On behalf of the Local Organising Committee,
It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the XLI Symposium of the International Society of Dermatopathology (I.S.D.P.) will take place at The Westin Hotel, Cape Town from Thursday 15th October until Saturday 17th October 2020.
This prestigious meeting has never before been held on the African Continent.
The educational impact of the Symposium will be enhanced by a pre-congress Education Day for Registrars and Fellows on Wednesday, 14th October.
The Local Organizing Committee has assembled an outstanding international Scientific Committee, which includes luminaries in the field of Dermatopathology.
It promises to be both exciting and of the highest standard, with lectures by leading international figures in the field of cutaneous pathology.
A significant portion of the programme will be devoted to important conditions such as melanoma and cutaneous lymphoma. In addition to lectures spanning a wide range of other topics, and will include live videomicroscopy tutorials.
We believe that the programme will be of interest not only to specialist Dermatopathologists from around the world, but also Histopathologists, Dermatologists and Medical Oncologists from State institutions and private practices across South Africa and from other African countries.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Mother City in 2020.
