WORKSHOPS – controversial topics in dermatology

The always popular "controversies" workshops enable interactive presentations and discussion in a small group atmosphere.  These are not "comprehensive update" sessions, rather the topics are chosen to enable world leaders to discuss diagnostic / treatment / pathogensesis issues which may not yet have even reached the publication level.

  • Workshops are only open to full congress registrants
  • The size of the Workshops will be limited to a maximum of 55 to facilitate an interactive atmosphere.
  • There is no additional fee, however tickets will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis; please register early to avoid disappointment as each participant is allowed to register for only 1 Workshop. 
  • If you wish to participate in workshops, please indicate your choice on the registration website. 
  • Workshops listed as full are no longer available
  • Participants can check on site for availability due to cancellations if desired.
