interests.
One of the greatest strengths of our Congress is bringing so many talented and up-and-coming professionals with different backgrounds together. Although we are a European society, we welcome international colleagues and speakers from over a hundred different countries to our Congress: an opportunity to network with new acquaintances as well as meet up with lifelong colleagues from North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia again!
In addition, during specific sessions -and please watch out for these- participants will have the opportunity to improve exchanges and collaborations with nurses; their critical role and importance in the management of patients with skin diseases is undisputed. The Patient Society Village for patient associations is there to allow us to better understand their particular expectations, wishes and needs. Everybody is also invited to visit the EADV Resource Centre to discover the variety of educational and fostering activities, research grants and scholarships provided by the EADV to its members.
Finally, the exhibition space and the various satellite symposia present an opportunity to get in touch and exchange with industry, whose presence and collaboration are important for the development of our specialty and the success of the Congress. Paris will not only become our reference educational home for a week, it will provide us with countless opportunities to explore a special place which has a 2000 year history, an extravagant social scene, cultural attractions, with arts, music halls, opera, as well as fashion, style, world-renowned cuisine and wines.
The congress centre is a 10 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe where the Champs Élysées unfolds; and just outside the centre’s doors is beautiful Paris with his characteristic six and seven story high white stone buildings on wide, tree-lined boulevards and avenues, handsomely executed according to the plans of Baron Haussmann’s. The beauty of the city inspired creativity, among others, of Pissarro, Toulouse Lautrec, Utrillo, and Claude Monet, and nurtured the minds of Baudelaire, Apollinaire, Balzac and Molière. We anticipate that the combination of excellent educational sessions and culture in Paris will allow you to take new knowledge home and inspire another type of energy in the performance of our skills and disciplines.
My very best wishes to you all and warm greetings,
Prof. Luca Borradori
EADV President (2016-2018)
