Recognising and redefining the stature and role of ‘Posters’  as an important mode of professional communication, DERMACON 2018 presents with a new outlook for E posters. Posters will be selected by a blinded process and all the selected posters will be evaluated by separate teams of expert faculty prior to the conference. ‘Pearls from Posters’ will be our focus session where excerpts from posters will be presented and discussed by an expert faculty.
