The outbreak of COVID-19 has transformed our day-to-day lives as we knew them. All of us have been personally affected, whether by uncertainty or loss. While a number of conferences have been canceled or moved, which we understand and support, the DASIL Board of Directors and management has decided that DASIL 2020 will proceed as planned in mid-November 2020. However, it will be with changes to our original plans. It will be a virtual congress.
We believe in the power of convening people, whether virtually or in person. We see this as a moment for embracing the opportunities technology gives us to connect. So, in the light of the recent events, we decided that our 9th DASIL World Congress will become the first virtual edition. Staging DASIL 2020 virtually this year will help us adhere to our commitment to keeping our communities safe while making the conference experience accessible to a much larger national, and global, audience. Necessity is now teaching the world more than ever the importance of digitization. There is no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning will revolutionize and shape the future of medicine as we know it today. To keep up with our aim of offering you an unparalleled scientific programs, and our leading role as one of the most important meetings for medical dermatology and aesthetic medicine worldwide, we will pick up where we left off in 2019 and expand our scientific program even further.
The 9th DASIL World Congress: Virtual will surely be a one-of-the-kind event you will not want to miss. DASIL 2020 will be packed with benefits that underline its special role as one of the international conferences worldwide. Once again, we offer several free and CME-certified training courses on the latest topics in general medical and surgical dermatology, aesthetic medicine, presentations of innovations, discussions, commented video demonstrations, and much more.
Besides the contributions of our world-renowned expert faculty, we look forward to hosting a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibition and brand new side events tailored to all kinds of specific interests, such as round-tables and workshops delivered by our industry partners. And it wouldn’t be DASIL if you didn’t make valuable new connections. Virtual networking will enable all participants to reconnect with friends and build completely new relationships.
We thank you for joining DASIL once again and look forward to seeing you virtually from November 13 – November 15, 2020!
For all of you who were looking forward to visit vibrant Mexico City in 2021, the 10th DASIL World Congress will take place live in Mexico City, November 3-6, 2021!
More Information will follow shortly – stay tuned!
