Dear Colleagues,

As Chairmen of the “G20 ADI-ADMG Dermatology International Congress” and on behalf of the ADI (Ionic Dermatological Association) and of the ADMG (Association of Dermatologists of Magna Greece), we are very pleased to invite you to the city of Palermo, Italy, the city that will host this meeting from 12 to 14 november, 2020.

The Symposium programme will be characterised by a selection of relevant topics proposed by high-level Italian and foreign speakers. Dedicated tracks will focus on clinicopathological correlation, contact allergy and occupational dermatology, skin diseases and systemic inflammation, dermato-oncology, as well as dermatosurgery.

The event will be spread over 3 days (Thursday to Saturday) with many tracks of Review and Updates stimulating Plenary Lectures for all to attend;

Free Communications sessions highlighting the latest research and findings, and other sessions dedicated to young dermatologists. In addition, there will be plenty of space dedicated to new technologies and innovative cosmetics.

Palermo is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. A world heritage of humanity with its different styles and characters that blend together in a sort of cultural overlap.

We invite you in a colorful, lively city, rich in history, where you never run out of things to do or see; if anything, you will run out of time to complete the adventure in this extraordinary Sicilian city.

We are waiting for you in Palermo for a magnificent stay of science, art, and more…
