Update #6: November 2010

Together with Gery Gabler, our coordinator and webmaster, we are proud to announce that we just went live with the new IDS website!

Please give a look at www.dermoscopy-ids.org You will find new contents and a brand new style of our platform. In particular, a number of new sections are now available, including tutorials, pubmed news, and a dermoscopy podcast section.

The podcasts were developed with the help of Ralph Braun in the role of coordinator and we are really very curious to verify if this new way of delivering education in dermoscopy will meet the interest and appreciation of our members.

Finally, please mark on your agenda the next meeting of the International Dermoscopy Society that will be held in conjunction with the International Society for Digital Imaging of the Skin and the International Confocal Working Group.
