Dear Colleagues and Friends

In May this year the Board of the ILDS was invited by the local Organizers of the 22nd World Congress of Dermatology to visit Seoul to see the progress they are making with their sterling efforts for 2011 to offer you everything you would expect to experience at a World Congress of Dermatology.

The organizers have been working very hard to ensure that the program will cover all aspects of dermatology in general as well as particular aspects related to the site of the Congress in Korea.

Of course, the Scientific Program, chaired by Professor Wolfram Sterry, is the driving force behind the World Congress and I am sure you will find this to be exciting and innovative with invitations currently being extended to leading dermatologists throughout the world.

I and my fellow Board Members were highly impressed by what we saw in Seoul by way of organization, ambience and culture and we are sure you will find the experience rewarding.

We look forward to seeing you in Seoul in 2011.

Professor Jean-Hilaire Saurat
President, ILDS
