No Events on The List at This Time
Dear participants of the digital 10th EHSF Conference 2021,
the EHSF e.V. and I personally want to cordially thank you for your contribution in making this year’s EHSF Conference a great and successful event. With 141 scientific contributions of high level and 688 participants from 52 countries, this jubilee event was the biggest EHSF Conference until now and … until the next one.
My cordial thanks also go to my partners at the Organizing Committee Profs. Gregor B.E. Jemec, Veronique del Marmol, Errol P. Prens and Thrasyvoulos Tzellos for their invaluable support for the organization of this event. I also thank on behalf of the EHSF e.V. the members of the Scientific Committee, the chairpersons of the scientific sessions, the members of the Poster Evaluation Committee, the 141 active contributors and our commercial organizer MCI and the technical support coworkers, who all contributed with their work towards the success of our Conference. I also congratulate the 5 finalists and the 3 awarded teams for their excellent poster presentations. The competition was exciting until the very end through the high quality of the submitted posters. The EHSF also thanks the nurses and the patients organizations, which took part at the specific sessions; it was a privilige to having you with us enriching our horizons.
The contributions of the Scientific Symposium together with the abstracts will be published soon in a supplement issue of our Association’s official journal, Experimental Dermatology.
The EHSF e.V. feels indebted to its – in-the-between – 300 members and, especially to its supporting members AbbVie and UCB for their continuous support. The 10th EHSF Conference recognises the great contribution of its commercial sponsors AbbVie, Incyte, Novartis and UCB for providing us with the required means to organize a digital event of this high quality level. Those of you, who have booked the postconference on demand sessions option can still follow this scientific event during the next months.
A special recognition is addressed to our international active partcipants and the sister societies in Asia/Australia, Canada and the USA for been 10th EHSF Conference partners through the active participation of their members.
The 10th EHSF Conference was an official event of the European Reference Network for Rare and Complex Skin Diseases. The Medical Association of Saxony Anhalt has accredited the event with 16 educational points.
After the conference is always before the conference. Therefore, I am glad to announce the 11th EHSF Conference to take place on February 9-11, 2022 this time – we hope – as a physical presence event in Potsdam/Berlin, Germany.
With kind regards
