The World Congress of Teledermatology 2020 is going virtual!
Dear colleagues and friends,
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our model of face-to-face meetings as authorities have imposed travel restrictions and physical distancing which are increasingly stringent. To adapt to the current situation, the Board and Committee members have decided to transform the 8th World Congress of Teledermatology, Imaging, and Artificial Intelligence for Skin Disease into a fully virtual meeting that will continue to offer the possibility for educational exchanges, scientific news and best practice updates while protecting the safety, health, and well-being of all congress participants.
The World Congress of Teledermatology is here, and it comes hand in hand with what will be the next transformation of our specialty, Artificial Intelligence. This 8th World Congress of Teledermatology, Imaging, and Artificial Intelligence for Skin Disease offers the best chance for exchanging experiences, knowledge and future uses of technologies aimed at providing care for patients suffering from skin conditions. Let us enjoy listening to the latest developments from experienced colleagues from around the globe, understand how AI is being tested and applied for better and faster diagnosis of skin diseases, and experience with us what the dermatology departments of the future will look like. These and many other topics will be addressed and deeply discussed in the virtual sessions by more than 30 top experts from United States, Europe, China, Australia, New Zealand, Latin-America, and other world regions.
We have adapted the structure of the Congress to make this online format more user-friendly with the virtual sessions being available on-line from 26th October, 2020. Following this, 2 live, virtual afternoon sessions will take place on 5th and 6th November, which will allow for live interaction and discussion forums.
Registered participants will still be eligible to receive the number of CME credits attributed to the virtual meeting, and authors whose abstracts are accepted will be able to present them as e-posters for virtual consultation.
Join us online for the 8th World Congress of Teledermatology, Imaging, and Artificial Intelligence for Skin Disease! We are convinced we will all enjoy this opportunity to gain the highest scientific and technological knowledge in the field.
We thank you in advance for your support in making the Teledermatology Virtual World Congress a success!
