COVID-19 Update

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Due to the crisis of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we have been forced to hold the conference virtually. This decision was made jointly by all congress presidents and is based on the numerous and once again increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases in European countries and worldwide, and the resulting travel restrictions and quarantine regulations, especially for our overseas visitors.

An online survey was conducted among the entire congress faculty, in which a clear majority expressed their support for a virtual meeting. Many members of the faculty are unable or unwilling to travel for a variety of reasons including travel bans imposed by their employers. Some sponsor companies have also indicated that they would prefer a virtual format because of these difficulties and due to internal restrictions on their operations.

All chairpersons and speakers will be present virtually, selected discussions and lectures will take place live, and questions can be asked via chatrooms. An accompanying virtual industrial exhibition, a poster exhibition as well as an interactive networking area and social wall offer a host of opportunities to inform, display and network online. The sessions will also be available on demand after the congress. The digital conference enables all meeting objectives to be achieved, including direct communication – just in a new format!

We are confident that the interactive virtual meeting will represent unforgettable professional and personal experience for all delegates and we look forward to welcoming you ONLINE in April 2021!

With kind regards
Prof. Paolo Ascierto – Prof. Claus Garbe – Prof. Axel Hauschild – Prof. Ketty Peris – Prof. Mario Santinami

10th World Congress of Melanoma and 17th EADO Congress

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We have the great honour and pleasure to invite you to join us for the 10th World Congress of Melanoma in conjunction with the 17th EADO Congress which will be held under the auspices of the Melanoma World Society (MWS) and European Association of Dermato-Oncology (EADO).

The first World Congress of Melanoma took place in Venice in 1985. Since then the conference has become a well-established meeting which is held every four years. In 2021 the event will celebrate its tenth anniversary and we are very pleased that the congress will return to Italy for this meeting.

The scientific programme will provide rich educational opportunities for all delegates. The field of melanoma will be covered as well as Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC), Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Actinic Keratosis, Cutaneous Sarcoma and Cutaneous T- and B-Cell Lymphoma.

The congress offers a great opportunity for young doctors and researchers to familiarize themselves with melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. The entire spectrum of questions related to melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers will be covered. Epidemiology, prevention and early detection, diagnostics and staging, surgical and radiotherapy and systemic and intralesional therapies are core themes of the meeting.

Rome, the host city, is one of the most attractive cities in the world and a major touristic hotspot for visitors from anywhere. We are confident that the World Congress will represent unforgettable professional and personal experience for all delegates and we look forward to welcoming you in Rome!
