on behalf of the ESPD and the Austrian Working Group of Pediatric Dermatology associated with the Austrian Society of Dermatology and Venerology (OEGDV) it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you as the Meeting President of the 20 th ESPD Annual Meeting which will be held on the 11 - 13 th of June 2020 in Vienna, Austria.
The excellent scientific programme with emphasis on recent advances in the field of pediatric dermatology is addressed to dermatologists, pediatricians as well as general practioners. Chairs and speakers are international well known experts in the field. The programme will be organized in two parallel sections and has seven plenary Keynote Lectures. Opportunities for presentation at this meeting are available to all participants. Selected papers can be presented as adjunct to parallel sessions, and posters in structured poster presentations at lunchtime. Young and rising stars will be given the opportunity to present late-breaking news. And we also wish to honour our teachers in pediatric dermatology all over Europe. Further details will be published shortly in the programme section of this website.
Vienna is located in the heart of Europe and well known for its numerous historical tourist attractions. The meeting will take place in the Hofburg Convention Center, which fulfills all high standards of a modern convention center. It is part of the former imperial palace which hosts also several museums. The Stephansdom, the State Opera House, the National Library and other sights are in walking distance. A welcome reception will take place on the first evening in the conference center to which all delegates are cordially invited.
Please take care of the deadlines for abstract submission and registration to be announced soon.
I do look forward to welcome you in Vienna!
