Welcome Greeting

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Israeli Society of Dermatology & Venereology (ISDV), it is a great pleasure for me to invite you to join the 2019 Annual Meeting of our society, which will be held on the 15-17th of May 2019 in Eilat, Israel. We are proud to announce that on this occasion we shall be celebrating the 40th anniversary of our yearly meetings!

Participants will be offered an exciting scientific program including all aspects of our specialty, ranging from basic science to clinical practice. The congress will feature highly respected, internationally renowned speakers who will share, discuss, debate and dissect significant new developments and scientific advancements impacting the future of our specialty. All sessions – from keynote speeches to e-poster discussions will be orchestrated by experienced session chairs. Simultaneous translations into English and Russian will be provided throughout the Congress. Opportunities for presentation at this meeting shall be made available to all participants: slots for oral presentations of submitted papers are foreseen within the main body of each meeting session, and structured poster presentations will take place during session recesses.

This year, the 40th Anniversary meeting of the ISDV will also host the German-Israeli Dermato-Venereological (GIDV) society meeting, that will deal with various fields of dermatology which complement the topics to be discussed at the ISDV meeting.

In addition to the scientific part of the meeting, there will also be ample time to meet friends and colleagues during various social events and explore Eilat and its magnificent surroundings. Eilat is a beautiful resort at the edge of the desert, on the shore of the Red Sea. The town offers many tourist attractions and the surrounding nature will provide indelible memories to visitors. The cloudless sky and crystal clear sea with magnificent desert mountains in the background have led to the saying that “In Eilat everyday is a SUNDAY”.

Dan Hotel in Eilat is one of the most beautiful hotels in Israel, designed by the worldwide famous architect Adam Tihany. The food served in the hotel is known nationwide as a memorable culinary experience.  The extraordinary venue of the meeting will be a tribute to past and present members of the ISDV and to the guest lecturers that have contributed to the development of the specialty in Israel and beyond.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Eilat

Alex Zvulunov
