It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the International Meeting of our Society to be held in the exciting city of Lisbon.
International meetings of our Society are scheduled every two years and usually alternate between the USA and Europe with occasional events in Asia or South America. The last International Meetings in Europe took place in September 2009 in Besancon and November 2012 in Copenhagen with an average attendance of 250 participants.
Our program Chair, Joachim Fluhr and local Chair, Monteiro Rodrigues have put together an exciting scientific program balanced by an attractive social program.
I am look forward to welcoming you, whether veteran or novice in this field, to the fascinating, beautiful and culturally rich city of Lisbon.
Chairman of ISBS
Welcome to Lisboa’s ISBS World Congress!
Portugal is recognized for its role in a wide globalization effort during the discovery era, connecting people, cultures and knowledge. This effort facilitated growth and progress in all regions and people likely for the first time in human history.
The International Society for Biophysics and Imaging of the Skin (ISBS) has achieved a remarkable record in promoting skin research, and has accelerated the future in dermatology and related areas for the last 40 years. Thus, the motto we have chosen to designate this 40th World Congress of ISBS has multiple special significance and meaning.
We are happy to welcome you in Lisboa, where you will find history and tradition from architecture to life styles, from a multicultural cuisine, wine included, to wonderful weather and landscape. And, of course, where we will keep up with this central commitment - accelerating the future for functional skin research.
