Regional Meeting Committee

Regional Meeting Committee

The International Society of Dermatology’s (ISD) mission is to facilitate the exchange of information among the global community of dermatologists. By co-sponsoring various national and regional dermatological meetings, the ISD intends to increase the awareness of our society among dermatologists worldwide and to highlight the national and regional dermatological communities.

The ISD Regional Meeting Committee reviews applications for co-sponsorship of these meetings. This is done on an ad hoc basis, based upon submissions of applications. The application form is posted on the Society website and the application requires information on the proposed dates and site, names of at least three (3) ISD members in good-standing involved in the organization of the meeting, and the reason for co-sponsorship.

The deadline for applications will be at least 10 months in advance of the meeting, however, since there is a limit of 5 funded meetings per year and only one per country per year, the committee requests that applications be submitted by July 1, 2020 for meetings held in 2021.

Regional Meeting support may include a monetary grant based upon the proposal and its budget. ISD will also advertise the meeting on our website and in appropriate ISD publications.
