6th CONGRESS OF THE SKIN INFLAMMATION & PSORIASIS INTERNATIONAL NETWORK
The 6th edition of the SPIN – Skin Inflammation & Psoriasis International Network Congress will be held in Paris from Thursday April 25 to Saturday April 27, 2019 at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, Paris.
With the expansion of the former Psoriasis International Network into SPIN, the scope of the network and its triennial congress has broadened to include other major chronic inflammatory skin diseases. This will allow to benefit from the benchmark of PIN’s actions and achievements in psoriasis and put it to the service of other diseases and we hope to transfer the know-how acquired on psoriasis (highest standard in issues such as quality of life, high burden and co-morbidities) to other chronic inflammatory skin diseases, in particular atopic dermatitis.
The global theme for the congress will centre around ‘Value Creation For Chronic Inflammatory Skin Diseases’. Value creation goes beyond knowledge and application of disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment, although this of course forms the basis of care delivery. We will expand the classical congress programme (pathogenesis, diagnosis/comorbidities, treatment, specific subgroups) to sessions that also focus on ‘organisation of a multidisciplinary setting’, ‘health economic aspects of new treatments’, ‘outcomes and real life data (registries)’, ‘examples of a valuable learning cycle (cases from which we learnt to do better in the future)’, ‘how to build an effective (care) team?’, ‘turning doctors into leaders’, ‘shared decision making’ …
In this edition, we also propose some new concepts in the meeting. We will start the course with an educational basic-average course on psoriasis for residents/junior dermatologists to enhance the involvement of residents/young dermatologists in SPIN activities. With the advent of the technological era, the intrinsic value of the congress has changed: interaction between experts from all around the world is the most valued pearl. Due to this, we have incorporated 2 additional sessions: «How do I treat», consisting on the presentation of interesting and challenging cases focusing on key points on management/diagnosis/therapy that a panel of experts will discuss and will add their perspective to the clinical cases briefly presented; and the «SPIN forums», where speakers from all around the world will share, through short presentations, their different views and perspectives from a selected number of hot topics.
The scientific programme was built by the Psoriasis Group of the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, in collaboration with the SPIN Scientific Committee.
It is our great pleasure to invite you to join this endeavour.

24th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD)
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The Italian Society of Dermatology (SIDeMaST) is honored to host the 24th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) in Milan from June 10-15, 2019. It will be held under the auspices of the International League of Dermatological Societies.
We are very proud that this prestigious event will again take place in Italy, as it has been over 40 years since we last hosted the world’s dermatologists. Milan has a rich historic heritage, dating back to when it was the capital of the Western Roman Empire. While in Milan, Leonardo da Vinci, the quintessential Renaissance artist and scientist, drew his iconic Vitruvian man and painted the world renowned Last Supper. The city is adorned with many gorgeous buildings, from both the past and the present. Today Milan is a dynamic and trendy city, a renowned international centre for fashion and design as well as the arts and science.
There are convenient connections to the other great cities of Italy, including Venice, Florence and Rome, as well as the lakes region.
Mi.Co. – The Milan Congress Venue is ideal for such a great Congress and it will comfortably accommodate the WCD participants, Sponsors, and Exhibitors.
The Meeting will focus on major breakthroughs and advances in Dermatology, ranging from clinical practice to research, technology and innovation. There will be many opportunities for experienced clinicians as well as young dermatologists, nurses and allied professionals. Outstanding dermatologists from around the world will play a vital role in every WCD session as chairs, co-chairs, and speakers.
We will also offer a varied social programme to provide an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. We are confident that our scientific organisation, together with the well-known Italian hospitality, will make the 24th WCD a memorable event.
We look forward to hosting you in Milan in 2019.
