IDS Newsletter #9, January 2021

Dear IDS members, friends and colleagues, 

Happy New Year! 

Welcome to the 9th issue of our new IDS newsletter.

As the vaccination programs are starting to accelerate around the world, our dream of being able to meet with all our members again seems to be getting closer and closer to becoming a reality. Although there is a lot of work left to do until then, we are doing our best to continue with our research projects and to create new and exciting learning opportunities for you. In this edition of the newsletter, we would like to inform you about our new podcasts, our ongoing studies that you can participate in and, of course, we are very happy to announce our first Virtual World Congress of Dermoscopy!

IDS Events


Virtual World Congress of Dermoscopy
Since it wasn’t possible to host our 6th World Congress of Dermoscopy in Buenos Aires, Argentina as planned this year, we have decided to postpone this meeting and instead host our first Virtual World Congress of Dermoscopy. The dates will be the same as previously planned, June 10-12, 2021. Thanks to our sponsors, we will be able to offer very affordable registration rates. We also have a very exciting program prepared, which will be announced very soon on the congress website: www.wcd2021.com!
