Dear dermatoepidemiologists and dermatology clinical researchers,

The European Dermatoepidemiology Network (EDEN) is a group of enthusiasts with a specific interest in the epidemiology of skin diseases.

Following the successful 1st EDEN Forum in Madrid 2017, it is our pleasure to invite you to the next EDEN Forum in Berlin in March 2018.

The EDEN Forum is an event intended to bring together physicians and scientists interested and engaged in all aspects of epidemiology, public health and health systems research, with a main focus on dermatology. It is especially aimed at young researchers.

Next year’s “teaching part” will be devoted to medical guideline development, kindly organized by Profs. Alexander Nast, Charité Berlin, and Jochen Schmitt, University Hospital Dresden.

The “presentations” part will consist of short presentations on recent, current or planned research projects; in addition, an interactive poster session will take place. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and networking.

Our attractive meeting venue will be the Kaiserin Friedrich Foundation Building, dedicated to medical training purposes, located close to Charité University Hospital, in Central Berlin, in walking distance from Hauptbahnhof (Main Station), the Government quarter, Friedrichstraße and Unter den Linden shopping areas and many hotels of all categories.

We invite you to submit abstracts on your projects, and we are looking forward to welcoming you in the exciting city of Berlin next March. As in other previous EDEN meetings, we aim to offer high value to participants, at a fair cost and without industry support.

The meeting has limited capacity, with registration of participants on a first-come first-served basis. If you don´t want to miss out on the opportunity to attend, please register soon.

Looking forward to meeting you in Berlin,

 

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Peter Elsner, Thomas Diepgen, Ignacio García-Doval, Sinéad M Langan, Tamar Nijsten, and Loes M. Zandwijk – Hollestein
