Chairman’s Message

Greetings from the Scientific committee, DERMACON 2018!!.

Team DERMACON 2018 welcomes you all to the 46th National conference of Indian association of Dermatologists, Venereologist & Leprologists. It is with pride and pleasure we announce the theme and vision of our conference:

‘Take home dermatology - Podium to Practice’

We envisage and design DERMACON 2018 as a platform for exchange of ideas and knowledge, from where you can take home dermatology and put it into practice immediately effectively.

In a time where information is at our finger tips, take homes from conferences are a rarity, conferences have become places of greeting and meeting only, we are lighting the lamp to set forth a change. Looking back into the yesteryears, conferences were much awaited and attended eagerly with an enthusiasm to know new and more. But with the present day developments what is lost is mostly forgotten - true exchange of ideas and learning and gaining from each other. DERMACON 2018 is to be a venue for reinventing what we have forgotten, redefining what we have lost and paving way to a newer dimension for learning in dermatology. With this vision we have planned our scientific sessions in a revised format with justification to the true essence of clinical dermatology, benefitting practicing dermatologists, academicians and residents.

In view of the change in face of dermatology with remarkable interest in sub specialties, we introduce three parallel CMEs - General dermatology, Paediatric dermatology, Dermatosurgery and Aesthetic dermatology. Furthermore, to make our sessions effective, concise and precise and truly take home, we have planned workshop sessions by expert faculties, in the morning hours of conference days, without overlapping any other scientific sessions. Various sessions are structured and planned with a promise to deliver and justification to session heads - review & updates, spotlights, expert forum.We are also proud to offer platform for scientific communications by our esteemed delegates.

Looking forward to meet you all…..

Criton Signature
