ESCD Congress 2020
17–20 June 2020
Building on the successes of previous Congresses held every two years at a major venue in Europe since 1992, the Congress of the European Society of Contact Dermatitis is designed to provide a forum for experts from around the world to present and discuss cutting-edge issues. Delegates are anticipated to include clinicians, scientists and members of the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
The meeting program from June 17-20, 2020 will reflect areas of current scientific and clinical interest in all aspects of contact dermatitis and allergic skin disease. There will be opportunities for free communications, either as oral or poster presentations. Time will be available for informal discussion. The exhibition space will provide an ideal opportunity for exhibitors to interact with leaders in the field.
The Conference Centre Beurs van Berlage is situated in the heart of Amsterdam with easy access by air, rail and road. June is an excellent time to visit Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands.
We hope that you will be able to join us.
Marie-Louise Schuttelaar, Chair of the Organizing Committee
